SULTAN — Police are warning parents about two reported incidents in Sultan in recent weeks where young people overdosed after smoking synthetic marijuana known as “spice.”

Both teens survived, but they suffered seizures, hallucinations and vomiting after smoking a “Black Voodoo” brand of the drug.

Some types of Spice are legal and sold in tobacco shops and minimarts. Other types are illegal.

The substance is not safe for human consumption and has been linked to homicides and suicides in other parts of the country, police say.
