Kathleen Truss was attacked by her grandson, who had smoked the synthetic drug "Spice."
COMSTOCK PARK, Mich. (WZZM) -- An elderly woman in Comstock Park is speaking out against "Spice" after she was injured by her own grandson, who was high on the drug.
She was scratched on the arms then picked up and dropped, injuring her head. Kathleen Truss, 71, says the person responsible was her own grandson.
"I don't hold it against him," says Truss. But she blames something else.
"I asked what he'd done and he said I smoked the spice stuff," says Truss.
Her 18-year-old grandson was high on the synthetic drug called "Spice" while at her house in November.
"He kept saying, 'grandma, don't let me die'," says Truss.
She told him to stay on the floor and immediately called 911.
"I love him so much I don't want him to ever go through that again," says Truss.
On Monday, we showed you how easy Spice is to buy. We also told you about a new bill that would allow state health officials to temporarily ban a dangerous substance before an official law is passed.
"They can be changed so quickly it definitely presents a unique challenge," says Lt. Mike Anderson, Michigan State Police.
Truss says her grandson has recovered after a visit to the hospital -- and he's had plenty more time to think.
"I think he's learned his lesson from it. His main message is to get it off the market, and I don't want anyone to going through what I did," says Truss.
