Fake Pot Can Take Out Your Kidneys

News Flash: Illicit drug manufacturers are not chemists. They do not have BS, MA, or PhD degrees. They do not work for Johnson & Johnson or Pfizer or even your local pharmacy. What they do is mix up unknown substances in a used cat box in a dingy garage and sell it to kids.

Case is point: Spice or K2. These are synthetic cannabinoid compounds—basically fake pot. Sure they get you high. Sure they turn a frat party into a psychedelic funhouse, but they can also land you in a dialysis unit. Not that sounds like fun, doesn’t it?

As Jimi would say: “Purple Haze all in my brain.”

Of course, sadly, Jimi is dead.
