'Anderson Live' Explores Drug Trend 'Smiles'
Anderson and co-host Lisa Ling explored a dangerous new drug trend called "Smiles," a synthetic drug with unusual and unpredictable side effects, including hallucinations, erratic behavior and even death.
Anderson speaks with Kirk, a teen who videotaped himself taking "Smiles" before posting it online to educate others before they take it. Kirk explains, "The reason I make the videos is to inform others about the proper dosages and so they know what they're getting."
Debbie, a mom who recently lost her son Christian, 18, to "Smiles," says she thinks what Kirk is doing is "horrible." (Christian's photo is below.)
Elijah, a 17-year-old who also took "Smiles," died the day after Christian.
