A spike in drug-related seizures for spring breakers partying in Texas is causing concern.

Karen Grace spoke to Dr. Miguel Fernandez from the University of Texas Health Science Center.

"A number of them had seizures," Fernandez said. "Totally altered and didn't know what was going on. People want to talk about the trending drugs but really alcohol in excess is much more dangerous."

It's National Poison Control Awareness week. State poison control officials say to call 1-800-222-1222 in the case of a scare.
