Don't Snort The Pink Speed

Posted in:
If you're not already dead, be warned that drug dealers are lacing meth with candy. According to experts at the DEA, it's obviously a cynical plot to trick children and stupid adults into doing lots of meth. From USA Today:
Reports of candy-flavored methamphetamine are emerging around the nation, stirring concern among police and abuse prevention experts that drug dealers are marketing the drug to younger people.


"Drug traffickers are trying to lure in new customers, no matter what their age, by making the meth seem less dangerous," [DEA Spokesman Steve] Robertson says.
Of course, the truth is that everybody likes sweets. Young people are disproportionately associated with candy because it's one of the only naughty things they're allowed to consume. It's probably also worth noting that children who want sugar won't buy it in an alley for $100 a gram, and that they are also often pumped full of meth derivatives by their doctors with no one complaining except the Scientologists.
"The traffickers know the word is out about what a horrible drug this is," [Deputy Drug Czar Scott] Burns says.

"They are having a tough time selling this product, especially to young people. What do people in marketing do when they have a tough time selling a product? They have to come up with some sort of gimmick."

Wait, what? I thought we were in the middle of a massive, unmanageable meth crisis. Scott Burns is right that meth use is on the decline, but it's annoying that he only brings this up when it suits him. Of course, meth use was going down before the "crisis" was even declared, yet these late-comers wanna take credit for saving America with poignant public service announcements. It wasn't until 2005 that ONDCP figured out meth and marijuana were different drugs. And they continue to mix them up.

Seriously though, it's the users who decide what drugs are in and out. There's no evidence that street-level marketing schemes or ONDCP propaganda make a lick of difference to party people who want the most bang for their buck. They know what they're after. Pink meth exists because people want pink meth, not because they don't want any meth at all.

Drug policy expert Chris Rock explains it best in his classic performance Bring the Pain:

"Drug dealers don't sell drugs. Drugs sell themselves. It's crack. It's not an encyclopedia. It's not a f**king vacuum cleaner. You don't really gotta try to sell crack. Ok?

I've never heard a crack dealer going "Man, how am I gonna get rid of all this crack?!"

candy meth

You have got to be kidding. Candy is a slang name. The particular product has a sweet taste when smoked. It is not sweet when eaten. The DEA has totally lost their mind. I guess they are using the slang name to feed some more lies the ignorant voters and doing that should carry a more severe penalty the selling drugs to kids. To think the gov. lets these people carry guns.

Question

When you smoke candy meth and a little piece goes down your throat, does it taste sweet?? please reply

ok i think ur a total ass

honestly.. u know what i think this is bull .. Drugs are hammerful to your body why would u want to eat snort smoke or do anything that would cause any kind of harm to you or your family.. secondly i dont think anyone in their right mind should be against the government on this topic.. Meth dealers are targeting kids now a days just saw they can make a profit and then some more for their own bad habbit .. i think we as americans should make sure this type of meth, does not leak into our kids .. the future of america mouths..

Propagandhi.

LOL "drugs are hammerful"

Don't Stop

Just because Marijuana does no harm is no reason not to continue the drug
war against it.
It keeps a lot of police busy.
It keeps prison guards with jobs
The DEA needs work
Bill Bennett would have a cow on his talk radio show if it were legaized.
Company's make millions doing drug testing of employees for corporate amerika.
and people would drink less booze if they could have a joint instead.

Also, the "drug war" against

Also, the "drug war" against marijuana ruins the lives of hundreds of thousands of perfectly functional, good people.
Wouldn't it be better for people to just smoke instead of drink?

Reply:Don't Stop

WTF?
If marijuana's not a problem then don't fix it.
If the prison guards and the DEA don't have anything better to do, then we don't need them.
By the way, If Billy Bennett doesn't like it, tough s**t that's life.

american or swiss

It seems to me that cheese is the new craze. To heck with strawberry quick im more of a cheese man. Im not gunna lie, i like to watch my 6 year old trip....on cheese.

substance abuse

everyone loves to get high and what not. who the fuck cares. some people i can only stand if they are all fucked up. I think that if you dont want people to do drugs then you can go fist yourself.

p.s. im high

Bill Clinton Didnt Inhale.

Haha, You sure are.

Candy Meth

To the person who was talking abut candy meth having a sweet taste when you smoke it and not when you eat it.....You are the idiot. You expect us to change our view on drug law and the dea because of some spun out meth head?

are you kiddin me ..this

are you kiddin me ..this candy meth is freaking influencing young kids and young teenagers to do it

^_^

It's not true you dumbass.

liars

people find it so hard to believe that your government would lie to you. Why? Because they are well programed robots and will listen to anything the mass media has to say. Yes, the mass media too is controlled by our government. With organized scare tacticts to lure the population into believing what they hear and even so much as making people believe they SAW something they DIDN'T. A scared population is more likely to seek a leader and listen to even an idiot (bush-who is a puppet for super powers) for advice. So this is why government has such a hold on the american citizens, why freedom of speech is almost all but eliminated, why when a new drug scare comes out with speculations of what the drugs will be used for, the good "sheepeople" agree, fear for their children, and begin the process of tattel-telling on every person they suspect to be a user......... Thought crimes coming to a city near you.......... thats right just for one person thinking or saying that another wants to do or is intending to do something, they can be punished........... drugs will never be legalized due to the profit the government generates.... scary I know.......letting someone else tell use what and when we can do things because they dont feel we are capable of making sound decisions for ourselves........

I'm glad someone said It.

THANK YOU!

Just who is that "spun out meth-head"...

