Tough to argue that meth is bad. But city police say there could actually be a really bad batch of the illegal drug on Winnipeg streets right now.

The Winnipeg Police Service say there's been "above-normal occurrences" in the last 24 hours of people being admitted to hospital suffering from adverse reactions to illegal street drugs, in particular methamphetamine or its derivatives.

"It is possible that there is 'bad batch' of these drugs on the street," police said in a new release late Thursday night.

The WPS reminds the public that the use of these illegal substances has the potential to cause serious injury or death, said Duty Insp. Barry Kostchuk.
