Spice is made by mixing chemicals, known as Synthetic Cannabinoid Receptor Agonists - SCRAs for short - with chopped-up leaves and herbs.SCRAs are man-made chemicals, created in a lab, in contrast to the chemicals in cannabis, which occur naturally.
Spice is normally smoked and mimics the effects of cannabis.
There are hundreds of different SCRAs. All vary in strength and toxicity.
Many cannabinoids were legal in the United Kingdom until December 2009, when they were classified as Class B drugs.
