WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- A inexpensive, powerful, and dicey street drug known as K-2 may be to blame for several likely overdoses in downtown White Plains Monday, Jan. 25, according to a report by News12.

Police told News12 that four people who were taken to the hospital may have smoked the synthetic cannabis.

K-2, also known as Spice, consists of chemicals sprayed on cardboard or herbal-based materials.

Supposedly it has the sedating effects of pot, but can spark violent and unpredictable behavior in users, according to police and health officials.
