In 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.
