Illegal Synthetic Cannabinoid Spiked Bread Strikes 40 Ill in California

The Orange County Register has reported a strange news piece in which it claims that bread, spiked (knowingly!) with a synthetic cannabinoid (that goes in the market by different names such as Spice, K-2, Bliss, etc.), technically called JWH-122, has caused a spectrum of illness in 40 consumers, ranging from palpitations, dizziness and numbness to frank hallucinations.

An individual who was convinced that the bread was laced with something that caused his/her symptoms recruited an FDA approved laboratory to test the bread sample, which is how this misdemeanor came to notice.

The police has taken up the investigation.
