Nearly 80 People Collapse In Quick Succession From Synthetic Marijuana K2 Overdoses

Nearly 80 people have collapsed in or near a park in the U.S. after suffering overdoses from a batch of synthetic marijuana.

People were seen dropping to the ground unconscious, vomiting and becoming lethargic as they fell ill in New Haven, Connecticut.

As well as paramedics and police, social workers and mental health professionals were sent to New

Haven Green, which is right next to Yale University.

Authorities described the chaotic scenes as 76 people collapsed on Wednesday and another 17 fell ill yesterday.

However, officials are not sure whether Thursday’s overdoses involved the same batch of ‘K2’ synthetic marijuana. No deaths were reported, and most of those brought to local hospitals have been discharged, although some were said to be in a critical condition.

Synthetic marijuana, called ‘spice’ and other names, usually is plant material sprayed with chemicals or other substances that is sold in small, colourful packets. It has been blamed for other mass overdoses across the country.

In May, more than 50 people in Brooklyn, New York, overdosed on K2, none fatally.
