    Exclamation High school teens rushed to hospital herbal drugs

    As if poor parents don't have to worry as it is about so many thing you can now worry your kid will decide to trip on HERBS!

    "Snurf" it's some da*n herbal supplement you can buy online and it produces that ever sought after high, tripping. However I called a friend's teen and he told me "it's nuttin but DXM". O.K. so these kids are all just swallowing stuff and in school none the less.

    It's fair to say that DXM isn't anything to play with, and my friend's kid's reaction is probably one alot of teens would give ya.

    Four 10th Grade boys at Council Rock High School got rushed by ambulance from the school after ingesting this crap that sickened them. They were rushed from the local suburban Philly hospital to CHOP. I figured this is important and hope people with teens and pre-teens are made aware of it.

    Keep talking to your kids.

    This is scary about DXM:

    and

    I can't take cold medicines with dextromethorphan because it makes my blood sugar drop (I have low blood sugar, not diabetes) and I get really sick. If this is a larger dose, I can't imagine how sick I would be if I took it.

    I have a friend that worked at a hospital that had 3 teenage boys as patients.
    They had read on the internet that gymsum(sp?) weed would get you high.
    THey were able to identify it and go to a field and gather some.
    The weed got them high, but also sent their hearts into a very dangerously high rate that no medication would slow down. The boys survived but the doctors were very concerned that their hearts would literally explode from the uncontrollable rhythm.

    Scary stuff.

    Misty, I've never seen that intervention show. I'd have been interested to see that.

    Dangerous stuff these kids are messing with. We all have to be informed and educated.
