Fairfield Ludlowe Student Found with Synthetic Pot

Police are trying to determine whether or not the brand of the substance is legal.

Police are investigating a report of a Fairfield Ludlowe High School student carrying synthetic marijuana at school.

At the time of the report, officers had not determined whether or not the substance was illegal.

Police were called to the school after a security officer noticed a 15-year-old male student with the plant-like substance. The student had reportedly been sent to the school nurse for "drug-like" symptoms, department spokesperson Sgt. Sue Lussier said.

The juvenile admitted to smoking the synthetic pot, police said. Another teen had purchased the substance -- a brand called Blueberry Mamba -- from a variety store in Bridgeport and had given it to the sick juvenile, according to the report.

Connecticut passed regulations in early 2012 that make the sale of products containing certain chemicals often found in synthetic marijuana illegal. Police are trying to determine whether Blueberry Mamba falls under those regulations.
