As Demi Moore‘s Fuck You, Ashton Kutcher Drug Binge and Nitrous Extravaganza continues to unfold, we now know that Rumer was there the whole time, and that the two were most likely smoking something called K2 Spice and not salvia because apparently I’m the only one who still drinks all his anger and frustration into a ball of stress that I bottle up inside me until it becomes cancer. To each his own. Via Wikipedia:
Synthetic cannabis is a psychoactive herbal and chemical product that, when consumed, mimics the effects of cannabis. It is best known by the brand names K2 and Spice, both of which have largely become genericized 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.) A type of synthetic cannabis sold in Australasia [Ed. Note: Eh?] is known as Kronic.
Research on the safety of synthetic cannabis is only now becoming available. Initial studies are focused on the role of synthetic cannabis and psychosis. It seems likely that synthetic cannabis can precipitate psychosis and in some cases it is prolonged. These studies suggest that synthetic cannabinoid intoxication is associated with acute psychosis, worsening of previously stable psychotic disorders, and also may have the ability to trigger a chronic (long-term) psychotic disorder among vulnerable individuals such as those with a family history of mental illness.
Of course, my favorite part of the Demi meltdown is her friends immediately stepping forward to make sure everyone knows this wasn’t about Ashton Kutcher even if that involves basically saying she’s been a drug addict way before she met him. “So, wait, that asshole actually thinks this is about him just because he made her feel old as dirt by banging 20-year-olds? Oh, no no no no. You tell that egotistical prick she’s been freebasing paprika since before he was even born. Shit, Bruce Willis used to come home and find her mainlining Old Bay seasoning for half the 90s, so Mr. Trucker Hat can go eat an entire dick.”
