One man has been arrested after more than 70 people overdosed in a CT park in just one day from a bad batch of K2 synthetic marijuana.
Numerous cases took place at the New Haven Green, a park near the university where a similar mass overdose took place on July 4. Three of them happened Tuesday night.
A mass overdose on August 15, near Yale University left at least 76 people ill, caused by what's suspected to be a batch of synthetic marijuana, known as K2.

"We literally had people running around the Green providing treatment", said Rick Fontana, the city's emergency operations director, according to The Associated Press. About five of his friends from the city's green overdosed on Wednesday.
The response from emergency responders has been "tremendous", Fontana said. It said major causes of the increase in deaths was due to the growing number of people using opioids and that the drugs themselves were becoming more potent.
Police and fire officials said the K2 was potentially laced with some type of opioid. "It is taking people out very quickly, people having respiratory failure", Police Chief Anthony Campbell asked WVIT to warn the public.
"It's a nationwide problem", Alston said of drug overdoses.
Some people at the scene also told officials that the K2 was "possibly" laced with the drug PCP, a source tells CBS. "The substance behind these overdoses is highly unsafe and must be avoided".
New Haven first responders were called to a similar overdose outbreak on the Green on July 4, when more than a dozen people were sick from synthetic marijuana.
