In addition, emergency-room physicians have reported that individuals who use these products experience serious side effects
that include convulsions, anxiety attacks, dangerously elevated heart rates, increased blood pressure, vomiting, and disorientation.
The risk of adverse health effects is further increased because similar products vary in the composition and concentration
of synthetic cannabinoids spiked on the plant material, and products may contain other unknown chemicals with undetermined
effects. "These five substances have the potential to be extremely harmful and, therefore, pose an imminent hazard to the
public safety," the DEA stated.
