Four teenagers wind up in the hospital after taking an herbal drug promoted as an alternative to ecstasy.

Colorado Springs Police say the two 18 year-olds and two 17 year-olds bought a substance called Green Hornet Liquid from a store.

After taking the substance, they were rushed to a hospital Friday night in critical condition and suffering from seizures.

Police say no charges were filed because the product is legal but they warn it can cause life-threatening symptoms.
