Female students at a Texas City middle school were caught with liquid methamphetamines last week after several students had been acting oddly during classes at Blocker Middle School. Reportedly, the drugs have been circulating on stamps. If it is in Houston, it is a safe bet that it will be in the Midwest if not already. I urge parents to talk with their teens about the harmful effects of Meth and encourage them to report it to adults, teachers, and even police officers without fear of punishment for reporting it. Many may feel like they are a snitch or turning on their friends but I would suggest educating them into believing that they are not a snitch but rather a hero because they may just save a life in the process. According to the local authorities, this form of the drug is so potent that it can be absorbed through the skin if their body comes into contact with the stamps.
The basic idea behind this new form of Methamphetamine is typically dissolved in water with high a pH. The reason for this effect is to transport the drugs undetected to the naked eye. The next phase is to put the liquefied drug inside soda and water bottles. Assuming the drug manages to get through customs and local police checks, the liquid substances are boiled converting the drug into solid form again.
If teenagers are getting a hold of the drug in this portent stage, then for obvious reasons, it can be deadly whether it is ingested or comes into contact with the skin.
