Synthetic marijuana is believed to have sickened 221 people in Colorado during a monthlong outbreak this year, according to a federal report released Thursday.

I only recommend the real deal ... dude!
That’s why you should always insist on organically grown products.
“Synthetic marijuana is believed to have sickened 221 people in Colorado during a monthlong outbreak this year...”
Ol’ Siggy Freud might have something to say about the shape of the base of that bong leading up to the mouth end.
An outbreak is a situation where several people develop the same disease at the same time, from the same cause. It is not necessarily contagious.
I will definitely have to make time to check out the CDC website today at work. It figures, the CDC only publishes the good stuff when I have not had time to read their weekly report for a couple of weeks.
Especially when you live in a state wear grown marijuana is legal. Irony......
Why are they holding a “joint investigation”? Given that the problem was caused by synthetic pot they are definitely on the wrong track.
At last, some GOOD NEWS!
It's more like synthetic meth sprayed on pot pourri. I think a lot of the people who try it are expecting the more relatively benign effects of pot and might not try it if they knew they were getting a harder drug.
