Since I get to watch TV in the middle of the night sometimes I just flip around the dial. Watched a fascinating program about drugs the other night called MSNBC investigates. Now understand what the pdoc was saying to me. And what I guess a lot of you know- I recall TMOM dealing with this on the general board. Which is that when you get outside of an urban area they don't import drugs, they make this awful stuff they inject. It's made in a kitchen sink, fields, cars or sheds, basically anywhere, from normal over the counter cold pills from the pharmacy, automotive starter fluid and an agricultural chemical accelerant. It gives a high beyond compare, is instantly addictive and cheap. I recall TMOM saying that they had thousands of dollars of supplies to make this stuff but that's not necessary. Some tubing, a flame, some mixing bowls and that's about it. But it's an accelerant so accidents are common. Fatal ones. AND the fire itself is toxic to firefighters and leaves behind a house or car which is now a toxic waste site in need of decontamination. They showed neighborhoods of burned out houses, cost to destroy or re-build is beyond value of house. So neighborhoods are vacant. The residue from making this stuff is also toxic and needs to be dumped. It's polluting streams- drug dealers aren't picky where they dumpt it. Animals are dying. Firefighters and police need to be trained to recognize and deal with this situation. DAILY in some places! Small towns all over the Midwest are being destroyed by this. Not to mention people and families obviously. Also interesting- making the drug does not destroy the toxicity of the chemicals. So what addicts are putting into their bodies is toxic chemicals- automotive starter fluid and agricultural chemical in their veins!!! No one knows the long term effect on the body!!! Can't blame this on foreigners- we're doing this to ourselves!!!
