Round Table with US Attorney's Office about the Rise of K2 in DC
Over the past few weeks, DC has experienced multiple deaths and hundreds of overdoses related to “K2.” We have seen K2 in our neighborhood and it has been a factor in a few incidents.
Join Assistant US Attorney Trena Carrington, law enforcement officials, and the Golden Triangle BID to learn more about the drug, indicators of use, and what to do should you encounter someone under the influence. Information presented at this gathering will be of particular value to ground floor retailers and restaurants, security managers, and front line staff.
Like many types of synthetic marijuana, K2 is mixture of marijuana and a variety of man-made psychoactive chemicals. These combinations can cause violent behavior and life-threatening medical conditions after only one use, similar to the affects of PCP. In addition, because it is very inexpensive, it is becoming the drug of choice for marijuana users.
10:00 – 10:45 a.m.
