Law enforcement is again issuing a warning about the use of synthetic drugs after eleven people were hospitalized in Connecticut on Sunday. They had taken synthetic drugs known as Molly or N-Bomb. Douglas County Deputy Jason Stehlick is a Task Force officer for the Drug Enforcement Administration and says it is not an east coast problem.
The DEA Task Force first discovered N-Bomb in the metro area last summer. Deputy Stehlick says both N-Bomb and Molly are classified as psychedelic drugs.
N-Bomb is similar to LSD and found on blotter paper that is taken orally. Increases heart rate, affects respiration, increases body temperature and causes hallucinations. He says Molly causes similar symptoms.
Deputy Stehlick says even if legislation is passed banning the contents of some of these synthetic drugs makers develop another “recipe” to make it legal. Some of these synthetic drugs have been sold over the counter at convenience stores around the country.
