Lance Dyer lost his son, Dakota, to synthetic drugs a year ago. Now, a crusader against synthetic marijuana and drugs that masquerade as both bath salts and potpourri, he says he has a new ally: a kit that tests for most types of designer drugs.
“You put a urine sample on the end of it and wait for two or three minutes,” Dyer explained. At the end of that time, the test indicates the presence of any one of up to 94-percent of the chemicals that are found in synthetic drugs.
It is called the K2D2 from Affinton (www.affiniton.com, Facebook: Affiniton, LLC), a Pennsylvania company that specializes in drug detection. The kit costs less than $8.00. Dyer said it has only been on the market since March 1, but he has already seen it in action.
“We had a couple of parents call us up early Saturday morning. Their boy was hallucinating, delusional. I was up there in three hours,” Dyer said. “The father had spent $200 on test kits and they all came back negative. We got a urine sample and tested it with this K2D2. In two minutes, it tested positive for synthetic marijuana.”
Dyer said the boy was subsequently treated at a nearby emergency room.
