EAST GRAND FORKS (AP) - Authorities in northwest Minnesota and northeast North Dakota believe a bad batch of supposed methamphetamine is being trafficked in the Grand Forks-East Grand Forks area.

East Grand Forks police say two people in the neighboring cities were recently hospitalized for possible overdoses after using what they thought was meth.

Authorities say their symptoms mimic those caused by the hallucinogenic designer drug known as bath salts.

Police are asking anyone with information to contact them.
