Syracuse it’s got its own name—Spike.
Synthetic marijuana is a particularly severe problem here, and this week
on the Campbell Conversations host Grant Reeher talks with Steve Featherstone,
a journalist who has recently written a Syracuse-based piece on the drug for
the New York Times Magazine. They discuss what Spike is, the reasons for
its appeal among users, its grave dangers, and why it’s so hard for law
enforcement to combat and control it.
