WICHITA, Kan. - A new drug is being used in Wichita schools, and it’s killing kids across the country. It’s called “N-bomb,” or “smiles.” KAKE News reports that it started at Heights High School earlier this week when a student went to the school resource officer, tipping him off to students using the deadly new drug.
“N-bomb,” “smiles,” “25-I” – it’s a new synthetic drug being sold as LSD. But the effects are stronger and deadly, and Wichita police say it has made its way to our schools.
A student’s tip led police to a duplex near East Harry and Hillside. Investigators arrested three people, including Raul Gonales from California, and Angel Lopez. Inside the home, police found meth, guns, thousands of dollars in cash, and the drug, N-bomb.
The drug has killed dozens of teens across the country, including a 14-year-old from Kansas City two weeks ago.
“It's a synthetic drug that's coming on the scene--a potentially harmful drug,” said Wichita Police Lt. Doug Nolte. “Kids are taking it and not understanding what it can do to you."
Police say they are seeking federal charges in this case. In the meantime, they are asking parents to talk to their students about the situation.
