Drug Facts

Spice is an illegal drug usually made by spraying chemicals onto shredded dried plant materials or put in liquid form. The chemicals are similar to the ones in the marijuana plant that get people high. This is why people call it "fake weed," but it is not the same as marijuana. Spice may affect your brain more strongly than marijuana. You can't predict what will happen when you take it. The effects can be very serious and can even cause death.
