Illegal drugs are a fear for many parents. Hearing the problems when children are enticed into the clutches of pot, crack and heroin puts fear into the hearts of many parents. Unfortunately, that isn’t the only danger.
You’ve also probably heard a little bit about “huffing.” Kids using aerosol propellants of common household items can also cause a high. In a way, this is worse as it is caused by lack of oxygen to the brain. The propellant is heavier than oxygen and fills the lungs, causing the central nervous system to be starved of oxygen buy lsd.
The “choking game” follows the same pattern. By blocking off air flow, it’s a lot like huffing. The central nervous system is deprived of oxygen and a brief “high” is achieved. Unfortunately both forms are at the very least extremely destructive and often deadly.
It’s hard to find clues to these problems, as the kids want to keep them from adults. They are aware we disapprove, but most of them don’t have a clue as to how destructive these activities are.
What I’m about to tell you may be shocking, but you need to know. Many parents haven’t gotten this warning and the results are tragic. First, there is at least one “weed” that can be as devastating as huffing and the choking game. It’s called Jimsom weed.
Actually, it has more than one name. Where I grew up, it’s called “Gabriel’s trumpet,” because we know that if you eat it, drink it or otherwise consume it, that’s the next thing you’re likely to hear. If you are unaware of the problems this plant poses, you’re not alone. I’ve had a doctor ask me what caused the symptoms it invoked.
The chemicals are powerful drugs tamed by doctors for surgical purposes. Using them outside an operating room, does, can and has killed many people. In this day and age, it’s usually someone young hoping for a cheap high. I won’t name the drugs, but that’s what they are.
That’s bad enough, but the real crux of this article comes down to this. Your child can go to any store with a garden department and buy that drug and one very similar to LSD. The only reason I’m telling you this is because I’m *not* telling how they are prepared. I won’t do that. In fact, I’m not going to tell you which plants/seeds they are, as I know there are probably kids reading this and going “hmmmmm.”
However, if you see seed packets in your child’s room and there is little chance the kid is planning a surprise garden, it’s time to have a talk with both the child and his/her doctor.
Parents, please listen to me. There is a lot of information on the internet and not all of it is healthy for your child. If something seems wrong, trust your instincts. If you see something that is odd, look into it. Your child’s life may be at stake.
