In Gainesville Florida, two synthetic marijuana products called “Purple Flake” and “Scooby Snax” have sent more than 24 people to the hospital. The contaminated synthetic drugs, also known as “spice” are hard to track since they’re difficult to regulate.

Gainesville’s smoke shop called Land B4 Time was raided by Drug Task Force officers because a person being treated at the ER said they purchased “spice” there. During the raid, police found a few pounds of the synthetic drug. Although no arrests have been made, charges are pending.
