A potent and spice is a highly addictive variety of synthetic marijuana has swept across the region and hit hard in Las Cruces. The drug has caused an enormous spike in overdose emergencies. Part of the appeal of the drug relates to the characteristic that is is not detectable in normal drug testing regimens. It is a drug that users in controlled conditions can use without fear of being caught by drug screenings and tests. The drug is susceptible to impurities and poisons because its makers do not adhere to any standards or formulas. The symptoms include violence and agitation. The side-effects include organ damage and heart failure.
Painkiller addictions have spread so quickly and resist treatment because they change the brain's chemistry and create a powerful craving. The use of opiates act on the brain to release a chemical called dopamine. After a period, the body depends on the illegal drug to regulate the dopamine and sets off a powerful craving for the drugs. Understanding that there is a physical basis for the addiction helps treatment providers understand the keys to controlling opiate and prescription drug abuse.
