'Fake Marijuana' May Trigger Heart Trouble in Teens
Date:11/8/2011

e chemicals should be permanently controlled," a DEA statement said.

Kane agreed that he can't say for sure that it was the K2 that caused the heart attacks. He also doesn't know if all the boys smoked the same batch. But he suspects the drug caused the coronary arteries that bring blood to the heart to spasm temporarily, cutting off blood supply.

And because the drugs are unregulated, "who knows what else these drugs could be contaminated with?" he said.

Since their heart attacks, the boys have recovered, although one who played high school football was devastated when Kane told him he'd have to sit out the season.

Texas has since banned K2.

"It still easy to get," Kane said. "I just saw a kid this week . . . who had smoked K2 and was having chest pain, palpitations, headaches and trouble breathing."

More information

The U.S. National Institute on Drug Abuse has more on K2.
