From MSN Living:

Here's the first few paragraphs:

TUESDAY, Feb. 12 (HealthDay News) -- Synthetic marijuana products, also known as Spice or K2, are potentially very dangerous for the kidneys, new research suggests.

Case studies analyzed by doctors from the University of Alabama at Birmingham found that this designer drug, which mimics the effects of marijuana, has been directly linked to serious kidney damage.

The researchers suggested that doctors should suspect the use of synthetic marijuana when patients, particularly young adults, have unexplained acute kidney damage. They pointed out these man-made drugs can't be detected in routine drug screenings.