This might be a bit late, but to the guy who said "You expect us to change our view on drug law and the dea because of some spun out meth head?" You would be very surprised at just who is a spun out meth head in reality, not what the DEA would like you to think...SWIM (Someone who insn't me) has had a problem with meth for about seven years.Just off the top of my head, within swim's group of aquaintances,here are their professions:
1. Lab tech
2 Attorney (2)
3. Paralegal
4. Hairdresser
5. Mortgage Broker
6. Apartment Manager
7. Unemployed(2)
8.Restaurant owner
9. Waiter (2)
10.Online retail Manager
11.Makeup artist
12. Interior Designer
13 Auto repairman
14. Insurance Adjuster
15. Financial Consultant (2)
16. Masseuse
17. Self-storage employee
18.Starbucks Regional manager
19. Casino employee (3)
20. Casino dealer
21. Audi Dealer
Swim's observation has been that people either hit rock bottom pretty fast, or somehow manage to incorporate their addictions within their life to a somewhat sustainable level...Oh, and swim has rarely seen anyone who would fit your governments description of a drug-user,since if we looked like those faces of meth mug-shots, well, we probably wouldn't get to keep our respective jobs very long, would we?

ISNT THAT THE FUCKING

ISNT THAT THE FUCKING TRUTH...........

tired

i cant do... send me basicly how can i do it... you can send to me video ..; i must look.. i try but didnt.. i used to many different material.. and to many different way.. mix mind .. week trying.. but nothing... please we can be friend... i need;;; here turkey i cant find like germany.. i must do it// [email protected]

=)

Cause the government are squares duuuuuude.

freedom

we have no freedom.... there is no such thing these days... i refuse to expressmy oppinions because they do not matter.. the government runs this country and i believe that they are doing and will do everything that they can do to keep it that way....

America....the United States of America is a load of bullshit..... we started off as a prosperous country and we are falling into this little "ant colony" we are owned by our government

all of our freedoms are gone..... we have no self expression.... our oppinions don't matter.... we don't own anything... it's the government's

i know a lot of respectful people who get a lot of respect from hundreds of people.... people that do more drugs than any of the people you've ever known.... and these same people probably have more stability..... more money.... and a much HAPPIER life than any of the people you know....

on the other hand i know people who can't handle drugs and don't need to do shit while on them.... but i think that a person's decision is their own and what they do is waht they do

RE: Just who is that "spun out meth-head"...

You are absolutely right. There are actually people that attempt to hide it and seem to succeed - so many people however don't allow anyone close enough to them to really know them and they are able to "function" by hiding it. I've certainly seen that scenario play out with a family member. Not all tweekers look like the faces of meth - those are around for the shock value.
Interesting discussion...

Meth blog

hey what is cheese? i just

hey what is cheese? i just wanna know

Marjiuana

Its not like if marjiuana becomes illegal police. DEA. And prison guards are ouit of work? lol

Firstly, they would not loose their jobs, take a look at your country, plenty of other things to fix. Its a waste of resources. Cops always ALWAYS have shit to do. Millions of people, thousands of crimes, UNRELATED to marjiuana, that are not being HANDLED.

Its one of the drugs with lesser after effects and long term negative effects.

Dont wanna start a alcohol vs cannabis discussion. But if any of you morons wanna say "short term memory" then thats with abuse, and abuse of alcohol causes way way way worse side effects.

Schizophrenia can be induced if the person has history (familly) with schizophrenia, it does not develope it simply gets triggered by the cannabis.

Be objective shut the fucking propaganda out and do some research yourselves. Im a minor, not old enough to drink, thus I have not smoked anything from the cannabis plant. Im still for legalizing it.

And speed can also be used, but people who dont have structure or controll should not even touch alcohol.

huh?

why does everyone care really
no matter what you say
people out there are stil
gunna get high
but now in the case
of strawberry quick
its messin wit our children

Meth capital

This story actually arose from a city named Palmdale in the Antelope Valley . The story was found to be false, but there is such a thing as pink meth which is colored by the psuedophedrine tablets used to make it.

BS.

Remeber when they said ecstasy comes in coloured tablets with logos so they appeal to kids/teens? Yeah...

kids and teens and candy drugs

i am sick of bikers taking our kids for a ride, i am glad the new legislation is sending bikers to victoria, Australia take your nasty filthy, candy drugs with you. How fucked is it to witness blood oozing out of every orifis of a body of a young lady. that is dying and laugh about it then film her dieing, then posting on u tube. drugs do kill, inocent young people start off only wanting a good time. your time of selling drugs will come to an end, i will not feel sorry for you, i will be there in court laughing at you. If the police do not have enough evidence. then i will get the evidence myself, i know where you live. how dare you think its funny to watch young people cut into thier own skin and watch blood pouring out of there wounds thinking there is worms in their skin. If the police do not get you then the parents will.

vivtims of propaganda

i am 58 years. doing marihuana since more than 40 years. also a lot of other drugs. and drink beer every day.

my 3 kids are  29, 34 and 36. only 1 of them smokes some weed - sometimes.
the other 2 never did any drugs.
thats about your "influence-theory"
even when the 2 were teenagers and all their friends were smoking weed and stuff - witch is just normal in this age - they did NOT!! 
MAYBE YOU ARE RIGHT FOR THE INFLUENCE  -   BUT WAS NOT THE RESULT YOU WOULD EXPECT  ;)
btw - their mom smokes too ;)

 

i dont understand how you can judge drugs if you have never tried?!

 

thats like talking about meat with a vegan :D

 

just keep loving 'war for america' and all your other retarded activities ;)

greetings

your best friend
