Police located Leslie Anne Alvey, 26, of California, inside a vehicle in the driveway of the residence. Alvey was suffering from an overdose of K2 (synthetic marijuana).

      K2 is VERY dangerous,people have been hospitalized from using it. It is sold as synthetic “weed”, but actually has nothing in common with marijuana. Marijuana is safer; no doubt.

      People have a lot of issues with K2. It can also cause rapid heart rate and violent behavior. It’s not safe at all.

      Another POS so-called mother! No matter if it was synthetic pot, or heroin, leaving a child on the floor while you do your drugs is totally unacceptable. Another case of a parent who chooses drugs over their children.

        Perhaps CDS will come out and write a safety plan or a parenting plan for her. When they drop it off they can clean her house for her!

    Take the kid away and give it a chance at a good life. The mother might be a lost cause but that doesn’t mean the kid should have to suffer anymore then it already has.

      Haha. Don’t worry. She will be in and out of the justice system in time to meet up with her dealer for dinner with a nice spot on the floor for the baby… again!

        Unfortunately, there is some truth to your statement.

    It isnt weed.. K2 is some fake non sense that says incense on the container and not for human consumption.. It is sold in liquor stores in the area and other convenient stores
