GONZALES - Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy Tony Bacala says the six men who went to the hospital Thursday night after smoking synthetic marijuana aren't saying where they got the substance and haven't been arrested.

Bacala says the six men, who are now out of the hospital, came from Donaldsonville.

Bacala says the men were taken separately to Prevost Memorial Hospital in Donaldsonville, with symptoms ranging from difficulty breathing, anxiety and cramps to at least one person being nonresponsive.

He says the sheriff's office thinks the synthetic marijuana the men smoked all came from the same source.

Synthetic marijuana is typically made of herbs sprayed with synthetic compounds.
