Is 'Annihilation' Upon Us? New synthetic drug imitates the effects of marijuana, and can induce paranoia, aggression, increased heart rate, unconsciousness, and self-harming

It's like a game of whack-a-mole: every time the law cracks down on a synthetic drug, street chemists seem to bounce back with a new strain. The latest of these "legal highs," known as "Annihilation," has been banned in the UK after landing nine people in the hospital there in the last three months. "This is a catch-up exercise. It is an example of how fast-moving this field is," says Professor Les Iversen, the chairman of the British government's Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs (ACMD). "In three years' time we shall need to do something similar again." Authorities claim this "particularly potent" new synthetic cannabinoid, which imitates the effects of marijuana, can induce a range of horrors, including: paranoia, aggression, increased heart rate, unconsciousness, self-harming and numbness of the legs that causes users to fall down.

To state the obvious, synthetic weed isn't the same substance as marijuana, and it's not even close. Originally developed by John Huffman, an organic chemistry professor at Clemson University, JWH-018, the active cannabinoid in synthetic pot, was originally meant for lab animals. Despite some similarities in smell, the fake stuff can be up to 100 times stronger than the organic variety, and can lead to convulsions, seizures, paranoia, hallucinations and high blood pressure in humans.

"These things are dangerous—anybody who uses them is playing Russian roulette," said Huffman to the Los Angeles Times . "They have profound psychological effects. We never intended them for human consumption."
