Candied Meth

Apparently there is a new drug on the streets: Candied Meth. It comes in many different flavors, and resembles Pop Rocks. One of the street names is Strawberry Quick. And yes, it seems to be targeted to children, somewhat. I checked it out at snopes.com since I'd first heard about it via an eternally forwarded e-mail, and I tend not to trust those. Sure enough, it's for real.
It first started showing up on the streets in January of this year, so it is very very new. And yes, it is being found in schools. Nasty, evil, vile, whoever invented it! There's a nice cute picture of pretty pink candy at this link!

Inspired no doubt by things like "alco-pops" which are responsible for a huge amount of child/teen drinking here in the UK. When I was a working district nurse we had a seminar in which (this is a first for work!) we got to sample alco-pops and it was just like drinking candy. No way are the makers targeting adults and, I guess, what's legal in one sphere can inspire what's illegal in another.
