NH officials mount battle against 'Spice'
"What we're hearing from our front-line providers is this product causes severe altered mental status and often seizures," she said.
Assistant Police Chief Nick Willard said one man was found in a city park on all fours, shoveling dirt and grass into his mouth. As officers were talking with him, he suddenly lurched forward and fell unconscious.
In Manchester, the city clerk's office revoked the business licenses of three convenience stores that allegedly were selling the suspect products, blamed for nearly 50 adverse reactions. At least one store owner is challenging that closure in court.
Health authorities are also working with the Poison Control Center, both for advice about the poisoning component of the emergency and to find out if it has received reports from emergency rooms or individuals about adverse reactions.
Current state law bars the sale of a "controlled drug analog," defined as "a substance that has a chemical structure substantially similar to that of a controlled drug and that was specifically designed to produce an effect substantially similar to that of a controlled drug."
The Legislature did create a study committee to look into how to regulate and control synthetic drugs. That group will meet on Aug. 27.
