Overdoses linked to synthetic marijuana called "Darkness"
HARRISBURG, Pa. -- The district attorney is investigating and putting out an alert after 20 people overdosed on synthetic marijuana in and around Pennsylvania's state capital city.
Dauphin County District Attorney Ed Marsico says the drug users overdosed over the course of two days last week in the Harrisburg area.
Emergency room doctors are reporting users have experienced advanced stages of delirium and some have had to be revived, including one that wound up in intensive care.
"Don't get started on this stuff. It's just bad news," told CBS affiliate WHP.
Investigators say the synthetic pot in question was packaged with the word "Darkness." They suspect some chemical or other substance may have been added to the synthetic pot.

DEA Compares Home-Grows to Meth Houses
Leave it to the DEA to compare growing your own pot at home to the “meth houses of the 1990s.”
In a puzzling new report, the DEA claims that Colorado’s homegrown pot has led to large-scale operations that risk occupants, neighbors and first responders because of a series of conditions that will probably remind most people of their first apartment or their college dorm room.
In its so-called Intelligence Report for June, the DEA lays out what it regards as the dangers of growing pot at home, which include strong odors, excessive noise from air-conditioning, electrical transformers, heavy traffic, moisture, condensation, mold and loose or entangled electrical wires.
