Two high school students were hospitalized this week after smoking a mix of dried herbs that is similar to marijuana.
The teens smoked K2, a substance that is laced with chemicals and is intended to mimic the effects of marijuana.
One of the teens also admitted taking Xanax and roxycodone before falling ill. Their medical conditions were not known Thursday, but they are expected to make full recoveries.
The Sheriff’s Office issued a warning to parents about the effects of K2, which is usually sold over the Internet or at smoke shops.
The package is labeled “incense” and is marked “not for human consumption,” the Sheriff’s Office says.
