grape flavored meth

grape flavored meth- courtesy DEA Microgram The DEA Western Laboratory (San Francisco, California) recently received a ziplock plastic bag containing a mixture of translucent crystals and tiny purple specks that had a distinct grape candy-like odor, purported to be “flavored methamphetamine” (see Photo 1). The exhibit was acquired by DEA Special Agents in Everett, Washington. Analysis of the exhibit (total net mass 26.7 grams) by FTIR, GC/MS, GC/IRD, and HPLC confirmed 1.1% methamphetamine (salt form undetermined), diluted with dimethylsulfone and sucrose; the sample appeared to be mostly dimethylsulfone, based on the FTIR spectrum. It is possible that the tiny purple specks in the exhibit were bits of a grape flavored candy or lollipop, but this was not formally determined. This is the first such submission to the Western Laboratory. [Editor’s Notes: “Flavored methamphetamine” (most notably “strawberry meth”) has received extensive and often alarmist coverage in the mass media over the past two years. However, this is the first confirmed sample of “flavored methamphetamine” submitted to a DEA laboratory, and is also the first such report by any laboratory to Microgram. A small number of exhibits with unusual colors have been submitted to the South Central Laboratory (Dallas, Texas) over the past two years; however, none of the latter samples had any noticeable fruit or candy-like odors. Several exhibits of “flavored cocaine” were reported by the Western Laboratory; see: “Flavored Cocaine” in Modesto, California. Microgram Bulletin 2008;41(7):60.]

      One has to wonder ... why? Is it just the novelty of it? Propaganda says to entice kids to use it at a young age but swim thinks thats stupid. First off kids are smart, a bit of flavoring still isn't going to make it taste good and no effect on smoking and if they're smoking they know what they're doing and it wasn't candy that enticed them. Swim also has never known a seller who wanted a bunch of snot nosed brats as customers.

      So true i think it was a total accident and was a complete mistake. onr more thing smoking it with the grape bits would totally ruin the product causing the shard to turn brown and burnt, tasting really bad.
