Cases of the K2 drug, otherwise known as Spice have started popping up around the world yet again. Just recently a drug dealer suspected of distributing K2 has been arrested in Austin, Texas.
Austin Police Department has answered dozens of calls regarding K2 overdoses in the past year. Most of the cases were reported in the vicinity of a homeless shelter, in downtown Austin.
44-year-old Salah Said Omar El-Hennawi is one of six people that have been accused of running the underground synthetic marijuana business.
Meanwhile, across the pond, similar cases have started appearing in the United Kingdom. Spice has been a craze since the early 2010’s in the UK, as it has been nearly impossible to put an end to the synthetic drug-fueled crisis.
On the video below you can clearly see addicts struggling to stay on their feet, while under influence of Spice in Grimsby, UK. The camera shows 2 people, one of them presumably a woman, staggering around, barely aware of their surroundings.
The person behind the camera was a motorist, said that he was shocked to see these two behave in such a manner, and appalled to see them when they approached the pair with a baby.
The city of Grimsby has seen a disturbing, growing trend of Spice abuse, some of which can even be seen on the streets of the city. Earlier this month Grimsby police found about 50 bags of controlled substances – of which some is thought to be Spice.
