    New drug in Schools...

    Please pass this on even if you do not have kids in school. Parents should
    know about this killer drug.
    Grandparents, send it to your family and friends.

    This is a new drug known as 'strawberry quick '.
    There is a very scary thing going on in the schools right now that we all
    need to be aware of.
    There is a type of crystal meth going around that 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. They
    are calling it strawberry meth or strawberry quick.
    Kids are ingesting this thinking that it is candy and being rushed off to
    the hospital in dire condition. It also comes in chocolate, peanut butter,
    cola, cherry, grape and orange.
    Please instruct your children not to accept candy from strangers and even
    not to accept candy that looks like this from a friend (who may have been
    given it and believed it is candy) and to take any that they may have to a
    teacher, principal, etc. immediately.
    Pass this email on to as many people as you can (even if they don't have
    kids) so that we can raise awareness and hopefully prevent any tragedies
    from occurring.

    This is a little missleading according to snopes, there are colored crystal meth that looks like pop rocks but the flavoring part is incorrect.

    Maybe I was just to much of a delinquant (sp?) but none of this stuff is new.Its new to the media and the school boards have finally woken up.

    There is even a way to flavor Marijuana if you realy wanted to.

    Best thing everyone can do is stay involved with your kids all the way thru school but dont pressure them about the small stuff.Put to much pressure on them and they will skip the petty things.

    Small things work themselves out drug abuse doesnt.

    Jerry what that is dealing with though is something that can be done right in front of an adult that they would NEVER know is drugs, you would actually think it was the pop rocks candy product. that's why we were sent it to keep an eye out for it as several kids have actually died from doing that stuff and/or overdosed. :/
