I smoked Spice, the synthetic drug like marijuana, 5-10

Customer Question

I smoked Spice, the synthetic drug like marijuana, 5-10 times about 5 years ago. Recently heard on NPR the permenant damage it can do to the brain, etc. Never experienced any ill effects at the time; could it cause any long term damage?

This is Dr. David

if you haven't had any negative effects in 5 years, I would not worry about permanent damage from smoking spice 5 years ago.

don't let your anxiety get out of control with worry about this.

let me know if you have questions.

I've been experiencing Tinnitus for the last 6 months; I appear to have allergies but regardless, would it be safe to say this significantly delayed onset wouldn't be caused by something I did 5 years ago
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.

yes, it is safe to say your symptoms now are not from what you did 5 years ago.
