I know parents are busy - been there done that, stress, $$$, kids, life, 99% so I know that we don't have time - heck we can not keep up with technology of cell phones never mind designer drugs and with little kids well, we figure they won't -
HAVE you seen these F&^%*! Pills!? Really- I had no idea! The image below is of the pill Ecstasy. Cute, colorful little dog, hearts, flowers, butterflies...
had someone yesterday walked up to me and said "want one?" and held out their hand I would have picked one up in a second and popped into my mouth! REALLY.
They look like Candy. That is the IDEA. They LOOK harmless.
I pray this is being taught by D.A.R.E. instead of the lies they spread right now on the Medicinal Cannabis page -*Mama bears fur along the back is standing on end.
That is an entirely different blog -coming SOON.
I thought maybe it was just me - so this afternoon I asked 20 people - all ages, educated some with teens, little ones and some with grown children. IT's NOT just me I had 18 replies - NO they did not know that is what the pill Ecstacy looked like - had no idea and thought the same thing I did. HOW can you not ? -LOOK at them!
Even one that did was amazed at the wide range of colors. From all that I am reading it is a much more serious problem than Cannabis. Yet - if most us found a baggie of weed we would know what it was. Yet the one that is ruining lives, kills, is addictive, easily available, made daily in a home near you and is CUTE & CHEAP we don't even know what it looks like??
I had to draw this in hopes that one person - a parent that did not know now KNOWS!!! Perhaps they will show their children. I pray that that toon never comes true but part of me thinks it might already have. I don't want to research that. Ecstasy is the most frequently mentioned drug in telephone calls to Poison Control Centers.In my search, sadly this was one of the first headlines to appear : 9 Jan 2012 – A 22-year-old woman died from an apparent ecstasy overdose at a Vancouver house party early Sunday morning. 22 at a party for a good time. I wish she would have smoked some cannabis instead ;-(
NOT CANDY - May cause death- available most places (schools) and CUTE & CHEAP!
SHOW your kids. Teach your kids. Or would you rather someone else?

So this started with the question Designer Drugs or Cannabis? You tell me.
I would have picked the happy face or the cute squirrel...
