LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Lafayette police are warning about an increase in use of a dangerous drug.

Police said over the past weekend, they responded to at least 10 calls for service related to the use of spice. Many of those calls led to people being hospitalized or arrested.

Spice is a leafy substance like marijuana, that has been sprayed with chemicals. It can cause hallucinations, paranoia and can even death.
