Marijuana use in Iowa no longer compares to the recent amount of synthetic marijuana use that is going on. In June of 2013, Federal drug agents raided 11 eastern Iowa businesses for synthetic drugs. They seized hundreds of pounds of synthetic marijuana and stimulants along with money, vehicles and handguns. Smoking synthetic marijuana or also known by many brands as K2, Blaze, and Bizzaro to just name a few, have caused teenagers and young adults to commit suicide, behave violently, hallucinate, have heart attacks, seizures, and many more devastating side effects including death. Some of these side effects can last 3-5 hours or longer and cause permanent brain damage and blindness.
