SCARY STUFF..



**Warning…some of the things talked about in this blog are not very nice…they’re TRUE, but awful as well… just thought I better let you know so you can just skip this post if you’re easily disturbed.



I don’t know about you guys/girls out there, but I know that since I have had children and become a Mumma, I’m never too short of things to worry about…….especially when it comes to my children’s safety/wellbeing.

Well, Yesterday, I just happened to hear a news report about a new drug that’s doing the rounds overseas, and is becoming quite worrying for police/security and those having to deal with it.  And the more I read/watched videos, the more I began to worry for my children, but for ANY children…in fact anyone that is around this drug or those taking it.

They are Synthetic drugs, such as Mephedrone are the new “designer drugs” and they’re being sold on the streets under the name “Bath Salts”…the ingredients are LEGAL!!

Now I don’t usually get too worked up about this kind of thing, but the more and more I researched them, the more terrifying it became.

People under the influence of “Bath Salts” manifest in a way that I can only describe as “possessed”….it has been labeled the “Zombie drug”  They’re quite scary, and cannot be reasoned with.  Apparently Police say that the scary thing about this is that even people who are small/petite get out of control, they have tried to use the taser on “out of control” users, but have found they have to be tased at least 7 or 8 times before it becomes effective enough to do anything with them.  It has taken up to 10 police officers at times to be able to contain the drug user…….they become violent, and an underlying theme with those under the influence is cannibalism….   There was a recent case in the international news about a man who ate the face off a homeless guy.  Horrendous stuff!  Frightening stuff.

There are videos all over the net of people in a “Zombie” state, after having used “bath salts”.  Not just of them at home, but in the streets, on trains, in amongst the general public………. How scary is that?

I used to worry about the damage a pit bull could do if it escaped into the public, but to be honest, this new drug  ….. and its users being free to wander among people…among US, and our children, and our friends and loved ones!.. I find just as scary, if not scarier!

Do you think I’m being “over the top” , or do you also find this really scary too?

  1. TRULY scary- wow. I think the most awful thing is that the drug changes the brain permanently. I pray that this drug does not become epidemic here!

  2. It's been around for a while. I've been reading lots about it online and it's getting more press time here in NZ now. It's more frightening than most other drugs to me and I am hoping that there will be more educational opportunities offered to children to limit the use of drugs.

    It worries me...

    1. I HATE the thought of it being around..and readily available... yuck! I had heard a little about it before, but it wasn't until yesterday I heard a radio interview with someone who had been using it whilst living overseas....

  3. Why do people want to even here!!?? It grieves me to think that people are so desperate for something to give them a buzz/change in life - praying that more and more will come to realize that only God can fill the gap.

    Drugs are so evil - I HATE the enemy for the pleasure he gets from seeing lives destroyed.

    1. Oh my gosh Rachel I am so sorry to hear that. How awful...how scarily awful! I mean drugs etc have always freaked me out, but when I saw/heard some stories about it, it really terrified me. (obviously enough for me to actually blog about!). You know the sad thing, is that they tracked one guy who manufactured the stuff...and he was such a well to do young guy, and even he said there is no way in hell he would TOUCH the stuff as he had seen the way it had messed up peoples lives. It's evil dudes like this that need to be taken off the streets! We need to get the message out to as many people as possible. I have seen young relatives of mine even, posting about it on facebook like it's FUNNY... but it is far from funny. All the best to you Rachel, you and your family xx
