Louisiana Recognizes Dangers of Synthetic Marijuana
Date:7/25/2014

USA (PRWEB) July 25, 2014

As reported by the New Orleans Advocate in the article Use of Dangerous Synthetic Marijuana Increasing (7/3), the state of Louisiana has recently seen a large increase in people using synthetic marijuana, more so even than cocaine. Officials believe the increase is due to a misconception that the drug is safe because it's a “form” of marijuana. However, both doctors and police confirm that that belief is far from the truth. Going so far as to call it “poison,” doctors have acknowledged that the Louisiana Poison Control Center has received an influx of emergency calls from young people using the drug. Over the past year, the Baton Rouge hospital district has seen at least 200 cases related to synthetic marijuana. Many patients have experienced internal bleeding in the brain, very high heart rates and blood pressure levels, and aggressive hallucinations.

Among the hospital cases, doctors have seen people come in after experiencing psychotic episodes and one doctor recalled a patient who died after going into cardiac arrest. They have acknowledged that every case is different because people react differently to the various chemicals put into the drug. Since the chemicals in the drug are constantly changing, it is difficult for the state to keep changing to law to keep the substance illegal. Research and statistic have shown that synthetic marijuana abuse is high among veterans and school-aged children. In an attempt to offset the number of people who try it, Louisiana is currently making efforts to create a public health campaign.

Located in South Florida, Harbor Village, a rehab center, has programs in place to help those suffering from drug and alcohol dependency overcome their abuse. The 24/7 medically supervised detox facility allows each client to recover in a luxury, state-of-the art environment. Clients are welcomed with upscale accommodations including a beautifully furnished suite complete with satellite television, over an acre of scenic outdoor lounge area, spa, salon, massage and acupuncture services, healthy gourmet dining and a caring, attentive staff that guides each client every step of the way.

For information about this rehab center visit HarborVillageFlorida.com or call 855-290-4261
