VICE News journalist Nilo Tabrizy and VICE staff writer Allie Conti joined On The Line to discuss "The Dangerous Rise of K2: America's Cheapest High."

K2 — the street name for plant matter sprayed with synthetic chemicals, designed to mimic the effects of marijuana's active ingredient — is currently America's cheapest way to get high. But the drug's dangerous side effects have taken a toll on a wide variety of communities, particularly in New York City.

In "The Dangerous Rise of K2: America's Cheapest High," VICE News gets a glimpse of the challenges New York City is facing with K2 through the lens of volunteer ambulance corps and harm reduction specialists in its outer boroughs.
