Synthetic Cannabinoid Illnesses in NH - August 2014

New Hampshire Governor Maggie Hassan has issued a state of emergency after a rash of overdoses on synthetic cannabinoids. On Monday night in Manchester, NH, there were 17-25 reported illnesses. There were 9 reported synthetic cannabinoid-related illnesses on Tuesday night. There have been at least 3 illnesses in Concord, NH in the last 24 hours.

Some of these incidents were allegedly associated with a bubblegum flavored herbal incense product named "Smacked!". Two other products named in the press release were "Crazy Monkey" and "Green Giant", though it was noted they weren't involved in the illnesses. The identification of any specific synthetic cannabinoids have not been confirmed.

As always, stay safe.
