Mephedrone coming to a City like Yours
Maybe you are familiar with this killer drug. Many people in the Midwest in the United States call it Scar Face, Plant food, Bath Salts, White Lighting etc. Sold in small packages that say not for human consumption to keep it legal and the cost is only twenty-dollars in the Midwest. What is Mephedrone? It is a drug that methamphetamine, crack, crank, or cocaine users buy and new users try for the same effects.
Mephedrone is a synthetic stimulant. This is a psychoactive stimulant, nothing more than a legal drug that is a copycat effect of all stimulant drugs. The problem is they keep it legal by the sticker that reads “Not for human consumption” on it. Yet when you see the packages, it has names such as Scar Face, Plant food, Bath Salts, White Lighting etc. Then the names of the bath salts are Euphoria, X-bath salt, White Lightening to give you energy bath salt, and many other names.
The users snort, eat or can shoot it up. This drug is very dangerous, as no one knows all the ingredients that maybe in the packages except that it has Mephedrone, which is the same as Methamphetamine. Parents pay attention because there are many young tweens, teens, and older using the drug. It is legal as mentioned. Nevertheless, the effects are surely the most unsafe drug possible.
Mephedrone is entactogen drug. However, the manufactures classify it as a psychoactive drug that produces distinctive emotional and social effects. Mephedrone is artificial substance based on ‘cathinone’ which is an alkaloid found in a shrub called Catha Edulis or chemically made. More money for legal drug sales until the states sees the HIGH statistics of death.
The drug can come as a tablet, however, in United States it is normally a white powder used by snorting is the most common use.
The people who use it say they do so for the
· Sex drive
· Feeling of stimulation
· Not sleeping
This is a drug for recreational use if the price is lower than methamphetamine. (Meth, Cocaine, Crack, and Crank).All states should make this illegal immediately. It is one of the worst and most addicting drugs without any knowledge of the contents mixed in it and legal! The side effects of this drug is excessive sweating, headaches, heart palpitations, heart attacks, nausea / vomiting, blue or cold fingers (reason unknown for the blue fingers of coldness), sever panic attacks, hallucinations, paranoia and sleep deprivation for up to three to four weeks.
The users become so energetic that they forget about their health. In the state of Indiana, this was very popular, yet in our town very deadly. We had consecutive suicides from being on this drug. From sleep deprivation, paranoia, and hallucinations you cannot know the next action the user may do. Whether hurt themselves or the ones in their life, due to paranoia. To the point that the user will commit suicide to hide from something that was never there. On the other hand, hurt family and friends believing they are setting them up.
The sad thing about Mephedrone is it is legal and sold at smoke shops and convenience stores. Indiana finally passed the law in July 2011 that it is illegal, anyone caught selling it, or has it with them, in pockets, cars, or homes charged with a felony. This needed to come sooner, but at least it is now a felony.
However, at the time it was illegal in Louisville, Kentucky it was legal in Indiana. Then Indiana made it illegal and it became legal in Kentucky. Kentucky is only twenty minutes from southern Indiana. Making it easy for our users to cross the bridge to Kentucky and buy it there. Now our young teens and adults just drive there to get their Mephedrone.
