Huge Number Of People Inexplicably Collapse, Authorities Speechless Until They Realize One Chilling Detail

Two mass synthetic marijuana overdoses occurred in Los Angeles’ Skid Row area causing more than 30 people to be hospitalized after smoking a bad batch of Spice.

“We don't have toxicological confirmation, but it's presumably Spice, which is a synthetic type of cannabis or marijuana,” said Dr Marc Eckstein, the Los Angeles Fire Department medical director and EMS bureau commander, according to MailOnline.

Those who were examined at the scene of one of the overdoses showed symptoms of combative behavior, altered mental states and sometimes seizures. Other symptoms of synthetic marijuana include accelerated heart rates, excessive sweating, poor coordination, slurred speech and vomiting.

“And of course, because it's synthetic, nobody for sure knows what active ingredients are in there, the strength is variable,” said Eckstein.The drug is noted to be widely used by the homeless population on Skid Row since one joint only costs $1.

Pam Walls, who works at the Downtown Women’s Center in Skid Row, said that the batch that sickened everyone was '100 times more potent' than normal. A similar mass overdose also recently occurred in Brooklyn.

“People just kept showing up and then quickly dropping to the ground, flopping over hoods of cars, or crumpling onto the sidewalk,” neighbor Lindsay Foehrenbach told MailOnline. “They all seemed oblivious to their surroundings and just couldn't stay on their feet.”
