25-I, LSD-like drug, emerges in northwest Indiana

April 21, 2014 (MICHIGAN CITY, Ind.)

It's called "25-I" and is a synthetic substance related to LSD and ecstasy.

The Michigan City Police Department provided a photo of the drug that is sold as a white powder or liquid and can be mixed with alcohol or energy drinks.

Authorities say 25-I may trigger violent episodes and seizures and it was confirmed as the cause of one death at a festival in New Orleans last fall.
