My name is Heather and I am the mother of a 17 year old son who is suffering long term effects from the consumtion of these drugs. They are marketed as an inscense or potpourri.(i.e. K2, Posh, Spice etc.) It does state on the packaging "Not for human consumtion" however they are sold for the exact purpose of smoking. My son is a normally very bright and articulate boy. He is currently reduced to behavior of approximately a six to eight year old. His focus, judgement and speach have all been affected. He is not sleeping more than a few minutes at a time. We made a trip to the ER on Thursday night because of his strange behavior and the doctor told me that there have been thousands of kids that have been through there from using this stuff. I refuse to let my son become a statistic from this garbage that is being sold at many of our gas stations, smoke shops, party stores and dollar stores. we have confronted several store owners in our town. Because it is currently not illegal to purchase as long as you are over the age of 18 they feel justified in having it in their establishments. Making them legal drug pushers.Please help me save all of our children.

      This has got to be stopped before we lose more lives, and ruin more of our future.

      Heather is my daughter's high school friend. These drugs are claiming the lives of too many of this generation's children. These drugs need to be made illegal and removed from the shelves NOW.
