Over 30 people hospitalized after O.D. on synthetic marijuana

Authorities say more than 30 people have overdosed from suspected synthetic marijuana at or near a Connecticut city park.
No deaths have been reported, but officials say two people had life-threatening symptoms.
Officials say people overdosed at the New Haven Green, close to the prestigious Yale University.
Some overdoses were reported Tuesday night but the majority fell ill shortly after 8am on Wednesday.
Rick Fontana, director of emergency operations for New Haven said some overdoses were 'in multiples of 4-6 at a time.'
Fontana said the city's 911 center started receiving calls just after 8am about possible overdoses on the green.

EMS personnel found individuals suffering from 'a multitude of signs and symptoms ranging from vomiting, hallucinating, high blood pressure, shallow breathing, semi-conscious and unconscious states,' he said in an email to CBS News.
'Two individuals had life-threatening symptoms, and the others had non-life-threatening symptoms,' he said.
Sandy Bogucki, EMS medical director in New Haven, said they heard from people on the green Wednesday morning that it 'potentially' contained PCP and that some of the reactions of the patients in the emergency department suggest an opioid was involved.
The overdoses took place in the shadow of the prestigious Yale University whose campus is across the street from the park.
