(Apirl 21, 2014) – The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office would like Loudoun County residents to be aware of the emergence of a narcotic that has been linked to several medical emergencies in Loudoun County in the last month.
This narcotic is believed to be 25i which is commonly referred to as “LSD”, “smiles” or “N-bomb”. This drug mimics the appearance of LSD as it is found to be soaked on small squares of blotter paper making for easier distribution/dosage.
The drug can also be ingested in powder form or injected.
In one recent case, Loudoun County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a residence on April 14th in the Lansdowne area where three teenagers were acting disorderly. Deputies found one female who was yelling incoherently and was kicking the deputies as they tried to assist her. Two other females were located inside the home and were acting erratically. All three teenagers were taken to a local hospital. One of the teens was later taken to Inova Fairfax Hospital for further treatment. All three have since been treated and released. It is believed the three took 25i.
“25i can be dangerous, even at small dosages,” said Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman. “This drug can cause violent behavior, disorientation, seizures and death.”
25I-NBOMe (25i) was classified as a Schedule I controlled substance in 2013.
Anyone coming into contact with the drug should use caution when handling it and contact the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office immediately by calling 703-777-1021.
