Eight SUNY at Buffalo students were reported by campus police to have gone to local hospitals over the weekend for treatment of breathing and other problems that may have been caused by smoking marijuana laced with a synthetic marijuana known as Spice or K2.

The substance is known to cause a number of adverse reactions including agitation and hallucinations. All of the students were discharged from the hospitals after they were treated. Neither University of Buffalo police spokesmen nor the school’s media staff was available late Tuesday to comment on the situation.
