Bad acid in Humboldt?

Humboldt County, California police are warning acid-eaters after responding to quite a few recent situations of individuals experiencing (very) bad trips. Indeed, last month paramedics found a man who apparently had castrated himself. According to the Arcata police chief, it's not known whether the bum trips are a result of contaminated LSD or just an indicator that more people than usual have taken the drug in the last month. From the AP:

Earlier this month, a 21-year-old man who took LSD wandered into the forest for two days without adequate clothing or shoes. The next day, a 19-year-old man became violent while having flashbacks two weeks after taking the drug.

Then officers found an 18-year-old man on LSD throwing himself to the ground in the middle of the street.
