Synthetic marijuana use in Missouri was banned from the DEA but that has not stopped drug dealers because they are always one step ahead of the law and finding ways around it. Synthetic marijuana is any plant vegetation that is sprayed with dangerous chemicals. The side effects are 10-100 times more potent than natural marijuana and is easier to access than other drugs. It causes rapid heart rates, inability to talk, seizures, hallucinations, brain damage, heart attacks and death. K2 and these other synthetic drugs can still be purchased on-line, in gas stations and convenience stores even though the state has banned them.
