NSU’s Jim Hall, Ph.D., Comments on the Dangers of Synthetic Drug Use

Epidemiologist and Co-Director of the Center for Applied Research on Substance Abuse and Health Disparities, Jim Hall, Ph.D.

Epidemiologist and Co-Director of the Center for Applied Research on Substance Abuse and Health Disparities, Jim Hall, Ph.D., was quoted on the unsettling side effects of synthetic  drug use despite efforts to crackdown on the spread of the laboratory-made drugs. “The more recent products are the least known, and even more dangerous,” said Hall. “People don’t know what they’re getting. Their favorite brands are changing from one week to the next.”

The article appeared in the Jan. 27th front page edition of the Sun Sentinel and can be accessed online at ‘Synthetic drugs a potent threat.’
