4 Abilene teenagers found in alley, 3 taken to hospital after smoking synthetic drug

ABILENE, Texas - Abilene police responded to the area of North 10th and Mockingbird streets early this morning to reports of an injured subject.

When police arrived they noticed four teenagers hanging out in an alley. They were reportedly acting suspicious and under the influence.

After searching the suspects, officers discovered a pipe used to smoke cannabis along with a plastic bag containing a number of pills in their possession. According to police, the teenagers were smoking a synthetic marijuana known as K-2.

Three of the teenagers were taken to Hendrick Medical Center for further observation.

"It's just something they see as legal. They think it's no big deal, I guess, considered a legal high. So they're doing it and they're learning the hard way about the adverse reactions," said Abilene Police officer Lance Vines.

No word yet if they will be charged.
