But the effects of the drug can be devastating. If a teenager smokes too much - he can lose complete control of his body. And that's exactly what happened to the young man from Jersey City.
According to reports, he was going up the steps on the first day of school, when he started to overdose. A teaching assistant watched as he started to convulse and go down the steps.
Later MTO News learned that the boy was taken to the hospital.
Here is the video - warning it is GRAPHIC:
Back in June the New York Times reported that there have been 33 people who are suspected to have overdosed on Synthetic Marijuana in Brooklyn, New York.
There is a word that local residents and workers use to describe a group of drug users whose presence they say has grown around a busy Brooklyn transit hub: zombies. What was once a few familiar faces has turned into a tribe of strangers, walking around, staggering and looking lost, in the throes, it is believed, of the ill effects of K2, a synthetic drug that officials in New York have been working hard to eradicate.
The problem in the neighborhood has gotten to be such that a manager of an urban farm nearby, tired of the smoke wafting onto the property, posted two hand-painted wooden signs with a simple message: “No Smoking K2.”
