ADDU agents search for Crazy Clown

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

South Georgia drug agents are canvassing stores looking for a dangerous strain of synthetic marijuana that sickened Georgians recently.  But so far, they haven't found any.

The G-B-I declared "Crazy Clown" a controlled substance after it tested positive for a synthetic cannabinoid.

Several people were hospitalized in Brunswick after smoking it last month.

Albany Dougherty Drug Unit agents have been looking for the product since the G-B-I sent out a warning.

A.D.D.U. Commander Major Bill Berry said "From what we've checked since the news release and the warning on it, it appears it's been pulled from the shelf from most everywhere we've checked. That is good. We're thankful that people are understanding this is something very dangerous."

Major Berry said they will continue to check stores for "Crazy Clown", but they expect the manufacturers to come up with new names and ways to sell synthetic marijuana substances.
