Mark Zuckerman reporting on Twitter that Zechry Zinicola has failed a drug test for the second time and is being suspended 50 games.

Zuck adds:
FYI, that's not a PED suspension for Zinicola. It's likely for recreational drug use.

Leaky Basket talked to ZZ and learned that it was some "synthetic marijuana" he tried in winter ball. Hmm, "synthetic." Maybe he thought it was...

K2, Spice, etc.

It was really popular a few months ago before it started getting banned all over the states.

It is.  It's probably worse for you than regular old pot.

I worked in a grocery store for 3 years in the early 2000's, people would come in and take cans of Redi-whip into the bathroom to get freaked up on.
