OSWEGO COUNTY, N.Y. -- An Oswego County woman has filed a $5 million lawsuit against a local company and its owner in connection with her son's death.
Teresa Woolson claims synthetic marijuana led to her son's death and the store that sold it also to blame.
Victor Woolson drowned in Lake Ontario behind the Oswego water treatment facility last year.
Woolson had used bath salts in the past, but toxicology results showed only synthetic marijuana in his system. It's alleged that, before swimming, Woolson bought a product called K2 Avalanche Incense from Xtreme Underground, which is owned by Brian Colombo.
Both are named in the suit.
Teresa Woolson claims the product her son ingested was not labeled properly. The lawsuit claims that Victor's death was a result of the unreasonably dangerous conditions of the K2 product, the lack of instruction on how to use it, lack of warning and the design and manufacturing of the product. It states no ingredients or side effects were listed.
YNN placed a call to Colombo, but received no response.
