The Truth About Synthetic Marijuana, Spice and K2
In the past, when Spice was still being sold commercially, the packaging listed a variety of alternative natural herbs and other substances that were purportedly the active ingredients of the drug. In reality, Spice was actually examined under strict, professional, chemical analysis; it was found that the typical characteristics that would have appeared in lab results if it were made with the claimed ingredients were absent.
In other words, the ingredient list on Spice packaging when it was still sold commercially was a lie. Because of this, it has physically addictive properties on a magnitude that natural marijuana doesn’t possess.
The formula for the creation of the first version of Spice, once discovered, resulted in a two-year ban on sales of the substance by the US government in 2013. However, because there is no formal regulation of this substance and its manufacturing in the same way that there is for alcohol, tobacco, and other substances, the ingredients can—and have—been changed many times.
This is an attempt to circumvent the American ban by selling new versions of Spice that technically do not follow the original banned recipe, and aren’t currently illegal. However, because of this same unregulated nature, these new formulations don’t require rigorous testing to confirm safety, and results of using these variants can be very harmful, even lethal.

Spice is a new and dangerous addition to the world of drugs that is currently in a state of flux. It’s banned by the government but still manages to find its way into legal sales and distribution channels thanks to an incredibly dangerous practice of experimenting with new ingredients without proper testing.
