Synthetic 'N-bomb' Drug Raises Concern in Arizona

"That is certainly a possibility, based on what witnesses are telling us — that either this drug is involved, some variant of that," said Sgt. Mark Clark, a Scottsdale (Ariz.) PD spokesman. "Certainly, when anyone becomes deceased from a possibility of any of these new drugs that are out there, we are obviously concerned."
