The Washington County Drug Task Force has arrested eight people for their role in selling and distributing synthetic marijuana.
It’s called marijuana on steroids; so powerful that it killed a local boy, and has sent a lot of other kids to the emergency room. It’s being sold illegally in convenience stores and tobacco shops throughout the region.
A 13-year-old boy is fighting for his life at Children’s Hospital. Brandon Rice is on life support after his parents said he smoked a dangerous synthetic drug that mimics marijuana.
