Press Release from the SAU, Goffstown Police Dept. and Goffstown Fire Dept.:

It is with great concern that we notify parents of Goffstown High School students of an emerging pattern we have observed.  Over the past two weeks, GHS has experienced two occasions of students suspected of using synthetic marijuana and needing acute medical care as a result.

Synthetic marijuana (typically packaged as incense) has created a new and very concerning challenge for communities across the country.   “Parents are largely unaware of this new problem.  Kids can buy these dangerous, unregulated substances at the local convenience store,” remarked Brian Balke, Superintendent of Schools.

Adolescents are also using e-cigarettes, so-called ‘hookah pens’, and electronic vaporizers that charge through a USB port to ingest there substances.  There are also versions of ‘synthetic marijuana’ that come in liquid forms.
