LIMA, Ohio (AP) _ Four high school students lay in critical condition Friday _ two of them on life-support _ after eating the seeds of a hallucinogenic weed, authorities said.

The students, ages 17 and 18, ate the jimson weed seeds late Thursday, said Shawnee Township police Chief Richard Kohli.

The weed can cause nausea, blurred vision and convulsions and send a person into a coma. It is commonly found on farms.
