LA State Police Find Some CBD Products Spiked With Synthetic Pot
CBD PRODUCTS SPIKED— Louisiana authorities have encountered products marketed as delivering the cannabis extract CBD but were found to be spiked with synthetic marijuana. As of April, laboratory testing by state police had found 14 gummy products listed as containing CBD but instead had the dangerous synthetic street drug. The Associated Press reports this practice has sent dozens of people nationwide to emergency rooms. Unlike real CBD, synthetic marijuana gives an intense high and can cause seizures and psychosis. In all, lab testing shows spiked edible or vape products marketed as CBD in at least 13 states. Industry representatives acknowledge some spiking with synthetic marijuana is an issue, but say many companies are reputable.
