Meth Dealers Targeting Kids With New Drugs

Meth dealers really don't care if they kill your kids - even your elementary school kids - because it's all a soulless search for money for them. Just how horrifying these meth dealers are is evidenced by two new drugs, Cheese and Strawberry Quick.

Strawberry Quick looks like strawberry pop rocks (the candy that sizzles and 'pops' in your mouth). It also smells like strawberry and it is being handed out to kids in school yards. But it's a mixture of meth and Kool Aid, according to Fox News.

Kids are ingesting this concoction thinking that it is candy and many of them end up being rushed off to the hospital in dire condition. And all of them get a taste of drugs at an early age, which just shouldn't happen.

It also comes in chocolate, peanut butter, cola, cherry, grape and orange.

Cheese, if anything, is even worse, according to Fox, which says:

Something called “cheese” is killing kids. In August of 2005, no one had even heard of it — so much so, that when a school district police officer first saw a bag of this drug, he thought it was fake. Now officials realize cheese is all too real; at least 21 kids have died from overdosing on it.

Cheese is a combination of black tar heroin and crushed up Tylenol PM tablets and hits of it sell for a buck or two. Like any type of heroin, cheese is highly addictive and deadly. If that’s not enough to scare you, there’s this: drug pushers cooked it up special for kids.

“Traditionally heroin is going to be an adult user drug,” says Dallas Independent School District Officer Jeremy Liebbe. “Black tar heroin is cooked on a spoon, mixed with liquid and injected. Meaning needles. Not many kids are wild about needles, so if you want to market heroin to kids you've got to come up with an alternative to it.”

I know you probably never thought you'd have to warn your elementary school kids about drugs, but those days are over. Let them see these pictures, and tell them what these incredibly bad people are trying to do to them. Tell them that if they see these drugs in their schools to immediately tell their friends they're dangerous, and run tell a teacher!

Well they teach sex ed at a younger and younger age so they should teach you not to use drugs at a younger age. Even though when i was a kid we had D.A.R.E., but i dont remember it teaching much. And its unfortunate but as much as you tell a kid not to do drugs and teach them how to avoid it they will still do it. We as humans are a curious people and kids are even more vulnerable to it since they are less knowledgeable on the consiquences. When you tell a kid not to touch a stove what do they do, they touch the stove. So can we really expect them not to do drugs when we say dont. Its a terrible things, and its unfortunate that it cant really be stopped in some situations.

Unfortunately, this is not quite true. This was an email hoax that FOX was suckered into, and has very little basis in truth.

You can read about it here:

Meth is a real enough problem with kids to have to resort to email chain letter hoaxes.
