This is an excellent video about synthetic drugs done by ABCNews. While the beginning of the story is covering Bath Salts, the last 6 minutes do a great job explaining Spice and shows how lives are impacted by the drug.
Nathan, a 17 year old from Los Angeles, says he smokes incense because he was able to pass the standard drug tests his mom made him take every week.
David, a baritone player in a high school band in Iowa, tried some K2 at a graduation party and a few hours later, he killed himself.
Dicky Sanders had a second psychotic episode, less than 24 hours after attempting to slit his throat, and was found dead by his parents. There was a rifle next to his body.
These are just a few of the stories about people who smoke herbal incense.
Nathan is lucky that he can still talk about his experience with the drug.
Unfortunately, David and Dicky can not.
