Three teenage girls were hospitalized in Virginia last weekend after taking an LSD-like synthetic drug. The compound is known by names including 25i, N-Bomb or Smiles.
The girls ranged in age from 13 to 18, according to CBS news. Police say the drug first produces a feeling of euphoria, but then can cause disorientation, violent behavior and death.
People who take the drug experience a fast heart rate, said Police Lt. Tony Matos, Assistant Commander of the narcotics division in Fairfax County, Virginia. “It starts off with a lot of sweating, maybe even some nausea and vomiting. But ultimately, it will lead to very aggressive, violent behavior, and ultimately it will lead to death.”
