Crystal Meth for our Kids?

The recent news (rumor) around the Internet as well as other media sources is regarding Crystal Meth that is being given to children. This form of Crystal Meth looks like pop rocks candy. You may have received this type of e-mail. Here is a brief review of one that was sent to me.
A very scary thing is going on in the schools right now. There is a type of crystal meth going around that looks like strawberry pop rocks. It smells like strawberry also and it is being handed out to kids in school yards in AR.
I'm sure it will make its way around the country. Kids are ingesting this thinking it is candy and being rushed off to the ER in dire condition. It also comes in chocolate, peanut butter, cola, cherry, grape and orange. It looks just like pop rocks. Please instruct children to not accept candy that looks like this even from a friend and to take any that they may have to a teacher, principal, etc.


Included was a photo that looked like a nice sized sandwich bag of this “Crystal Meth”.

Is it true? I guess it is possible. However, you need to keep in mind that an once of Crystal Meth may cost $1000 or more!

Are drug dealers just giving $1000 worth of drugs away to kids? Maybe… Crystal Meth is cheap to make. A cheapskate could purchase the items for about $150 and turn that into about $10,000 worth of drugs. Unfortunately, if kids eat this much Crystal Meth, they will probably not get addicted to it, they will probably be dead. So there is no “market” advantage to giving away the drugs to children to get them hooked on it and coming back to buy more.

I think the thing to remember is to teach your children about the dangers of drugs and about dealing with strangers.
