Students Taking Action Not Drugs Launches New Fall Campaign About Synthetic Drugs
This is the dawn of synthetic drug use. These drugs have been manufactured under the guise of incense and other products labeled not for human consumption. Yet, it is widely known such products are used by those looking to get high. News about these drugs have swept our nation. From emergency federal bans, to zombie-like attacks, you can rarely turn on the TV or peruse the internet without learning about the damage these drugs have caused.
Bathsalts were designed to mimic the affects of methamphetamine and/or cocaine. Users have reported violent urges and suicidal thoughts for days following the use of these drugs. Synthetic marijuana is another drug manufactured to mimic the euphoric effects of marijuana. Its known side effects are extreme hallucinations, vomiting, severe anxiety and paranoia, and heart problems.
These drugs contributed to the nationwide hike of emergency room visits. Make no mistake, these drugs are illegal and contain chemicals that are banned by the DEA. Don’t fall prey. To download and personalize anti-drug materials, please visit www.studentstakingaction.org
