K2 dangers in Texas

Posted: Updated:
Austin, TX -  Police in the capitol city are investigating the cause of several deaths happening in just less than 24 hours.   

Austin police are investigating what appears to be a mass drug overdose as EMS treated at least 15 people all within one part of the city. Paramedics believe the patients may have overdosed on synthetic marijuana also known as k-2.  
Narcotic detectives are looking into whether or not the cases are related since all of the suspected overdoses happened in downtown Austin. The total number of cases reported is now at 27 in just 3 days. No deaths were reported from this set of people. Austin officials are now concerned on where this drug is coming from.
