Doctors report more overdoses likely linked to K2 in Dallas

Posted: Updated:
Doctors are reporting dozens of new overdoses possibly linked to synthetic drugs like K2.

Baylor Medical Center in Dallas had as many as 44 cases in the last five days -- nearly half the total for an entire month.

Parkland Hospital reports 53 overdoses in May, with 24 of them from this past weekend.

Doctors say the symptoms are consistent with K2, a synthetic marijuana.

No deaths have been reported, but some patients have been so agitated they've had to be restrained while being treated at hospitals.

Dallas police are investigating where the potential bad batch of drugs came from.
