New Crystal-meth drug looks like candy

New crystal-meth drug sold to SA kids looks and tastes exactly like candy:

This is a new crystal-meth drug circulated at South African schools,  known as ‘strawberry quick ‘. It looks like a sweet – the well-known strawberry pop-rocks candy that sizzles and ‘pops’ in your mouth. It also smells  like strawberry and it is being handed out to even the smallest children in school yards. They  are calling it strawberry meth or strawberry quick.


Kids are  ingesting this thinking that it is candy and are being rushed off to the hospital in dire condition. It also comes in other flavours: chocolate, peanut butter, cola, cherry,  grape and orange. Please instruct your children not to accept candy from strangers and even not to accept candy that looks like this from a friend (who may have been given it and believed it is candy) and to take any that they may have to a teacher, principal, etc. immediately. source:
