PORTALES, N.M. (KRQE) - A fourth teen has been hospitalized after smoking spice in Portales.
School officials say it happened Friday just days after three other students started losing control and vomiting on campus.
They too had to be rushed to the hospital and one went into cardiac arrest.
Police say each of the students tested positive for marijuana. They believe the students mixed the pot with spice.
On Monday, the high school hosted a special assembly to address the issue.
“We've got to start making some efforts school-wide to make kids aware that somebody is going to die from this and we are not, none of us are in the business to have kids get hurt or have something bad happen," said Garrick Matthews, Portales High School assistant principal.
School officials also plan to talk to junior high school students.
Staff says two of the four students were back in school Tuesday.
