Marijuana use in Florida in the eyes of others seems to be the safer choice than choosing synthetic marijuana. In a nine month period in 2010, the National Poison Data System received 1,898 reports of health problems that consisted of some having seizures that caused brain damage and death and in 2011, there were 197 cases of synthetic marijuana overdoses. Most of the synthetic marijuana is manufactured in Asia and consists of over 11 different strains.
