Plus, the drug is now legal for recreational uses in a few states. However, despite more openness and acceptance of traditional marijuana, synthetic marijuana has been gaining popularity lately…and it probably shouldn't be.

Synthetic marijuana, also known as synthetic cannabinoids, is a designer drug sold under the pretense that it delivers the same high as marijuana. In reality, synthetic marijuana causes nightmarish hallucinations and violent behavior.

So let that be a lesson. DON'T SMOKE SYNTHETIC MARIJUANA! If you have to smoke something, use the real stuff. At least then you won't end up in the hospital.
