Two in Edmond hospitalized after using synthetic drugs
Two people have overdosed on synthetic drugs in Edmond. A new law pertaining to synthetic drugs goes into effect Nov. 1.
EDMOND — A 20-year-old man remained in a hospital intensive care unit Wednesday as Edmond police continued to investigate two overdoses from synthetic drugs.
The victim, who police would not identify, was taken to the hospital after friends called 911 on Thursday.
The friends told police they had been snorting “Molly,” a pure form of Ecstasy, said Jennifer Monroe, Edmond police spokeswoman.
Monroe said Molly is commonly used to describe Ecstacy in a powder form. It comes in the form of a capsule that users break open and snort.
Another overdose was reported on Sept. 27, after officers were sent out on a report of a man trying to get inside an apartment at 801 N Kelly.
“When our officers arrived they found an 18-year-old male acting irrationally in a field behind the complex,” Monroe said. Police used a Taser to get the man under control.
The man was identified as Colton Beard, 18, of Edmond. He was taken to a hospital for treatment of what was believed to be Molly.
Investigators have taken information to the district attorney asking for charges to be filed against the couple who lived at the apartment, and a friend. No charges had been filed Wednesday.
