Synthetic cannabinoids, also known as synthetic marijuana or a number of common names such as Spice, Kush, or K2, have been implicated in overdoses and fatalities nationwide. These drugs are designed to mimic the effect of marijuana’s active components on the body, but in many cases are far more potent and cause harmful side effects. In March 2017, the Texas Attorney General’s Office launched a webpage offering information regarding the dangers of using synthetic cannabinoids.

A recent review of impairment indicators for both synthetic cannabinoids and marijuana use in Arizona drivers led to the following conclusion: Drivers under the influence of synthetic cannabinoids were more frequently impaired with confusion, disorientation, and incoherent, slurred speech than drivers under the influence of marijuana in this population evaluated by DREs.[/cs_text][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][cs_section parallax=”false” style=”margin: 0px;padding: 45px 0px;”][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px;”][x_image type=”none” src=”https://secureservercdn.net/192.169.223.13/tzs.b72.myftpupload.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/370.png” alt=”” link=”false” href=”#” title=”” target=”” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” info_content=””][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][cs_section parallax=”false” style=”margin: 0px;padding: 45px 0px;”][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px;”][cs_text]Quality Forensic Toxicology has cutting edge analytical resources and experienced forensic scientists to provide rapid and accurate analysis of blood and urine specimens for the presence of these compounds.
