Pot Laced With Bug Spray May Be New Overdose Threat

Marijuana and tobacco laced with insecticides such as Raid – known on the street as “Katie” or KD – are apparently highly addictive and leading to overdoses, according to first responders.

Indianapolis firefighters say they’re responding to multiple KD overdoses a day.

Bug spray contains a high concentration of pyrethroids, which can induce a zombie-like state. It’s possible the drugs are becoming popular because they are cheap and easily available and do not show up on standard drug screenings.

Update: SC Johnson, the manufacturer of Raid, says reports that the product can induce a zombie-like state are "inaccurate." Click here for more information.
