1 man dead from synthetic cannabis use.

The use of unregulated designer drugs has lead to tragedy in Queensland. One man is dead and another on life support after using synthetic cannabis. A number of other people have been admitted to hospital suffering from toxic poisoning.

The use of unregulated drugs, often contaminated with other toxic substances is often fraught with danger. In addition, the synthetic cannabinoids themselves have not been tested for safety. Increasing numbers of people in Australia and overseas are being hospitalised as a result of smoking these synthetic drugs.
