inmates at the Franklin County jail were treated Monday after smoking
synthetic marijuana, better known as K2.
County sheriff AJ Smith said some of the inmates were hospitalized
briefly but were returned to the jail; one
inmate lost consciousness and was taken to intensive care in
drug was smuggled into the county jail by a female inmate who was
arrested over the weekend at Franklin Correctional Institution
in Carrabelle for bringing in contraband.
sheriff said that even though she was strip searched, she was
carrying contraband “inside her body” and that was not found.
K2 got out to the inmates and they smoked it and had an adverse
reaction to it.
Sheriff’s Office has taken steps to keep contraband out of the
jail, - the jail now only allows video visitation of inmates and the
sheriff's office has added additional fencing to keep people from
throwing drugs into the yard where inmates exercise.
