According to the authorities, the illicit substances are a novel synthetic narcotic that combines ketamine, MDMA, methamphetamine, cocaine, and opioids. The material has a pinkish hue.

According to Santa Clara Valley Medical Center’s Dr. Daniel Nelson, who spoke with the local station, the combination of medicines is extremely dangerous and can cause hyperstimulation, psychosis, hallucinations, agitation, and other potentially fatal symptoms.
