    A new drug is causing some serious problems in Georgia. According to the Effingham County Sheriff's Office, it’s being referred to as the ‘crazy clown’ drug.

    Police are warning the public about the side effects and dangers after 8 patients were hospitalized over the course of 24 hours. The substance is sold under the names of Herbal Madness Incense or the more common, Crazy Clown.

    Users burn the drug in a small bowl and inhale to get high. A Sherriff’s spokesperson stated “Symptoms are nausea, vomiting, dry mouth, weakness, cardiac problems, but of note some subjects are experiencing paralysis. Several were admitted to intensive care and are on life support. The drug has been sent to the crime lab for testing.”

    The substance is rumored to be sold at convenience stores and small-time smoke shops. The active ingredient currently remains unknown, so the shops selling it could be putting lives in danger, which is increasingly alarming considering the amount of recent hospitalizations. The substance is described as ‘synthetic incense’ and users reportedly become uncontrollably violent while on it.

    Anyone who notices it being sold is asked to contact the sheriff’s department immediately.
