Spice VS my Brain
I've been smoking spice for about 3 months now and I just barely started to get a mild headache that's lasted about 2 weeks.  I stopped smoking spice 3 days ago but the headache hasn't gone away.  Can smoking the chemical jwh-018 give me a brain tumor?

I would go see a doctor. Any drug used to an excess can cause issues, but whether or not it is a brain tumor or something else can only be determined by a medical professional.

jwh 18 is a synthetic marijuana powder and it's the main ingredient in a smoking blend called spice.

Hi everyone -

If you have a question about the side effects of using a drug, that's fine, but we can not allow posts that encourage illegal activity.  It's also safer for you if you aren't posting on the internet that you are using illegal drugs.

JWH-018 was made illegal on March 1, 2011. If you check the dates for the above posts, the latest one was made in Sept 27, 2010, at which point the drug in question was not illegal. Also, there are still several dozen Spice-style "Smokable Incense" products currently on sale which have similar effects, side-effects, and medical issues regarding their use and abuse so this is (in my opinion) still a relevant topic.

She was talking about other things that were deleted that the poster would know about and you would not. If it had been spice, the entire thread would have been removed.
If you have a response to the questions, then that would be helpful.

Perhaps you should cut back? And see a doctor about the headaches.
