In January of this year this woman who we’ll call Lisa lost her mother.

“I was four months pregnant,” Lisa said. “And in February I lost my baby.”

Two months later Lisa says her boyfriend left her.

“That just totally threw me off the edge,” she said.

So when a friend offered her some Kush Lisa’s reaction was what the heck why not.

“That’s all it took for me to get hooked,” Lisa said. “Just one smoke and that’s it.”

Lisa says she’s smoked marijuana before, and says smoking Kush is nothing like smoking pot.
She says after smoking Kush for two months she had to admit herself into a psychiatric hospital.

“Every store that I’ve gone to it’s easy to buy,” Lisa said. “The person who has already bought it took me and that’s all it took for me to be able to keep on going and buying it.”

Lisa says she bought it at a store in June that was the subject of Thursday’s news conference about a big Kush crackdown.

“I’ve never seen a drug so easy to buy,” she said. “It’s harder to buy weed really than the synthetic drug.

Lisa says she and others would be waiting at seven in the morning for the store to open.

“It’s very scary I thought I was going to die so many times but I still wouldn’t care I would still do it,” Lisa said. “It’s so dangerous please don’t do this drug.”
