Two Mitchell teenagers have been hospitalized after having adverse medical reactions to a drug they were told was LSD.
The Mitchell Department of Public Safety is investigating, but in a statement issued Friday afternoon said the type of drug actually taken by the two minors remains unknown.
The drug is described as being a white, aspirin-sized pill with no identifiable markings, and the statement says investigators believe more teenagers may have been given or sold the drug, which seems to cause hallucinations, vomiting, increased heart rate, disjointed thought process and strange behavior.
The investigation is described as ongoing, and in its statement, the Mitchell Police Division asks parents to be on the lookout for any strange behavior in their children.
