    Synthetic marijuana, widely known by the name K2 or Spice, affects the mental state of a person, causing a sudden psychotic break and ruining the entire immune system. However, its use is not banned in Armenia.

    Overdose of synthetic marijuana can be fatal for a human being, even a small amount can cause panic, fear of death, accelerate heart rhythms, ‘ringing’ in the ears, visual illusions which, in many cases, can lead to suicide or self-harm.

    Narcologist Petros Semirjyan Spice can have a stronger impact on human psyche than cannabis or marijuana, with the consequences being observed within several days.

    “It also harms other organs affecting a person’s mental state and causing different changes, even mental disorders,” he said.

    “People develop an addiction to synthetic marijuana after using it for a week,” he added.
