“Anytime we have a drug that is new, that is unknown, there are more issues than anybody knows about,” said Roder. “So, that’s a big concern for us as a police department and it should be a big concern for any community, just to make sure that we don’t have people that are experimenting with these unknowns.”

A 17-year-old student has been charged with a felony for possessing the drug with intent to deliver.
