New Haven, Conn. Is Struggling With A Rash Of K2 Overdoses

The city of New Haven, Connecticut, has been struggling with a string of synthetic marijuana overdoses, and now police think they've arrested some of the people responsible. 

Police arrested two people they believe are involved — including a 53-year-old man who's been charged with possession with intent to sell. Investigators say he had 32 bags of the drug K2 in his home. 

Emergency crews responded to over 100 calls in one week of people needing to go to the hospital. Though they did say not all of those calls were overdoses. 

Police said there's no way to know if this string of overdoses is over. But they released photos of the suspects and the drugs in hopes that the community would take note of any potentially dangerous drugs in their possession.
