She and her friends had bought the fake marijuana from a local gas station in December. Emily complained of a shooting headache just 15 minutes after she had smoked it and felt she was going to pass out.

She suffered many strokes that sent her into a psychotic state and police had to be called to control her. She began to suffer violent hallucinations and tried to hurt herself many times.

Emily suffered many seizures which was a result of many strokes in her brain.

The pressure inside Emily's brain was so high that doctors had to drill a hole in her skull to enable some relief. More than 70% of her brain is dead and she may not be able to recognize her family or even be able to walk again.

This story should be a wake up call for all those who resort to drugs, especially fake ones. Beware of the risks of smoking synthetic marijuana, also known as spice.
