Police at Southampton today renewed their warning about the use of psycho-active substances. The warning comes after a 16-year-old boy collapsed and started fitting at his home after smoking White Widow, a substance he bought on the internet.
At midday Friday, January 3, he was taken by ambulance to Southampton General Hospital, where he has recovered, but is being kept in for 24 hours of observation. White Widow looks like herbal cannabis, but does not smell like the drug.
Inspector Phil Lamb said: “Young people and adults must make themselves aware of the health risks involved in using such psycho-active substances. “Parents, too, must be aware and vigilant. At the very least, they should make themselves aware of the dangers and talk to their children about them.”
