Synthetic Drugs – K2 And Pink
Synthetic drugs are a big problem in the US, and around the world more generally. The accessibility of these “legal highs” means that users aren’t always aware of the dangers posed. It also means that the market can become flooded with unregulated products.
This ever-changing landscape means that government agencies are continually posting alerts on emerging trends to keep users safe. Two of the most important in 2016 refer to K2, one of the most well-known drugs, and a newer substance called Pink.
New York City has set out the new warning on K2 after a series of hospitalizations. Meanwhile, the DEA has placed a temporary ban on Pink over drug abuse.
