Emails advising recipients about "Strawberry Quick", a form of pink, strawberry scented methamphetamine began hitting inboxes in April 2007.
The "Strawberry Quick" is also called "Strawberry Meth", a type of crystal meth going around that looks like strawberry pop rocks (the candy that sizzles and 'pops' in your mouth). It also smells like strawberry and it is being handed out to kids in school yards. They are calling it strawberry meth or strawberry quick.
Kids are ingesting this thinking that it is candy and being rushed off to the hospital in dire condition. It also comes in chocolate, peanut butter, cola, cherry, grape and orange.
But 10 months later today, I still read this email warning on a forum. The poster said he got this warning email from a school council, and pass this on to remind according to school council's email, because it may happen to others schools too. (http://www.coviews.com/viewtopic.php?p=190202)
Apparently this new form of drug is real, but according to the drug control authorities, its distribution may actually be very uncommon, and authorities have found very little evidence to suggest that flavoured meth is a widespread problem. ( http://www.hoax-slayer.com/strawberry-quick-meth.shtml)
I don't know if it is the ignorance of "School Council" or this kind of "Strawberry Quick" come back to school yard?
