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.
There are marijuana rehab and treatment centers in Missouri that some like to go to stop their substance use. They donâ€™t realize that they will be labeled as powerless, weak, sick, as an addict and that most are religion based. They end up dedicating themselves to a lifetime of recovery and meetings. If these programs have not worked for you and you are tired from constantly going in and out of rehabs then there are non-12 step programs and non treatment programs that will show you how you can live your life substance free.
