Police have again warned synthetic drug users to stop gambling with their lives following the death of a teenage boy in the NSW Hunter region.

Dean Shield, 17, was discovered in a reserve at Rutherford on Saturday night after allegedly smoking ‘Kronic’.

Two other men, both aged 22, were treated for non-life-threatening symptoms after taking the same substance at nearby Telarah.

Police are worried there is more of the same, potentially lethally batch still available and have urged users to rethink using the so-called legal highs.
