People don't realize how dangerous K2 and Spice really are. A former user suffered from paralysis on his face and within five months went from using one and a half grams to ten grams a day. It also causes severe migraines, hallucinations, seizures and even death. It is also devastating to the development of one's mind and literally makes you dumb.
