This will probably be regarded as intemperate, but as a parent myself I tend to think that people who sell drugs to children ought to spend the rest of their lives in jail. I furthermore believe that people who manufacture drugs explicitly targeted at children should too, but that the time from conviction to cold carry-out ought to be rather short.
I have no strong opinions on whether the vehicle for such sentence recommendations should be a hangman’s noose, the gas chamber or the electric chair. Any of them will do.
EMT’s at volunteer fire departments have received emails from emergency responder organizations to be on the lookout for a new form of crystallized methamphetamine that is targeted at children and to be aware of this new form if called to an emergency involving a child that may have symptoms of drug induction or overdose.
They are calling this new form of Meth “Strawberry Quick” and it looks like the “Pop Rocks” candy that sizzle in your mouth. It is dark pink in color and has a strawberry scent to it.
Tell your children not to accept candy from strangers – this is obviously an attempt to seduce children into drug use. They also need to be cautious in accepting candy from even friends that may have unwittingly received it from someone else.
Talk with your children about drugs. Don’t wait.
