    DALLAS, Texas (CNN) -- A cheap, highly addictive drug known as "cheese heroin" has killed 21 teenagers in the Dallas area over the past two years, and authorities say they are hoping they can stop the fad before it spreads across the nation.

    "Cheese heroin" is a blend of so-called black tar Mexican heroin and crushed over-the-counter medications that contain the antihistamine diphenhydramine, found in products such as Tylenol PM, police say. The sedative effects of the heroin and the nighttime sleep aids make for a deadly brew.

    Wow! This is a new one on me. It's probably all from the same source, someone who doesn't know what they're doing.

    I know they've started flavoring 'meth' to attract new customers. It seems that meth by itself doesn't taste too good so it's popularity started going down a bit. So the ingenious producers of this poison have decided a new way to attract buyers, a variety of flavors.

    JMHO

    I've never heard of the drug. Scary statistics. The poor kids need to find an interest that doesn't include drugs of any type.
