Legalizing marijuana medical use in Alabama is not the only controversy going on. There has been a bigger problem, synthetic marijuana also known as Spice, K-2 and Genie, which is worse than real marijuana. Authorities are having it pulled off store shelves that sell it and it is now a felony if anyone is caught selling or using the substance. It's highly dangerous and deadly because of the pesticides this drug is made with causing kidney problems, suicides and hospitalizations.
