Synthetic marijuana use in Montana is increasing in popularity. If you have never seen it before it comes in little packets and sells from $16-20 and are usually marked â€œnot for human consumptionâ€� and are passed off as air fresheners but are sold behind the smoking counter. 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. No one knows the types or amount of chemicals synthetic marijuana is made with and this is what makes it so deadly.
There are many who attend Montana marijuana rehab and treatment centers but most of these places are a 12 step programs and have therapists that tell you that relapsing is the normal part of recovering and that sends a message to the user that they are powerless and that relapsing is expected. However, there are alternative programs available such as non-12 step programs or non-treatment programs that will help you learn that you are in control and teach you how to live without drugs and alcohol freely.
