Spice is Not Nice

  • anonymous Asks ...

    Does Spice legal high cause long term memory problems and if it does how long does it take before you start to get your memory back. I was a pretty regular user until the fall and I started noticing that my memory was getting really effected and I also was feeling really jumpy and paranoid. So I stopped using and I thought I would get my memory back but it has not happened even 6 months later I feel just as slow and forgetful as if I was smoking every day. But I do not feel as paranoid anymore. I think this is really bad stuff. Its funny (sad funny) I would probably have been much better off just using regular marijuana but I couldn’t because of drug testing so I had to use this nasty chemical stuff that’s messed me up. Sucks to be me.

    Here in Florida Spice is not legal because of the deleterious side effects from it's use. Many people have had to visit the emergency room after using Spice and many have had negative experiences prompting state regulations to shut down the sell of Spice and it's similar antecedent chemical components. Man made substances are usually much more potent than our own psycho-pharmacology and/or natural substances. It is never good to ingest designer drugs for obvious reasons; there is no longitudinal studies on them to know the harmful effects. You were the rat lab in this case and it is never worth the risk. I hope the best for you.
