“I agreed to smoke with a friend earlier this year, but we were alone and I didn’t know him too well. I thought that it was regular marijuana but it ended up being K2 and he had lied. After smoking it, I got super high and I was very suspicious. I was walking, about to take the metro home, when everything went black and I passed out on the ground. I had a seizure and people around saw. I was rushed to a hospital and was blacked out until about 2 hours later. While I was blacked out, apparently, I ripped out my IV and so they had to put a new one in my hand. I was high for a while and when I came back, my parents were standing over me in the hospital bed and there was blood all over my arm from ripping out the IV. I looked in the mirror and I was as white as paper and the veins in my head were sticking out. I was sweating and my sweat smelled like K2. After I did a drug test, it had turned out that the K2 was laced with PCP and speed. Watch out for it, it’s no joke and it’s everywhere in DC.”
“When my boyfriend and I were in the 7th grade, he started following the K2 “trend” with his friends. I hated it. He would never have time for me & doing crazy things just to get it. Then a year later, he was still smoking it so I told him if he doesn’t get himself together I was leaving. So, he stopped smoking it & we were happy again. Then one month later he’s doing it again. So, I signed him up for an addiction program without him knowing but he came home 6 months later and did everything all over again. BUT WORST. He started to sit in a corner laying down at bus stops he was losing everything including me. So, in the summer of 2016, he got asserted he came home clean they tested him for K2 & never smoked it again and until this day he is still clean and I’m with him again happily. You don’t have to smoke K2 for it to have an effect on your life. Take me, for example, try to help your loved ones don’t leave them. Remember everyone falls some of us just fall harder than others.”
“In 2008 all the way to 2014, I was a heavy K2 user. I was going through hell; not eating; looking, waiting and sleeping at bus stops high; not thinking straight or positive at all…and I lost a lot of love. I know some people that died from it or have gotten really sick because of the lack of water so they died of dehydration… I finally stop the use but I will always remember how it brought me a lot of pain in my past and it’s not worth it… That chemical is made to tear us down so my best advice to the next is to leave it alone before you regret a lot of stuff that will happen in the future.”
“I prefer Marijuana, but my job started doing random drug testing so I started using fake weed. This stuff is extremely dangerous. I would do it and everything went black. When I came around about 2 hours had passed and I felt like crap but I had the intense urge to do it again. During the period I was doing it everything seemed to be a foggy dream. The more I did it the less it took to cause me to black out. Fortunately, I was able to quit before any thing serious happened and will never do that crap again.
Very dangerous stuff and it needs to be outlawed, not just the specific ingredients but the products altogether.”
“The day I stopped smoking K2 is a day I’ll never forget. My best friend and I never had any complications when it came to K2, but it affected my sister differently. You hear that K2 affects people differently, and this is true.
Our dogs noticed a change in her before anybody else did. We were smoking it in her room and she leaned over and fell. Then, she got up and went on a straight rampage, destroying everything, knocking down anything in her path. Trying to calm her down was a task. We tried to feed her milk to calm her down. I felt so bad because I didn’t know what was going on, or what would happen to her. It was the scariest, craziest night ever. We didn’t know who she was. Her face wasn’t her. Her actions were not her.
The funny part about it is that she didn’t remember any of it. I vowed never to touch that stuff again, and so did she.”
“I’ve been smoking K2 for four years. I’ve lost my relationships with family, friends, and girlfriends. I’ve lost jobs, and my place of residence. I’ve blacked out on numerous occasions, and now I have nerve damage and memory loss. Yet, I’m still at it. K2 is dangerous and addictive.”
“‘It’s legal’, and that’s after I took the hit. Within 8 seconds it hit me like a massive wave. I was having a very horrible reaction to it. The people around me just stared at me; they left me there on the mattress and locked the door. “Our lord who art in heaven,” I started to pray and of course everyone is scared off by that. All I could remember is the Lord’s Prayer and my fathers phone number. It felt as if I was locked away in the corner of my mind. I had a sensation like just waking up from a bad dream. I was lucky to survive.Recently I saw a video clip on Facebook and these kids videotaped a young man smoking “K2″. He had a seizure and bit his tongue off and fell back off the bench he was sitting on. These young men just left him there. I began to sob and started to feel a heaviness on my chest and shakes. I had a flash back and severe anxiety. I know that not all people have a bad reaction to it but please do not take your chances. As a young woman this has had a huge effect on my mental health, and I know there are consequences to every action. Don’t let K2 be your last.”
“It’s robbed me of a lot. I’ve been on it on and off for 4 years, and I’m lucky to be alive. My husband divorced me cause of it I’ve lost the respect of my kids and have even been investigated by CPS. It’s no good. I do believe that this stuff destroyed my life, including an accident where I almost died last summer. It’s bad stuff and people need to know. I wish I could do more. If i could just help one person to quit this crap before it’s too late, I think I would feel a little better.”
