Synthetic Drugs

Synthetic drugs are made in labs and sold to retailers under deceiving names. The most common are synthetic forms of marijuana such as

  • K2 or Spice
  • Bath Salts (a synthetic stimulant)

A common misconception for some using synthetic marijuana is to pass drug screens. Due to the increase in use of these drugs—and a DEA ban of the chemicals used in manufacturing the products—most hospital labs can now test for synthetic drugs.
