STRAWBERRY QUICK !!!



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. 




Info from Wikipedia -
Strawberry quick meth is a drug scare from 2007. Drug dealers were allegedly using coloring and flavoring to disguise methamphetaminesas Strawberry Quik, thus making them more appealing to children. The story was widely reported in the media, but no cases of children using flavored meth have been verified.



Drug scare

Fox News reported that drug dealers were using pop rocks to disguise the taste of meth and market it to children.
Emails began to circulate, claiming that meth was being disguised as candy and given to unsuspecting children. Snopes has reported that while colored crystal meth exists, and flavored meth may exist, there is no evidence of it being given to children. It is notable to point out that drug dealers seek out clients with a regular source of income, which precludes many children.
In 2008, the BBC reported that police in Oxfordshire, England, had warned over 80 schools of the risk of Strawberry meth, before considering it a hoax.


Existence of colored or flavored meth

Sometimes meth labs will try to brand their crystal meth product by coloring it in order to make it seem unique and to give it more market appeal.[4] Police and drug enforcement officials have conjectured that the idea for "strawberry meth" may have come from such a process.
Law enforcement and treatment providers in Nevada and California have reported the distribution and/or use of flavored methamphetamine.[5][6]
Strawberry flavored meth was seized in an apartment in Carson City, Nevada in January 2007.
