Is smoking spice gold a particular health hazard? How does it compare to the health risks of smoking cannabis?
"Spice Gold": "spice gold" is a designer drug that mimics cannabis. Multiple herbs (some hallucinogenic) are sprayed with a temporarily legal thc-like substance.

The site http://www.Incb.Org/incb/en/precursors/index.Html leads to a page of precursors, but doesn't say exactly which drugs each precursor is used to make.

Make sure you change the filter at the recommended intervals. ...Read more
