Abstract

Synthetic cannabinoids and cathinones have become drugs of abuse for adolescents and young adults. These substances mimic the eff ects of marijuana and amphetamines and are easily available, marketed as safe to use, and undetectable by standard drug tests. Research suggests that there is potential for great harm with chronic use.
