Spiked CBD illnesses not isolated to Utah
In fact, the vapes were spiked with dangerous synthetic marijuana. And the problem extends beyond Utah.
An Associated Press investigation found spiked vapes were available around the country, as some operators capitalize on the CBD boom by substituting a cheap street drug for the real thing.
That practice has sent dozens of people nationwide to emergency rooms. Unlike real CBD, synthetic marijuana gives an intense high.
In all, lab testing shows spiked vapes or edible products marketed as CBD in at least 13 states.
Industry representatives acknowledge spiking is an issue, but say many companies are reputable.
