More than 70 people people have fallen ill from a suspected bad batch of K2 synthetic marijuana, according to the Hearst Conecticut Media Group.

No deaths were reported, but officials said two people suffered life-threatening symptoms.

Most of the overdoses were on the New Haven Green, a popular, historic downtown park that borders part of Yale University, and officials said they expected the overdose total to increase. Police said they arrested a man believed to be connected to at least some of the overdoses.

While Lamont says he'd still back Democratic General Assembly candidates if he loses the primary, he wants the next governor to be someone who "leads with integrity."
