When Vinnie decided he wanted to hang out with some of his friends at the local high school baseball field in the evening, he would later survive to tell everyone, including his parents, he never would, EVER, do that again!
What did Vinnie do?
He took a ‘hit’ off a joint, but what Vinnie didn’t know was that joint wasn’t just marijuana, it was a mixture of incense, tobacco, and who “knows what”! What is known on the street as ‘legal’ could of killed him once consumed in his system. One leaf is all it will take, and that one leaf is the size of a tip of a pink fingernail that will have anyone take a puff spin out of control. Houston criminal defense attorney Tonya D. Jones has represented numerous persons arrested for the possession of synthetic drugs and real drugs.

Was Vinnie in a matrix?
You see, Vinnie ended nude on that baseball field running in circles and rapidly. He then ended up in the hospital because during that horrible episode, he decided to jump off from the bleachers (3 stories high!) and landed flat on his body, with his body convulsing in seizures, vomiting, and almost dead from swallowing his vomit. Not only was he nude, but his friends called 911 and left him there.
Disoriented with a tube in his mouth because he stopped breathing that evening, but only for a bit, he survived that horrendous and horrible nightmarish scene at the field where medics had to revive him because he OD’d on the synthetic drug “Kush” in Houston, Texas.
Reason for smoking Kush
There are many reasons for smoking this synthetic drug. For most, it’s too get high and do not want to get the chemicals of marijuana in their bloodstream. Also, there may be hundreds of criminals on probation and even parole who don’t want to test positive for it. Additionally, some individuals may get drug tested for work or need a job and may have to be drug tested, therefore, smoking this will help them get the high, plus allow them to pass their drug test.
All in all, smoking this synthetic drug today is considered Russian Roulette according to many Texas politicians and public servants, as well as victims of the drug.
Legal drugs (aka ‘fake drugs’)
Some fake drugs are really called ‘synthetic’ or ‘legal’ on the streets. In fact, no matter what part of the region you live at in the world, it’s on the ‘streets’ being sold to whomever, and whenever, for a cheap price, thinking it will be a cheap high. Although, it isn’t “legal” anymore because of the chemicals it consists of. Sold in small packets, it is medically called a “cannabinoid,” which contains the mimic marijuana drug of THC. Yet, this isn’t what it is, it’s man-made and has the combination of plant materials much like potpourri.
October 8, 2014 is when the city council passed “a sweeping ban” on it. The fact that Kush is marketed as “potpourri” and sold in certain neighborhood stores is tremendously dangerous for those who do consume it. The Houston Forensic Science Center Lab identify this particular drug with more than 12 various chemical elements used in Kush (also known as Spice, K2, and Bling, Bling Monkey). In 2014, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol claimed the discovery of one new compound made in synthetic marijuana weekly have been discovered.
That was 3 years ago!
Synthetic Drugs and Texas Law
Today, it’s probably doubled, even more, it’s probably tripled in compounds or element-wise. Dangerous as it sounds, it is! It is now considered a Penalty Group 2-A of the Texas Controlled Substances Act. Consequently, synthetic marijuana is now on the Texas Health and Safety Code 481.1031. Finally, for those who ever caught with this, in the Lone Star State, can in Texas leave you in prison because it is Class B Misdemeanor all the way up to 1st Degree Felony.
Defined by Chapter 12 of the Texas Penal Code, a criminal, and even an innocent individual, caught with it will more than likely get a Class B misdemeanor drug possession offense. This is punishable with jail time of up to 180 days and a fine of up to $2,000. It can go up to a punishable sentence in State Jail with a Felony drug possession and a fine which can go up to $10,000. Consequently, if a criminal gets a 1st Degree Felony drug possession offense with this it’s punishable by prison sentence ranging from 5 to 99 years or life, including a fine of up to $50,000!
So, it’s best to say “No!” to Kush (aka Russian Roulette).
