On Thursday, Oct. 17, an officer was called to Weafer Park on Forest Park Road for a medical emergency. The Woburn Fire Department was also called to the scene.
Upon arrival, a teenage female said she smoked some marijuana with a friend, was having a bad trip and needed help. Her friend left the scene on foot when she called 911.
The officer reported that the calling female was crying, very nervous and excited, was talking at a fast pace and saying things like, “Am I in reality right now?”
After several minutes, the girl began to calm down. The officer asked her if she had taken anything else and she said that she had not. Because of concern for the second girl’s safety, police asked the calling party if she could call her friend and have her return to the scene to be evaluated.
Shortly after the phone call, the second girl walked back to the area. The second girl said that she smoked a few bowls of marijuana and her friend began to “freak out.” She started to yell erratically, and at that point her friend called 911.
The girls agreed to be evaluated by firefighters, who discovered that each had a heart rate of 160-170 beats per minute. According to the report, this is not a typical reaction to smoking marijuana and is even too high for someone who is nervous or has been running around.
Based on the reaction to smoking, and results of the medical tests, it is likely that there was an additional drug in the marijuana, police said. When asked where she got the marijuana, the reporting female said from a man, but she does not know where he lives as he would meet her in random place to purchase the drugs.
Both girls were transported to Winchester Hospital and because they are minors, their parents were notified.
