BRANCH COUNTY, Mich. — Three teenagers were taken to the hospital after using K2 synthetic marijuana Friday in Branch County.

At 4:20 p.m. Friday, while driving southwest of Coldwater a female motorist spotted a male teen walking alongside the roadway in the cold weather wearing shorts, a T-shirt and no shoes while acting strangely. She called 9-1-1.

The teen and two of his friends — boys aged 14 and 15 — all were taken to the hospital. Michigan State Police troopers determined that they apparently had been using K2 synthetic marijuana.

The Michigan State Police told FOX 17 NEWS that the case will be turned over to juvenile court.
