There are teens in NZ having problems such as the shakes & not being able to sleep after having 'Synthetic Legal Marijuana' & becoming addicted & a UK girl has had severe brain damage, cannot walk, feed herself & has gone blind after having Synthetic Legal Marijuana. View the article here: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2273440/Teen-left-brain-damaged-blind-smoking-synthetic-marijuana.html

We cannot be irresponsible & let a harmful substance ruin lives.
Sign this petition & share it with your friends so the government stops this problem all together.  Restricting sales is not an option, it needs to be banned, so teenagers & young adults know that it is not okay, know that we care & Synthetic Marijuana will harm them.  It needs to be inaccessible.
