DEA warns of a dangerous liquid synthetic cannabis harming kids

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

liquidSEATTLE –The DEA says it can cause hallucinations, seizures, even psychosis.

It comes in a bottle, it’s on the rise and the dangers are easy to conceal.

“Recently we’ve seen an increase in the liquid synthetic cannabinoids,” said DEA agent Douglas James.

Liquid forms of the chemical compounds are now sold online and are a threat to kids. They go by names like Bizarro and Cloud Nine Liquid and are marketed as herbal incense.

But the DEA says some people are using it in e-cigarettes and Vape pens to get high.

Olympus Vapour in Redmond tests their products and checks for underage customers. But the online world has no restrictions.

The so-called “wink and nod” style marketing hints at another use for these products.

The online reviews show how people are really using it.

One user wrote

“Different than the dry herbal but just as powerful. The liquid is sneaky. One minute your fine and the next minute you are rocketed into space.”

The DEA says it’s like playing Russian roulette with your life.

“It’s alarming. It’s concealable for law enforcement and parents in general,”

The DEA says more and more teens are being rushed to the emergency room.

The most recent case involved teens overdosing on synthetic drugs in the Sultan area.

    It’s just Q13’s weekly,’pot scare’ story. And yeh, how did kids find out about this. Over bloated news stories, like this. Fox is at over bloating.

    This is bull shit there is nothing dangerous about bizzaro e liquid. The kids getting sick, Hello they are lieing and using bizzarro e liquid as an excuse. Parents open ur eyes they are using meth or cocain and saying its bizzaro. So they dont get busted. Oh but government selling weed things that make you go mmmmm.

    This is the DEA’s fault to begin with. The alllllllll natural PLANT is illegal so people go find other alternatives.
    For any smoke shop selling this shit, they need to stop! The original chemical was called (JWH-018) which was the only chemical used that was similar to THC. Anything after that was DANGER. You smoke shops are contributing to a crap industry that is destroying lives. Quit the crap and stick with cannabis.

      Uhh, no. A large number of research chemicals are similar to THC and JWH-018. For example, AM-2201 is probably the strongest THC-like chemical known to make, with MAM-2201 right behind it. They are no more dangerous than JWH-018.

    I don’t think any of this stuff is truly harmful. No more harmful than anything else that gets abused. The real problem is people really need to just stop selling to minors and people under age.

    Been using Vapes for a few year, I quit smoking Cannabis a year ago from spending .all day everyday for 15 years smoking it.

    I tried a herbal high with my partner and was utterly shocked at what it did to us both.Massive kicking high and felt like we could die at one point. I thought my tolerance to this kind of stuff would be manageable but I had no idea the kick I would get me so punched in the face for a good hour.

    What ever is in these vape liquids, should be checked out and considered as illegal as cannabis.

    These are synthetic cannabinoids but the proper term is research chemical. The only crime here is the price. Pot is basically legal in the us to people who work as fucking cashiers and whatnot, not to veterans of the war, or those employed in the jobs that keep this country running. The unskilled benefit from legal pot currently, there is where synthetics play their proper role. Those society expects to keep working while not helping. Synthetics are shorter duration but out here more intense than any high grade cannabis. Short term use for me was completely fine, after too long became a bit dependant and the only safe way to come off is weening. The process I’m currently going through, after a year plus going strong an absence is prominently noticed. If you are prone to ANXIETY ATTACKS, have heart issues, internal shit that goes wrong under stress, also not a good idea to gamble research chemicals. Seen firsthand people that shouldn’t ingest synthetics and it can be scary. Should it “kill” you? No, but I’ve had one or two RC related panic attacks and you firmly do believe that your life is over. To the vapers out there just ignore this one guys… 99% of our community is blind to this. The 1% don’t have a steady enough hookup due to the “war on drugs”.
