-AUDITION COPY:

Listen up New York… there’s a new drug trying to destroy the young generation.  It’s called synthetics.  So, some guy thought it be a good idea to spray poison on some herbs and then sell it to you.  No it’s not Marijuana….it goes by the name of K2.  It causes hallucinations, rapid heart-beat, vomiting, seizures.  And it can kill you the first time you smoke it.  Young New Yorkers are saying NO to synthetics.  And if you want a fight… you got one.  We don’t want you here.  Not today, not tomorrow, not ever!  Young New Yorkers are saying NO to synthetics.
