The new “breeds” of drugs, even more addictive! Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…
The Zhongzhen University hosted its Prevention of Adolescent Drug Abuse seminar yesterday, the district attorney from Kaohsiung D.A.’s Office, Gu pointed out, that the mix-type of drugs in the coffee pouches was ranked third on the student addictions in 2017, two years ago and last, these rose up to second, right after ketamine, strongly recommended the schools and the police start collaborating together, to rid the drugs off of the campuses.
Gu stated, that the police confiscated over 100,000 drug coffee pouches, the highest since 2012, and that there were the level three, level four new age drugs mixed into the mixtures, based off of the estimates of the coroners’ office, there was a hike in drug-related deaths last year during fourth quarter, as many as forty-two cases, and in just first quarter this year, there’d been forty-two cases, and the number grew to fifty-six by second quarter, and in just July and August, there were, twenty-eight cases.
She’d pointed out, that the drug drip-coffee packs often had the second level controlled substances PMMA, third level controlled substances mephedrone, Erimin, taking one pack doesn’t do a thing, but if the user took multiple packs, and combined with ketamine, the users are more than likely to overdose and die, from January of last to September of this year, there are already 120 who’d died of overdose, of them, sixty-three were from twenty to twenty-nine years of age.
She said, that the age group of using level three to four controlled substances are mostly those between eighteen and twenty-four, thirty-five percent; and, there’s, a lowered age of first-time users, there were 1,878 persons who’d started abusing the drugs for the first time in the ages between eighteen and twenty-four.
Because the schools feared being labeled, it’s hard to crack down on the drugs infiltrating the campuses, Gu suggested, that the school should file the reports with the school safety committee, then, the committee then send the reports anonymously to the police departments locally.
And so, because you don’t want the reputations of your schools ruined, you are more than likely to under report the citing, and this is not good, because if you don’t report the right numbers, the numbers are just going to, increase by the day, because the law enforcement agencies can’t step in on time!
