"They're taking green leafed marijuana and using butane to leach the THC out of it," said Dr. Mark Urban, an emergency room physician.

Galloway on Wednesday told about 240 Pennsylvania police and corrections officers what to look for, and some of the ways users are hiding their stash.

He pointed out for ABC27 News something that appeared to resemble a small rubber ball.
