About 1:30 p.m. Friday, multiple emergency responders and officers responded to Magrill Park in the 500 block of North Green Street in Longview. A Longview Fire Department official who was on scene said that they believe the people transported consumed synthetic marijuana prior to the call.

An official later confirmed the name of the drug was called "Mr. Happy," which is a K2-like substance.

The fire department released a statement on the incident Friday afternoon:

"On June 23, 2017, the Longview Fire Department responded to Magrill Park in the 500 block of North Green Street. Upon arrival they found several people suffering from what is believed to be the effects of an illegal substance. Bystanders advised that the patients had been using potpourri which is a form of synthetic marijuana. Four patients were taken to the hospital for treatment.  Two other patients refused EMS transport."
