    LSD-like drug found in Loudoun

    Several Loudoun teenagers have been hospitalized in the past month after using a narcotic with similarities to LSD.

    According to a report from the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office, the drug is believed to be 25I-NBOMe, more commonly known as 25i but also called LSD, "smiles" or "N-bomb." Like LSD, the drug is often found soaked on small squares of blotter paper for easier distribution and dosing. It can also be ingested as a powder or injected. Some users experience hallucinations and euphoria, but other negative side effects can include confusion, nausea, paranoia, seizures and in extremely high doses, death.

    On April 14, deputies responded to a house in the Lansdowne area where three teenagers were acting disorderly, including one who was yelling incoherently and kicked a deputy that was trying to help her. All three were taken to a local hospital; one was later taken to Inova Fairfax for further treatment.

    In 2013, the DEA used emergency scheduling powers to classify 25i as a Schedule I controlled substance, which means it has no medical use and a high potential for abuse.
