Marijuana use in Michigan is no longer the only way teenagers and young adults get high. Synthetic marijuana or also known as K2, Spice, etc, besides tobacco and alcohol is the second widely most used drug. Synthetic marijuana can cause seizures, violent behavior, hallucinations, heart attacks, permanent brain damage and even death. Lawmakers in Michigan are trying to make the sales of synthetic marijuana illegal but it has become very hard to do because the makers of synthetic marijuana are constantly changing the ingredients in it and have learned to get around the law.
Michigan Marijuana rehab and treatment centers will inform you that going to a marijuana treatment center is your only solution, that you have a disease, and that you are not held accountable for your behaviors and actions just for that reason alone. This is untrue and there has been research done that proves people can change their way of thinking and their behaviors. These things can be taught at a non-12 step program or a non-treatment program.
