A brand new type of synthetic drug has been introduced all across North America. This new chemical is called 2C-I (also known as SMILES) and according to many doctors, it’s makeup and effects on people are very similar to another dangerous new street drug sold as ‘Bath Salts’.
These chemicals can cause a rapid increase in heart rate, blood pressure and overall body temperature, which when combined with a seriously impaired mental state, can lead to a myriad of potential problems.
This hallucinogenic drug can induce a high that lasts for hours or even days making the outcome of ingesting it uncertain at best. This drug has been connected to several teenage deaths in recent weeks and is even suspected to be the cause of a high profile death involving an actor (Johnny Lewis) from the popular TV show ‘Sons of Anarchy’.
While many states have begun to crack down on the ‘head shops’ that sell these new altered types of amphetamines, they are still widely available to anyone who is looking.
Cornerstone of Southern California makes every possible attempt at staying on the cutting edge of chemical dependency treatment and will be seeking out ways of testing for these new substances as soon as they become available.
