Sergeant Detritus does not approve.

Not my idea of a good way to get stoned....

At least they aren't shooting up mayonnaise or smoking banana peels.

Yes, people did that.

Yes people are stupid.

No, they won't change, ever.

Not surprising, when you consider the aggregate intelligence of those yokels.

I'd like to see concrete proof of that.

Is this the new fake drug scare?

Came to say, verbatim, this.

Getting high on gravel sounds like the pits.
 
2014-02-25 04:57:00 PM  
I moved out of Indiana because it was too boring, so I'm getting a kick out of these replies.
 
2014-02-25 04:57:52 PM  
Is gravel the new jenkum?  Or is this a real thing, like flashing your headlights and getting shot by gang bangers?
 
2014-02-25 04:59:29 PM  
As an Indiana resident, I have prepared this statement.

Where-where-where I come from in the North, we used to have exquisite gourmet rocks. Only now... now, they're all gone.

I love the wealth of detail the police provided.

Why don't they just cut to the chase and have every press release read BE AFRAID OF THINGS

How else are they going to justify their budget increase?

Gravel huh?

With no details of what it actually is? Or what the dangers might be? Just 'drugs, bad, be afraid'. Awesome.
 
2014-02-25 05:09:03 PM  
I think they should make all hard drugs legal and then flood the streets with tons and tons of 100% pure versions of them. The problem will sort itself out.

Chief Wiggum: "Be sure and let everyone know we're finding this new fangled dope with something really bad, like heroin, or unauthorized buttsecks!"

Illinois:  Life in the Fish Bowl


You'd snort rocks too if every two and a half seconds you swam pass a stupid little ceramic castle in garish shades of orange, purple and pink.

Sometimes I think it's the same one over and over again. Look there it goes again! Or may it's a new one.

Hey, rocks! Let's snort them. I'm bored like something that lives in a very small thing of some sort.
 
2014-02-25 05:16:37 PM  
Same thing happened in Bedrock. Mr. Slate is a pusher and Barney's a junkie.
Yabba-dabba don't.

Climie moved into the gravel business, with his brother. Theirs was the place to go for White Dolomite and Canterbury Spur. It was a small but profitable operation, specialised in large driveways. Top of the range was called a "Hadleigh"; so named after the TV series

Now keep this in mind
Fisher hates gravel

Do you people not read TFA?  It's a weird form of meth, and slang-named something stupid, like "bath salts" was.  And you mock them for being dumb?

/Don't get me wrong--Indiana is so friggin' boring I can see the youths trying anything.

FTFA: The drug enforcement administration says 'gravel' is similar to bath salts and has been found to be mixed with meth.

Yeah, no idea what it is. I suppose you might as well go ahead and try it. Probably tastes like candy.

Would you need a cylindrical compression or ASTM slump test?

It's stuff like this that makes me glad the I stick to Krokodil.  Dumbasses.
 
2014-02-25 05:21:23 PM  
At first I thought this said "sorting" gravel. Which worked for me.

Oh, and the geniuses selling this crap are mixing it with meth. As if meth weren't bad enough all by it's lonesome self.
 
2014-02-25 05:22:31 PM  
Bath salts mixed with meth is kind of redundant ain't it?

Bath Salts + Meth sounds like the worst possible thing, ever. Why not just chase it with Krokodil. Flambeed.

vudukungfu: At least they aren't shooting up mayonnaise or smoking banana peels.

Yes, people did that.

Yes people are stupid.

No, they won't change, ever.


Who did that?  Do you know someone who did that.  That was just something put out, to jerk the adults around.  You know Donovan, "Mellow Yellow, & "Electric Banana will be the very next craze".  You were suppose to bake the peel and then scrape the inside material and smoke that.  There were news articles stating that this was what the "drug craze youth" were doing, but, it was just a joke.

I recall seeing stories about the banana peels back in the day. One stories description of the "high" sounded like mild poisoning symptoms. Don't think it killed anyone.

Never heard about the mayo tho. Do you remember what they said it was supposed to do? And if anyone died from doing it?

I also remember stories in the paper one summer about spraying deoderant on cigs to get high. *shudder*

Don't blame the poor people of Indiana. They're just confusing the stuff with a loose meat sandwich.

In my college days back in the 80's I witnessed more than one person smoking banana peel scrapings.  The same dipshiat tried smoking Spanish moss because it was green and just HAD to pack a buzz.  Last time i saw him he answered the door stark naked and cackling like a Disney cartoon witch.  He and his roommate had been huffing pure toluene all day.

Authorities warn of dangerous new drug appearing in the Tri-State

Yes - and there are also people who huff paint, text while driving and fark chickens.   The world is indeed a scary place - but it's not news.

Hmm, I said more than one then went on about a single person.  I did see more than one try but then my memories of Eric the loser came flooding back.

From the article comments:

Parents please read this!

Yeah, parents.  If you find a plastic bag with a powdery or rock-like substance in your kid's backpack they might be using drugs.

If the parents weren't already keeping an eye out for other types of drugs, will this scare them into starting?

Someone always says that in these threads. Implying addicts would all OD and die.  And they're always wrong.

Given consistency of supply, and known quantities/purities, many addicts can live relatively normal lives. Particularly where stuff like heroin is involved.

Meth... well who the hell would do meth if coke was legal and cheap?
