Crazy Clown

Not the kind of clown you'd find out your little ones birthday party.

So there's a new drug running rampant and this one is called Crazy Clown. On Monday a radio station I listen to talking about how 8 people in GA were sent to the hospital after using the drug.

I pulled up a news article which you can read here

They report that the drug, which is "most commonly smoked or burned in a small bowl and inhaled," is a form of synthetic marijuana.
It also went on to say that some of the people are on life support and/or intensive care. Someone said a girl was foaming at the mouth and rolling around on the ground. What are people doing to the drugs? Why are they lacing them with things that can kill?

Scary! If you have teenagers I suggest you read the article and any information you can find on the drug. And if you haven't heard about Molly do a Google search. My local police gave me a frightening insight.

Molly, Not the Girl Next Door

I’ve had an extremely busy summer…too many things happening. I used to write for Listen Magazine and to do so I had to be “up” on the recent trends with teens. The good, bad and ugly. I was faithful about this while my eldest daughter was a teenager. When my middle daughter became a teen I was still writing for Listen Magazine, but I never worried about her. She just didn’t seem like the child to do anything wrong.

Well, we were having some issues and I was talking to the DARE officer at the school and he was telling me about a new drug, Molly. Here’s a definition of Molly.

“Molly,” the powder or crystal form of MDMA, the chemical used in Ecstasy, has been a popular drug at music festivals and now high schools.

The police officer told me, it’s a quick high. The thing that scared me the most? People are making the drug in the garage. They are using ingredients like rat poison, calcium powder, caffeine, and methamphetamine to name a few.

The DEA considers it a controlled substance and can become addictive. It can cause sleep issues, confusion, depression and dehydration.

It’s a scary drug. One you should become better familiar with you have children in high school. A simple Google search will net you a ton of information.
