Spice is back, in vape form!

Spice is back, in vape form!

Remember spice, that terrible drug that was basically super meth on meth? The drug that turned human beings into living zombies on ultra crack?  Yea sadly that's back, and nine young people have collapsed after unknowingly using a vape containing the synthetic drug spice.

Greater Manchester Drug Alerts Panel said it knew of six incidents since February where people had been taken to hospital after inhaling the drug. Health agencies have now warned people to avoid products sold as "THC vape juice", "THC vape pens" or "THC oil" as they actually be this new incarnation of the unholy demon drug known as spice. The Greater Manchester Police is still actively investigating and looking to shut down the dealers selling the illegal and dangerous drug.

Why would anyone do spice knowingly? Nobody knows and that's why all of these would be stoners are actually victims in these bait and switch illegal narcotics transactions. The eLiquid, is being sold as a "natural cannabis", has also been sold as "cannabis oil" or "cannabis vape juice", according to the Greater Manchester Drug Alerts Panel.

The panel, which brings together police, NHS, local authorities and drug user support agencies, said incidents occurred in Rochdale, Oldham and Bury between February and June.  Two incidents in the Oldham area led to five school-age children collapsing and being rushed to hospital.  Michael Linnell, who coordinates Greater Manchester Drug Alerts Panel, said the liquids indeed contained the same chemicals found in the dangerous spice drug.

Mr. Linell stated; "The risk of vaping spice is far more dangerous than from a natural cannabis product." Manchester has faced problems with the widespread use of the drug in recent years, with one MP describing the situation as a "crisis" and asking for government help. 

Also known as Mamba, spice was formerly referred to as a "legal high", before it was outlawed in 2016.  It has been found to have reemerged on the black market and has been sold as both a 10mL bottle and a prefilled cartridge for some of the more common vape devices.

Dr. Prun Bijral, who is a member of the health panel, described the incidents as very worrying.  "Fortunately it does not seem likely they will suffer any long-term harm, but we don't want to see anyone else affected, particularly as we approach the school summer holidays," he said. He continued; "Young people who buy this product thinking it will have an effect similar to natural cannabis are not only being ripped off, they are also putting themselves and their friends in real danger."

Public Health England said it is not aware of any similar incidents in other parts of the country as of this posting.  How crazy is it we have to revert to the times where some people are literally drugging other people in order to make a buck? Will spice reemerge and reach the popularity it once had or have the consumers already figured it out and rejected the product from being on the market?
