Experiencing a Psychotic Episode
It’s no bueno to have absolutely zero control over yourself and your actions, so one major reason to refrain from smoking synthetic is that you might flip out and become a news story. It’s been well-documented that synthetic marijuana can trigger psychosis that lasts for months. One extreme case from over the summer found a 22-year-old man in Texas who began barking like a dog in a non-DMX fashion before chasing his family and neighbors. And then he went toe-to-toe with the family’s actual dog.
If it brings out the beast in you, just say no.
