    I’m reasonably sure “shooted” is not a word.

    Of course it’s a word.
    It was in the BDN!

    This stuff is totally bad news.  I hope it will turn into a passing fad.

  • Unlike other drugs, which I don’t condone but at least understand the appeal of – the high – I just can’t comprehend why people would even want to experiment with something that has such a terrible track record. These users take stupidity to a whole new level, if that’s possible.

    That darwin will take some of these users will come as no surprise, and try as I may, I don’t think I’ll be able to feel bad about it.

        That sounds like a Zombie.  A lot of Zombie talk in our culture lately, are these poor people the Zombies?

    We might as well just let kids drink beer if they are going to use this crap as an alternative.  The more we make things illegal and hard to get ,the more they find other worse crap to get whacked out on.  It would really benefit our gene pool if these type of people would just get it over with before they reproduce.

    A pretty effective solution to slowing the use of this drug would be just post the mug shots on one big poster to show you what your morning after is going to do to your face…..along with your  costly ride to the ER and waking up in the county jail…..make the dealers pay for what this costs the community and demand the users tell where they bought it or face further jail time….without any penalties, there is no reason for dealers and users to quit.

    You know if the court system would throw away the key for 10 or 12 yrs after catching the pushers and users of bath salt. Maybe it would stop alot of the problem with the kids doing the drugs. But slapping them on the hands is not the answer with a $250 fine.

    Yeah, but on the bright side east Millinocket busted a couple for possession of a pound of marijuana. Granted pot smokers feel pain and don’t get violent, but it still makes the headlines. I can’t understand the political resistance to legalizing pot, and giving law enforcement more time to deal with the drugs that make people crazy and violent.

      I can understand the frustration with the ineffectiveness of our current war on drugs, and a desire to make all the marijuana related issues magically disappear, so I’d be fine with marijuana legalization if it wouldn’t result in about twice as many people smoking pot as we currently have, and I fear that would mean about twice as many stoned drivers on our roads to add to our current mix of drunk and texting drivers.  No thanks.
