TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Tulsa police say a man who had been using synthetic marijuana died suddenly at the apartment where he lived.

Authorities say 51-year-old David King was found dead late Tuesday night at the Wheeling Avenue Apartments.

Tulsa television station KJRH reports (http://is.gd/sejZ0S) King’s roommate told police the two had smoked the synthetic drug several times over the prior few days.

Police say the substance used by King was branded as K2.

The drug and similar products are illegal in Oklahoma. Officials say K2 is a blend of herb and spice products that is treated with a potent drug that can cause adverse effects.
