Eight students hospitalized; police believe marijuana is the cause
Saturday night and early Sunday morning, eight students were sent to the hospital after University Police (UPD) responded to multiple medical emergencies involving students suspected to be smoking marijuana.
UB Spokesperson John Della Contrada said the students were released from the hospital this morning.
In a UB Alert, UPD said the victims experienced trouble breathing, dizziness, nausea and general disorientation. The notice explained it is possible that the illegal drugs were mixed with other substances unknown to the user, causing unexpected symptoms.
"This warning is provided so that you may take whatever action is deemed necessary for your safety," the alert stated. "Members of the community are urged to be vigilant at all times. Report any unusual circumstances or suspicious persons and activities to the University Police as soon as possible."
