There is no such thing as Candy Flavored Meth

Halloween is coming and the “Strawberry Quick” Meth emails are going around again

Seems like this is going to be a yearly occurrence and people get worked up for no good reason. I wrote about the Strawberry Quick Meth email last year when I got the same email three times, from three different people warning me of the dangers of this new “candy meth” that is being given to kids.

What’s wrong with the above paragraph?

How about the fact that no meth dealer, pusher, user (whatever) is going to give meth away to anyone for nothing. Secondly, why would anyone think that they are making this special “flavored meth” to target young kids? I mean come on, use some common sense!

People that use meth are still human and believe it or not the majority of them aren’t souless a-holes with nothing better to do than get small children addicted to drugs.

So what prompted me to write about this today? Well, yet another email – this time quoting a radio station broadcast about “methamphetamine disguised to look like candy”. Visiting the stations website, the first thing I see is this image:

I seriously laughed out loud. I mean HOLY CRAP that’s alot of grape flavored meth! And look, the manufacturers even added a nice label so that stupid people would know there is grape flavored meth inside!

Geez.

Maybe the media should start checking snopes.

    I have seen snorted and smoked flavored meth it exists but is not popluar for many reasons to addicts when a buy happens you usually inspect and test the product first . If I saw green meth crystals i would not even test it for meth has to look smell and taste like meth not sour apples and the folks who cook it arent concerned in compelling an younger clientel most people who cook and especially deal dont want to be affilliated with minors of 13 and younger they would jepordize all production and clientel as well as freedom. And as far as the media claiming this story… yeah right ! getting a meth addict to share their meth is like getting a candy bar from a starving family in etheopia . greedy are meth users and only giving when something of greater value is traded

  • I see where you coming from, but I look at it as a part of a plan. They give the drug away to kids so they would get addicted to it. Once they are addicted to it, they start selling it to them. That's when kids start stealing money from their parents.

    That is the most uneducated and ignorant guess I’ve read…so far. Which actually is good because obviously you have never tried or been around crystal meth, or drugs use in general if i had to guess. Mary is absolutely correct. The only reason they would disguise meth is just for that reason, in an attempt to make it not look like drugs to the normal person. The funniest thing is they themselves stand out like nudist at church. And kids can’t “steal” enough money from there parents to to support their habit. Plus nothing is for free, there is always a price when it comes to this drug. And nobody trusts anyone else. A good point to mention is that all of these people were once brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, husbands, and wives. It’s impossible for a non-meth addict to really understand how sad it really is to be an addict. Like a moth drawn to a flame and certain death. If you met any of these people after they have been clean for awhile, you would be surprised to learn they’re human. Lots of them laugh easy and care a lot about others. Anyway you said you see where Mary’s coming from, fact is you have no idea about drug abuse, meth, drug dealing, or anything that relates to criminal activity. At best the way “you look at it”, is an uneducated guess. I apologies for being a little nasty. But as with all people that make uneducated guesses, your opinion gives the impression they were motivated by evil. Cause thats what “bad guys” or “women” do. They’re addicts that it. If they can get high without doing anything wrong or bad, then they do.

    Yea I always thought the same thing, I was addicted to opiates for about 6 years and I can say with complete confidence that I would NEVER put my drugs into Halloween candy and give it to kids, I guarded my stash with my life and the idea of giving it away was not even considered. I think the only drugs people would put in candy is laxatives or drugs that make you vomit because admittedly, that would be pretty funny.
