Concern Turning to Homemade Spice

first_imgFacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享As of 2011, every state in the union has laws banning the sale of synthetic marijuana and so-called “bath salts.” But ABC’s Jim Ryan says concern is now turning to homemade alternatives… Ryan: “Before catch-all statutes were enacted, the producers of synthetic drugs like K2 would simply make small chemical modifications in their products to stay ahead of the law. Now: (A lot of these are now being produced by amateur chemists in their own labs in their garage.) Mark Woodward of the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics says that makes the drugs even more dangerous: (Kids are ending up in the hospital with kidney failure, high blood pressure, their hearts racing, hallucinating.) Last week, a Louisiana teenager died after using synthetic marijuana. The man who’s thought to have given it to him is charged with second-degree murder. Jim Ryan, ABC News.”last_img read more

‘Riverdale’ will address Luke Perry’s death, says executive producer

first_imgMarc Hom/The CW (LOS ANGELES) — Two weeks after Luke Perry’s untimely death from a stroke at age 52, Riverdale‘s executive producer says the actor’s death will be addressed on the show.  They’re just not yet quite certain how. At an Academy of Television Arts & Sciences event for the CW’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina in Los Angeles on Sunday, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa told Entertainment Tonight, “You know, honestly, we are I think all still in shock and are all still processing and grieving.  We know that we have to address it in some way, but we’re giving ourselves a little bit of time and space before we figure out the best way to honor him.”Perry played Archie’s father, Fred Andrews, on Riverdale.“Luke was, is, and will always be a big part of Riverdale,” says Aguirre-Sacasa. “We’re kind of a family and when a loss like this happens, you carry it always. It changes and it hopefully becomes a little less painful as time goes by, but you’re changed.”“When I was with the crew, I said, ‘It will never be the same,’ and that’s true because Luke was such a part of the show,” he continued. “There are still a few more episodes that have Luke in them, so we’re glad to share those.”Adds Aguirre-Sacasa, “His spirit — which was so generous and wise and vivacious — we hope will infuse every episode, so in my mind, every episode for the rest of time on Riverdale will have a bit of Luke in it.”Riverdale airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET on the CW.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
