I recently learned that my barely 16 year d son was using spice. He came clean with me and told me he had been doing it for 6 months and planned to continue using it occasionally.
Yesterday, the school called to tell me he rescue squad was on their way to pick him up. He smoked in the bathroom and had a psychotic reaction. Screaming until multiple teachers ran in to find him.
The hospital drug tested him and there were no other drugs found. He is now waiting to see if expelled from school.
The DEA got involved and took his phone. He consented or the alternative they said was a search warrant and they would have it. He told them what he had at his dads house and same thing-consent or they will get a search warrant.
It was the most frightening day of my life.
This above average smart kid with so much potential is now spiraling down. He admitted he’s been doing it for 4 years—-4 years!!! That means kids that are 12 years old out there doing this!
He is angry and in denial that its a problem and doesn’t really want to quit. He agreed to talking to someone-we are trying. Mentor program instead of counseling.
Kids know what to say to counselors so they can go home. Very sad and disheartening. Im ready to fight–hope we can win together and move on with a successful life.
If u suspect your kid is smoking this toxin don’t wait! Get mad and fight! Don’t be easy on them–make it stop!
What a horrible thing this is.
