It is the cities that deny they have a problem that have the most problems. West Melbourne city officials boast of a low crime rate, but the reality is, there are a lot of problems in West Melbourne. Gangs, drugs, crime, etc.
I have a voice recording tape of a young adult telling me where and how to buy K2 at stores in West Melbourne. If they really wanted to stop the drug problems in a specific area, they could. Sadly, I think it is easier for law enforcement officials to deny a problem then fix it. That is so sad because the citizens of West Melbourne suffer.
As West Melbourne grows the police department needs to stay on top of this problem. Synthetic cannabis is a psychoactive designer drug derived from natural herbs sprayed with synthetic chemicals that, when consumed, allegedly mimic the effects of cannabis. It is best known by the brand names K2 and Spice, both of which have largely become generalized trademarks used to refer to any synthetic cannabis product. (It is also for this reason that synthetic cannabis is often referred to as spice product, due to the latter.) There is controversy among calling Spice and K2 synthetic cannabis and is considered by some to be a misnomer, because the ingredients contained in these products are mimics, not copies of THC. Whatever you want to call it, it is dangerous. Young people get seizure, pass-out, and it has lasting effects.
Young people use it because it is undetectable by the standard drug test you buy at a store. (In the very near future the Reality Check Program will have K2 test on our website for sale)
The Reality Check Program deals with topics like this. Sadly, we tried to work with the West Melbourne police department and they deny there are any problems. Understanding you have a problem is the first step in fixing the problem. Denial is all about ego and the West Melbourne police department needs to put their egos in check and get help.
