In a continuing series on synthetic drug use in Abilene, a recovering addict at a local recovery program speaks out about his experience with spice. He says it was easier and the high was different, but he warns others as to why they shouldn't use it.

Calvin McCormick says it caused him to feel overwhelmingly lazy all the time, but he couldn't stop using it. And he says that instead of looking down on those who use the drugs, the community should come together and help those that struggle with the addiction.
