A desire to escape the emotional turmoil of the teenage years leads some teens to try substances like alcohol, marijuana and even prescription medication. While all of these substances have obstacles to acquisition, there is one dangerous substance that is easily obtained at any age.
According to a recent CNN report, the substance is a type of synthetic weed that is packaged and sold as “potpourri’ at gas stations. While the substance may seem harmless and the buyer may assume it’s safe due to its availability, its use can actually be fatal. For Emily Bauer, it almost cost her the ultimate price – her life.
