Last week some kids were sent home from middle school because they were "sick." They had in fact each eaten a box of "Skittles" and chugged a bottle of Delsym as a chaser.
"Skittles" (aka DXM, CCC, Triple C, Robo, Poor Man's PCP) is a stupid new trend in children wanting to get f*cked up. It is basically high doses of dextromethorphan (cough suppressant) taken to get a feeling of euphoria along with visual and auditory hallucinations. Now you know why we can't sell it to kids under 18 because they have a terminal case of the stupids and will try ANYTHING they see on the interweb to get high.
PATHETIC! You know what you get along with the sensation you wanted? You get headache, nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, stomach cramping, diarrhea, and in extreme toxicity you can end up in a coma or get a nice bit of brain trauma, kidney, or liver damage.
I feel that somehow these kids parents are failures. I feel that these kids will always be failures. I know this because these kids stole four boxes of Coricidin and four bottles of Delsym from a retail pharmacy outlet near their school. The path to being a "crack head" starts younger and younger.
What happened to the good old days when drug experimentation started with alcohol and marijuana in high school? What happened to the days when you experimented with things like LSD and ecstasy in college? What happened to the days where you entered adulthood and the real world with minimal chemical vices, working in a real job to support yourself and your family, and cutting loose every once in a while to relive the "good old days?"
The point I am making is that I love the original Skittles from M & M Mars. The only high I get from them is the high blood sugar that fuels my sprints between the drive thru and the fill counter. How dare some little douche bag kids besmirch the name of my beloved Skittles with something so stupid!
