The Drug Enforcement Agency said there has been an increase in the number of teens abusing a drug called ketamine.
It is sold on the streets as Special K, and it's starting to resurface as a popular drug-of-choice among teens.
Ketamine is used by veterinarians as an animal tranquilizer, but when it's abused by humans, it can cause hallucinations, breathing problems, seizers and even death.
"It makes humans feel kind of like they're not there," veterinarian Danois Salas. "Their body is there, but they really can't understand and tell what's going on. So it's like, in a sense, an out of body experience."
Police said the drug is often snorted or injected. It's safe for large animals like horses, but can be fatal when humans abuse it.
