4 West Point cadets among spring breakers who overdosed in Florida

(ABC News) Four spring breakers who overdosed Thursday night in Wilton Manors, Florida, are cadets at the U.S. Military Academy, West Point public affairs told ABC News Friday.

One of the cadets is on the West Point football team, according to the academy, which is located in Orange County, New York.

"The U.S. Military Academy is aware of the situation involving West Point cadets, which occurred Thursday night in Wilton Manors, FL," a West Point statement said.

Miami ABC affiliate WPLG reported the cadets were part of a group of college students from New York state at a short-term rental home where cocaine laced with fentanyl caused seven people to overdose.

6. Fentanyl in cocaine?

Someone is trying to kill people with that combination. Each drug has the opposite effect of the other. There's absolutely no reason to combine the two unless you're trying to kill someone.

Not that I'd have personal knowledge of either drug's effects, mind you.

8. Seems best that we know now they are not commisioned officer material

and not later when it could have dire consequences on a possible battlefield and cost servicemen lives.
Totally stupid to potentially be a West Point graduate and throw it all away for f'ing drugs.
