Spice, which is marketed in many names and can be bought in South Carolina, but is illegal in this state, has put three young people from Columbus County in the hospital for treatment as overdose victims.
The synthetic cannabinoid product is marked “Not for human consumption,” but is being smoked in flavored cigars or as a marijuana joint in the Whiteville area just about every night.
Eight youths, ages 18 to 20, have been arrested on felony charges involving the products.
