Teenager High on the Legal Drug Salvia throws Baby to the Floor

Posted by PITHOCRATES - July 7th, 2013

Week in Review

A lot of people say marijuana is no different than enjoying a few beers.  At least, those who want to decriminalize it.  And, no, they say, decriminalizing marijuana will not encourage more adults to use it.  Or kids.  For kids are too busy doing their homework and doing chores around the house for Mom and Dad to be thinking about getting high.  Throwing up the ‘what about the children’ argument is just a red herring.  Only responsible adults are interested in getting high.

So you won’t see any difference in our children’s behavior when we go from marijuana being illegal to being legal.  And very accessible (see Legal high warning after baby is grabbed out of pram and thrown to floor ‘by teenager who’d smoked Salvia’ by Paul Cockerton posted 7/5/2013 on the Mirror).

A teenager who had taken a legal high grabbed a baby out of a buggy and threw it to the floor today.

Police said a woman in the street with her child saw a man apparently in some distress and went over to talk to him.

He then grabbed the baby, threw it on the floor then left the scene in Newbiggin, Northumberland at around 3.20pm…

Northumbria Police later said another teenager was in hospital having smoked a cigarette which contained a substance called Salvia.

That boy, a pupil at Ashington High School, was in a stable condition having collapsed.

The force said the 16-year-old who was arrested on suspicion of assaulting an infant in nearby Newbiggin had taken the same substance.

Hmmm.  Seems like some kids are getting high.  Marijuana is illegal so they get high with something that is legal.  Salvia.  Which made one kid physically assault a baby.  And put another kid in hospital.  Something few people do after a couple of beers.  Of course, some will blame the Salvia.  And say had these kids smoked marijuana they would have just gotten silly like that Spicoli kid in Fast Times at Ridgemont High.  (Warning: The following movie clip shows naked women in Playboy centerfolds in the background).

But the point is this.  Kids want to get high.  They use Salvia because it’s legal and easy to buy.  But they’d rather have marijuana.  Like Spicoli.  And once it’s no longer illegal they’ll find a way to get their hands on it.  Because these kids want to get high.  As proven by their use of Salvia.  Ignoring this fact will put a lot of our kids onto the path of further drug use.  Abuse.  And addiction.  As they start chasing the dragon.  Trying to find a better high.  And the easier it is to start their drug addiction the worse their drug addiction will be.
