Growing Use Of Designer Party Pills In Twin Cities

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The newest trend in dangerous drug use in the Twin Cities may be designer party pills.

“They really are forming a new emerging trend,” said Carol Falkowski, the state’s leading expert on illegal drug use.

Falkowski says calls to the Regional Poison Center for psychoactive drugs marketed as bath salts grew from six in 2010 to 26 in the first quarter of this year.

“Just because something is on the Internet — and you can get it on the Internet — doesn’t mean it’s legitimate, legal or safe in any way,” said Falkowski.

Thursday’s six-month update on drug trends in the Twin Cities also finds no real let-up in the use of heroin or prescription drugs.

    And the genius republicans who want to keep throwing money down the black hole called the war on drugs…………just legalize pot for adults already and tax it and move the fu ck on

  3. curly_racks says:

    Prohibition worked great with alcohol, so let us keep wasting trillions on the drug war. Libertarian thought says what a waste!! If you own your body then you should be free to do what you want with it.

    If you can catch a buzz from something, there will be a religious woman from MN starting a committee to ban it, create a series of laws, and criminalize you for it.

    Another terribly written article from Wcco. If it weren’t for the comments I would not bother with their site.
