1 of 3 D'Iberville High students believed to have smoked spice after lunch taken to hospital


D'IBERVILLE, Mississippi — School officials say one of three D'Iberville High students believed to have smoked spice on their lunch break has been taken to a hospital for treatment.

Harrison County Schools Superintendent Henry Arledge tells The Sun Herald ( a teenager from D'Iberville High was taken to a hospital after Thursday's incident, but the student's condition was not believed to be life-threatening.

Arledge says police are investigating the incident.

Hancock County Sheriff Ricky Adam has said two deaths and several hospitalizations earlier this month may have been related to spice.

Spice is called synthetic marijuana, but authorities say it's far more harmful than marijuana because it's laced with unregulated chemicals that can cause serious health problems or death.
