I was introduced to spice when I was 13, and I’ll never forget what it did to me. I probably smoked it for a few months before I had an adverse reaction to it because every batch is different.
My friends told me it was just legal weed and that it wouldn’t show on a drug test but I was so young I didn’t think to question it. I just wanted to get high. At first, I loved it. It was intense.
Sometimes you’d hallucinate or just chill out. But one night I was at a friend’s house, and I was chilling upstairs with her and her brother. Their rooms were connected but on opposite sides of the upstairs.
Her brother asked if I wanted a hit and if course I did. So I took a hit and walked back over to her bed. Didn’t feel anything, so I got up and took one more hit, and I didn’t remember walking back over to my friend’s bed.
She was setting up a cot for me to sleep on and I just remember looking at her. She moved her head and asked if I was the okay cause, I didn’t look good. She looked like she had seven heads, each a different color.
Out of nowhere, I couldn’t breathe, and my heart was racing faster than I could keep up with and everything just started crashing around me.
Felt like an earthquake inside my body, I tried to scream, but I couldn’t breathe, so no noise was coming out.
I lay on the bed and asked God just to let me live, and I’d never touch it ever again. I lost complete control of my body and blacked out. Everything was just blank.
I woke up to her family, (her dad was an EMT thank god) holding my legs down and rubbing water on my face while a fan-cooled me off.
I had no idea where I was, who I was or what happened. I was still just shaking violently, feeling so incredibly sick. Needless to say, I was scared straight. Didn’t touch it ever again! I truly thought I wasn’t going to make it.
Spice is anything but legal weed; it’s straight chemicals. I knew drug addicts that were into much harder things, and not even they would touch it.
It’s too risky. I used to smoke a bag at a time with friends, and the night I had a seizure I had two hits. One bad batch and it could be your last. Not worth it.
