BBC News today reported that two teenagers collapsed after smoking what is believed to be synthetic cannabis from an e-cigarette.
The pair, aged 14 and 15, were taken to Carlisle’s Cumberland Infirmary for treatment.
Cumbria Police later executed a warrant at a shop in the city and seized a number of items.
They also arrested a man, 55, and a 52-year-old woman, who are being held on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of a Class B drug.
Substances that are sold as ‘legal highs’ may contain compounds that are illegal to buy or sell and just because they are sold as ‘legal’ does not mean that they are safe.
