Guilty Plea in Wesleyan Drug Case Highlights ‘Party Drug’ Problem

A former Wesleyan University student pleaded guilty to federal drug dealing charges Thursday, admitting that he distributed a party drug that sickened nearly a dozen people in February of this year.

Zachary Kramer, 22, was one of five people arrested in connection with the rash of overdoses in a case that caught national attention and roiled the Middletown, Conn., liberal arts campus, which has a reputation for progressive politics and freewheeling experimentation.
