Smiles: Not Just a "Shot Girls" Bar Anymore
This morning I came across yet another story on a new synthetic drug that is very scary. 2C-I, or Smiles, is a synthetic street drug that does not come up when drug tested and has very severe side effects. Two teenagers have reportedly died from the drug and many more have posted their experiences on YouTube. It is scary to see the plethora of designer drugs that plague our high schools and general communities. It is even scarier to think that many are designed purely to circumvent discovery. Hopefully parents are starting to take note and realize that a small swab-strip packet claiming to test for "hundreds" of drugs will not test positive for everyone. Even one experience can be too many. Don't believe me? Ask the parents of children who were taken way too early from this life after just one "experiment."
