LSD lands one student in hospital


An NMU student was hospitalized yesterday evening after exhibiting “extremely violent behavior” triggered by LSD, NMU Public Safety officials said.

A campus-wide e-mail was sent out to all students warning them of the dangerous drug LSD, which is also known as “acid” that has made it’s way on campus. The e-mail said the “acid” the student took caused them to become uncontrollable with extreme violent behavior.

The student was hospitalized after the outbreak and eventually arrested.

Public Safety is urging students to be cautious of their surroundings and anything that someone gives them to consume, such as food or drinks.
