Disturbing reports of Demi Moore's drug use catalyzed by her breakup with Ashton Kutcher surfaced the other day, and now the recording of the 911 call has been released. On the call, you can hear one of Demi's friends telling the 911 dispatcher she smoked something "similar to incense" and that it was "not marijuana." The unidentified woman describes Demi as burning up, convulsing periodically, and breathing irregularly, but still responding by squeezing her hand. Us Weekly asked a drug expert what the drug could have been.
One potential guess could be synthetic cannabis. Known as "K2," "Spice" or "herbal incense," it's a blend of herbs, spices and a synthetic compound similar to THC, the psychoactive ingredients in marijuana.
"It's a relaxed high," Dr. John Sharp, MD, faculty member of Harvard Medical School explained to Us Weekly Friday. "People who aren't used to it can feel uncomfortable and self-conscious. Others feel relaxed physically," added Dr. Sharp, a psychiatrist who has worked in celebrity rehab centers.
Medical studies suggest the drug could cause psychosis, heard attacks, and convulsions, while this Dr. Sharp says, "We see a lot of emergency room visits related to spice." Demi was seen partying recently, reportedly drinking twelve cans of Redbull in one night. Oh, Demi!
We hope she gets well soon.
