Drugs have always been a huge issue in the United States. Moreover, people are creating new ones, that are dangerous than those we already knew. Spice is a very good example. It also is known as synthetic marijuana. The drug has created a health crisis among homeless people in Los Angeles.
- Spice, also known as synthetic marijuana, made more victims during this week among homeless people.
- Doctors are expecting more patients due to this drug. Drugs are a major problem in the whole world.
We know that people who live on the streets are consuming drugs hoping they will forget about their problems. It seems that the drug itself caused a bigger problem for them. Eighteen people were treated after the doctors were called, fourteen of them were transported to hospitals. This is not the first time when Spice is making victims.
Patients seemed to have similar symptoms and that is why doctors think this could be a health crisis. Spice or synthetic marijuana is a drug with many effects and most of them are harmful to our bodies. It is a cheap drug and homeless people are used to it. The doctors said that patients have mental problems. Some of them have even seizures, which means the drug is more dangerous that we thought. Most of the problems were during the summer, so they think Spice has worse effects during this period of time.
Doctors say that we should pay more attention because our lives can be in danger.That is a dangerous drug. People smoke it and then they lose control over their body.This could lead to accidents on the street. Spice is just another example of what drugs can do to us. In the United States, many homeless people are taking drugs. Teenagers also want to try them without knowing the effects that drugs have.
We hope the authorities will do something about these people, who have no house to live in. Even if they are helped by the doctors, when they get back in the streets, they will use the drug again. Moreover, Spice is one of the cheapest drugs on the market. It is better to give homeless food or clothes than money. You do not know what he/she will do with it.
