    Candy Meth is a Sweet Myth

    Candy Meth is a Sweet Myth

    A bill was proposed for three years in a row, from 2007 to 2009 called 'Saving Kids From Dangerous Drugs Act'. The bill never got anywhere every time it was proposed and here's why. First of all the bill enhanced regular drug dealing penalties for anyone who manufactures, creates, distributes, or possesses with intent to distribute a controlled substance that is flavored, colored, packaged or otherwise altered in a way that is designed to make it more appealing to a person under 21 years of age, or who attempts or conspires to do so.

    How The Candy Meth Reports Got Started

    There were many reports in 2007 that drug dealers were trying out new marketing strategies in order to get kids and young people to use meth. USA Today expose a DEA spokesperson said that there was a candy flavored meth that you could get in several different states called strawberry meth. What was being said was that this candy flavored meth was available in strawberry, chocolate, cola and other flavors of soda. It was also said that a red meth was marketed in a powdered form of energy drink. Strawberry Quick was one of the names given to the candy flavored meth everyone was talking about.

    Of course this was worrisome, to think that drug dealers were trying to lure young children into trying meth by making it candy flavored would upset anyone. As stated above, this bill never got anywhere, because the strawberry flavored meth could never be found. Candy flavored meth was just a myth or a hoax and fortunately the stuff never existed.
