A male friend of Demi’s made the 911 call and was heard to say,
“She smoked something, it’s not marijuana, it’s similar to incense. She seems to be having convulsions.”
It is most likely that the actress had smoked K2 Spice, which WebMD says is a “currently legal herbal incense product spiked with powerful designer drugs” that don’t show up in tests.”
The substance is currently under investigation by the Drug Enforcement Agency but remains legal.
Dr. Phil Dembo, a drugs specialist who has not treated Moore, said it sounded like K2 Spice.
“The problem with synthetics of any kind is they can cause anxiety or depression and cause panic or hyperventilation type of experience. There is racing of your body and those things chemically take you over.”
K2 Spice contains research chemicals called synthetic cannabinoids but do not contain any cannabis (marijuana).
Dr. Dembo said Demi’s convulsions could have been a result of smoking the substance. They have been known to induce increased anxiety, panic attacks, heart palpitations, respiratory complications, aggression, mood swings, altered perception, and paranoia.”
Demi Moore was rushed by an ambulance to the hospital following her seizure. She has been released and is planning to seek help for anorexia and addiction.
