A mum whose 15-year-old girl was in a coma after taking Spice has called it a “murder weapon”.
Sharon took Spice and two other types of synthetic cannabis at a party.
Hours later she collapsed at home, convulsing and bleeding from the mouth.
She was taken to hospital and put in an induced coma after her heart stopped twice.
Doctors gave her a 10 per cent survival chance.
Sharon was brought out of the coma after two days.
But Cheryl, 35, of Morecambe, Lancs, said: “No parent should have to see what I’ve seen.
“I planned her funeral while I sat and watched her in hospital.
“We were lucky. Lots of young people haven’t been.
“Spice is a murder weapon and people who are selling it are no better than murderers. They know it could kill somebody.”
McDonald’s worker Cheryl, a mum-of-two, said Sharon was recovering at home within a week of the ordeal.

But she added Sharon, now 16, was still suffering from the mental effects, more than a year on.
Cheryl said: “She has depression, low self-esteem and she is angry all the time.”
She said the Government’s blanket ban on former legal highs has been ineffective.
She said: “They are still too easy to obtain and probably more dangerous than heroin.
“The Tories need to act. I’d walk through he Commons shouting about it to make it happen.”
