[TX] Houston girl suffers strokes from synthetic mj [Re: Anonymous]
    #17493815 - 01/03/13 10:14 PM (1 year, 6 months ago)

http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-895582



Emily Bauer was a normal 16 year old girl full of light and laughter, until she decided to try and smoke "Kush", a synthetic marijuana sold under the name potpourri by corner stores and headshops in the area. Emily figured because her friends were doing it, and all seemed fine, that she would be okay. She was terribly mistaken, as is thousands of others who have suffered complications from smoking "fake weed". Kush is unregulated, and you never know what's in it, since the makers are constantly changing a chemical in the compound to find a loophole every time it is outlawed.

Within 15 minutes of smoking, Emily told her boyfriend that she had a migraine and was going to lay down. She then suffered strokes which put her in a psychotic like state, where she proceeded to urinate herself, run into walls, speak gibberish, hallucinate and act violent. The police were called to help restrain her into an ambulance, where she was taken to Northwest Cypress Hospital. The doctors put Emily into an induced coma, where she spent the next 4 days in ICU as they did multiple tests on her brain.

The doctors quickly found out she had strokes, and it had caused severe vasculitis and that parts of her brain were permanently shut down and damaged from the blood vessels contracting and cutting off the oxygen to her brain-- but they also gave us hopes, one as such that she could hear us talking, because her heart rate would rise while we were in the room holding her hand, and stroking the hair off of her swollen face.

After they did all they could do, they life-flighted her in a helicopter to Memorial Herman Hospital Children's ICU on Fannin, where the family learned the hope that her blood vessels were starting to open back up and allow blood to reach her brain. We all grew overjoyed, little did we know this would become our next nightmare.

The open vessels allowed too much blood to reach her brain, and the pressure around her brain was a 28 (a normal human brain is between 1 and 10) and she would need a life or death operation on the brain immediately or she would die. And the other head of the coin stated that if, by chance, she made it through this operation, that the state we saw her in now.. would be how she would be forever -- a vegetable. My mother decided quickly to give Emily the operation, she signed the papers and gave Emily her last goodbyes as they wheeled her off to the Adult Neurology ICU of Memorial Herman and proceeded to drill a whole into her skull where they could insert a tube to drain fluid from her skull.

The family waited and cried, we had no idea if we would ever see Emily again, but we knew that even if we did, we will never have our old Emily back.

Emily made it through the surgery, and she now lays in the ICU, looking peaceful and heavily sedated, as the doctor monitors her and the family waits. It could be days, weeks, months; She will probably never be the same.

I am trying to get the story out about this so called "legal weed", which corner stores sell and do not card for because it is considered aroma. Kids and Adults are smoking this and it's been having serious consequences. Get this story out for Emily, please. So that maybe our tragedy could help others.

Sucks. A tragedy even. But people need to be more aware of what they are putting in their bodies. And do research. These drugs/chems have real lasting consequences.

Damn that sucks, this stuff i evil. I used to smoke it quite a lot and it pretty much fucked me up, I cant even smoke weed regularly now. Some dude I knew was like 14 and had a stroke because of this, he couldnt walk or talk right for months.

Wow, I've tried it a few times and don't like it, but this is something else. Next time i hear of people smoking this shit I'm going to have them read this thread.

The thing is that we have no way of knowing what "this shit" is - most synthetic cannabinoid agonists are probably relatively safe.  I didn't hear stories like this when jwh-018 was all the rage.  But now that they have banned that and the other well known ones, they are putting chemicals in that haven't been tested much.

I have seen a few posts on here recommending Kush as a good brand, I wonder how much they have changed their formulation recently.

Hopefully someone is testing the Kush she had - Though without good reference standards, which are nonexistent for new chemicals, it is very difficult to determine the identity of the drugs in a sample.

I was blown away by this myself.  I always considered the synthetic pot variations of RC's to be on the safer side than some of the more "adventurous" ones out there.  This just goes to show you that you can never just assume that something is safe. It's a sad story for sure.

This is true, we never really know what is in them nowadays. I think a lot of it has to do with individual body chemistry also.

I suspect the use of chemicals like those will drop in places where MJ has been legalized. If so hopefully they'll add that information to the end of articles like these.

So where is the FDA on this one its obvious these are for consumption just because its sold as incense or whatever it is still tuning a blind eye to it but i have no faith in  the FDA anyway but we should still have info on its chemical structure. Tho these synthetics are working in the drug wars favor to make people think all drugs are just as bad.

I wish that would be true.  Unfortunately, many of the adults who are driving the market for this GARBAGE are subject to DOT/OSHA (federal) regulation and as such may be asked to provide a urine sample almost any moment with very little advance notice.  One such area I am aware of is a nuclear power plant and military base in one of the western states, the headshops are making a killing selling this junk for $20 a gram and up to people who work in and around heavy machinery and/or radioactive materials on the base.  They buy the "incense" so they can get a nice feel after work without potentially pissing dirty and thus jeopardizing their livelihood.

If you want to see things improve??  Demand legalization of recreational marijuana AND industrial hemp production on the FEDERAL LEVEL with improved testing standards for roadside and or jobsite intoxication screening.  Only then will the GARBAGE market subside and the cartel pressures in the national forests recede.

pray it comes true.

I mean can you imagine it. Imagine how that poor girl feels. Locked inside her body, unable to see, communicate, but can only hear the voice of her parents.

.......this ruins my night, but certainly makes me thankful. We should all realize this the next time one of you scrubs makes a 'I WANNA KILL MYSELF THREAD!!!"

You have no idea what its like to truly need your misery to end. Imagine if that poor girl is Bipolar, schitzophrenic, or suffers from some sort of mental dissorder. She can do nothing but sit there! Imagine if shes in, pain, hungry, craves sexual contact......doesnt matter :facepalm:

I seriously hope she dies, I really do :sad:

"The doctors put Emily into an induced coma"  Meaning, they fried her brain with general anesthetics.

That's a real shame. I hope she makes a full recovery. I also wish people wouldn't buy into this stuff so much. Sure synthetics can be dangerous, but so can almost every other drug that exists. There are only a handful that I'm aware that won't cause some significant harm in high enough doses. That knee-jerk "Synthetics are fucking evil!" type reaction is exactly what the media is trying to create. It just reminds me of the bath salts hysteria that the media created.

starfire_xes is on the money

i know emily


synthetic cannabinoids are strong, but they have no interaction with glutamate.


she freaked out and went to the hospital and they anesthetized her.


not saying synth noid's are safe, but she was alive and didn't need a gas mask until she went to the hospital

she is fine. she's already been released. she is just as dumb as she was before

uhhh-- Darwin??  The media did not make these people do the things they did...  If you want to live under a rock then do it, ignore the lessons learned by others and allow history to repeat itself again and again.

synthetics aren't evil but look at what happens when they are used inappropriately.  Chems designed to study aggressive behavior in lab rats probably shouldn't be freebased by humans.  Sorry if you disagree.
