Thank you for sharing your experience. I have come into contact with a lot of drug users over the years. We usually are not able to determine what is causing their problem as first responders. As you say... some of the people who are violent may be mixing drugs and alcohol, not have a clue about the dosages or mixtures of substances they are taking, suffering from problems from long term usage, or maybe they had violent tendencies to begin with.

Taking drugs for recreation seems to be a dangerous past time. Look at the problems thought to be caused by long term use of the latest teen sensation “lean”, typically a mixture of Arizona Iced Tea Co. watermelon fruit juice cocktail, Skittles, and Robitussin DM or other cough syrups. There are a number of recipes involved. It sounds relatively harmless but people have overdosed and died, and long term use seems to be associated with paranoid and violent behavior.

I’ve seen references to what that Martin kid was drinking but now nieve me is getting the picture....so he probably was drugging himself with this “lean” stuff with arizona tea,skittles for flavoring, and a probable narcotic of some sort...am I right?

You’re welcome Fireman. A little bit of these bath salts will go a long way. I suspect that people assume that since they’re legal,they must be safe and end up snorting a whole gram up their nose. Constant re-dosing will keep someone up for days,which no doubt contributes to psychotic behavior. The compulsion to re-dose is incredible.

From what I gather,a lot of these salts are a synthetic form of khat and they are produced in Russia and China,God knows what else they mix in there.

I’m glad I never got to into the stuff.I’m sorry you have to waste your valuable time and skills on people that do this to themselves
