One of the scariest parts of the drug is that everyone who uses it reacts a little bit differently.
The Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office tells KRMG it’s also not clear what exactly is in it.
“It took on the common name as ‘synthetic marijuana,’ but in reality, it’s not that. It’s all chemicals.” Major Shannon Clark said.
Major Clark also says it has been tough for law enforcement to do anything about it because even as lawmakers try to outlaw the substances, the chemists making the drug tweak it just enough to avoid the law.
“We seem to be chasing our tail; the legislature is doing the best they can to outlaw the substances.” Major Clark added.
People using K2 have said it has similar effects to those of PCP. Major Clark says because of the unpredictability of the reaction, it’s extremely dangerous.
“These people are really taking a chance with whatever they’re trying to ingest or put into their bodies.” Major Clark said.
Violence and sexual aggression are just a few of the extremely dangerous reactions observed after using K2. Those were on display in Tulsa recently after a woman was allegedly raped and then found wandering down the street naked and holding a knife.
