THOMASVILLE — Recently, Grady County Sheriff’s Office deputies found a young woman in her home suffering from paranoia and seeing things that weren’t there.
According to Sheriff Harry Young, there has been a steady uptick in similar calls caused by people using spice.
Young said spice is “a bad, bad, dangerous drug that drives users out of their mind.”
According to Young, its use has been on the increase in the last six or seven months in Grady County.
A Thomas County’s Narcotics and Vice Division spokesperson agrees. He said, “These cases have been dramatically increasing.”
The spokesman said the drug’s availability and the euphoric feeling people experience is pushing this increase.
