The office of the nation's 'drug czar' has out a new and scary propaganda piece about Ecstasy laced with meth coming across the Canadian border.
'EXTREME' ECSTASY FEARED
Drug control officers in Washington have issued a warning across the U.S. about ecstasy pills laced with methamphetamine that are pouring into northern states from Canadian border points, including Windsor.
The illegal pills are being "dumped" in several northern border states and then ferried across the country, according to the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy ( ONDCP ).b
The combination of methamphetamine and ecstasy can have severe health consequences as both have toxic effects on the brain, according to ONDCP.
Together, the drugs can interfere with the body's ability to regulate temperature leading to hypothermia, which can result in liver, kidney, and cardiovascular system failure and death.
(ecstasy does this by itself and always has had the potential to do that....has nothing to do with anything it might be laced with. As far as I know anyone who ever died from ecstasy did so because their body was unable to regulate temperature.)
John Walters, the U.S. drug czar, called the "extreme ecstasy" a disturbing development.
"Historic progress against ecstasy availability and use is in jeopardy of being rolled back by Canadian criminal organizations," he said in a statement Thursday.
"Desperate to develop their client base, they are dangerously altering a product for which demand by youth and young adults had plummeted and are exploiting vulnerabilities along our shared border.
"This is alarming for the youth of both Canada and the United States."
The potential for a life-threatening or fatal overdose is increased when meth-laced ecstasy is combined with alcohol.
I hate to be the one to break the news to ol' John Boy Walters....but the chemical makeup of Ecstasy includes METHAMPHETAMINE. 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine
I am sickened by the fact that this lying sack of shit gets paid to be a lying sack of shit...with our tax dollars. Off with his head!
