Ban Synthetic Drugs

1,136 Signatures Goal: 1,000

My office, New Day CounselingĀ is launching a petition to ban the sale and use of synthetic drugs that Mimic an Illicit Drug. Public health officials, local law enforcement, and community members are concerned about the recent surge in the use of such substances. The petition will require 1,000 signatures from Odessa in support of banning these dangerous products. These drugs, with names like K2, Spice and Angry Birds, can be obtained locally and on the internet. They are sold as incense orpotpourri, but areĀ  smoked to produce a high. There is a law against it but due to the chemical makeup, retailers are able to sell it legally. The media, poison control and medical community report that users of these products can have strong psychotic episodes, including extreme paranoia, hallucinations, hypertension, suicidal thoughts and heart attacks. These drugs can have long-term damaging effects, and some have died from using these products. I hope you join me in the fight to ban synthetic drugs from our community by signing your name to this petition.

    I have personally had to deal with a loved one on synthetic drugs. It's horrible. It needs to be ban for not only the safety and we'll beings of the family but of the individual using as well.
