Fake pot causes lots of real deaths

“There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” Proverbs 14:12

Talk to your kids about the danger of synthetic marijuana, it is not a “harmless high”. Fake pot has the potential to kill your kid deader than a door nail after only one hit. Think not? Just go ask Connor’s mom about it.

Parents of a 19-year-old California teen who recently died after smoking synthetic marijuana spoke to KTLA about trying to prevent similar deaths from happening in the future. On July 11, Connor Eckhardt inhaled one hit of dried herbs that had been sprayed with chemicals to cause a pot-like high, his parents said.


Pay close attention to Connor Eckhardt’s weeping mother, and learn a lesson that may just save the life of your child.

“In a moment of peer pressure, he gave into that, thinking that was OK, it was somehow safe, and one hit later, he goes to sleep and never wakes up,” Connor’s father, Devin Eckhardt, said.

Connor Eckhardt quickly slipped into a coma and experienced brain swelling, his parents said. Effects of smoking the often-legal product include altered mental state, irregular heartbeat and seizures, the Los Angeles Times reported.

“These substances are not benign,” Dr Andrew Monte, the lead author of an editorial in the New England Journal of Medicine, said. “You can buy designer drugs of abuse at convenience stores and on the Internet. People may not realize how dangerous these drugs can be – up to 1,000 times stronger binding to cannabis receptors when compared to traditional marijuana.”

      Well Canabis OIL kills cancer cells and from many studies and literature does a better job then most cancer drugs but the drug companies can’t patent it and charge exorbinant amounts of money so they want to discredit it. That doesn’t mean that smoking marijuana kills cancer.
      There are some very legitimate uses for medical marijuana though and with less harmful effects then pharmaceuticals. But again if they can’t charge through the nose for them they don’t want people to know the benefits!
