Super-Potent Meth In Texas Can Be Absorbed Through Skin

A highly-potent strain of meth has been discovered in a Texas middle school, and authorities say it’s so strong it can be absorbed into the skin if one comes into contact with it.

The liquid drug was found at Blocker Middle School in Texas City, where six girls ingested it by dabbing it onto pieces of paper which they dissolved on their tongues, similar to the way some acid can be taken. School officials say the girls started “freaking out” and acting delirious, and were soon taken to a hospital for evaluation. The town’s residents say they’re shocked that the drug would be found on kids of that age, and are frightened for what this new potent form of meth could mean for the future.

“If it was my child I’d be extremely upset,” Sheriff Henry Trochesset said.

All six girls have been suspended and may be sent to an alternative school. For now, local authorities are focusing on finding out where the girls got the drug and say it more than likely came from outside the county.

“They’re not all bad girls,” said Danielle Allgood, a local parent. “I mean one of them I’ve known for quite some time. I mean I would have never expected it. She didn’t seem like a bad girl. She’s always been very sweet, very respectable, very involved in sports.”

  • Our Kids Aren’t Kids Anymore

    I have said this for the past couple of years now. Parents live in some sort of delusion. They think our teenagers are “children” and they do not know what they are doing. What do we see in the news every day? We have teenagers stabbing elderly people because they are bored, teenagers using drugs like crazy, teenagers having sex like rabbits, young girls purposely going after sex with older men, young boys purposely plotting to kill people, teenagers stealing cars for kicks, teenagers fighting over race, now we have teenagers stabbing over race and heck, I just saw a story on how steroids are rampant at many high schools.

    I was never trying to be offensive — just realistic about life. You can’t make things better if you keep lying to yourself about what is going on.

    Now, with this story, I am even shocked. This isn’t 1 girl but 6. It wasn’t a mistake — they knew what they were doing. But the worse thing, is that it was in MIDDLE school and not even high school. This is what happens when you ignore the realities of life and live in a dream world. Things get out of control. Yet, parents out there will still use the excuse that they are only “kids” and not hold them responsible.
