Young Man Killed by Synthetic Drug

Youth loves to experiment, to try new things and see, for themselves, the truth or beauty of things. Some times that works out well when it comes to synthetic drugs, other times it does not. There is a new drug called 25C-NBOMe, one of the phenethylamines, a class of chemicals with many members well known for psychoactive drug and stimulant effects.

One user described his first use in this fashion: “25C-NBOMe is nothing like I set out to find in a psychedelic. It is exploratory, ebullient, clear-headed, rational, euphoric, calming, allows eating and has a mild come-down. . . In short, seeking to find a deeply personal psychedelic I found instead a fun, lighthearted pixie that tinkles and sparkles its way into my heart. 25C-NBOMe has been trialed 4 times so far, and each time the experience has been remarkably consistent.”

The above and the testimonials, with occasional mentions of bad experiences, mentioned on sites such as Erowid, make it sound as though the spirit of the 1960’s, “turn on, tune in, drop out” is still going strong. And perhaps this is so if you are a thinking and planning connoisseur of hallucinogens.

But for a pair of high school boys in Fredericksburg, TX, there was no “fun, lighthearted pixie that tinkles and sparkles its way into my heart.”

Kris Betts, reporting for KVUE News, writes “Samuel Herrera, 16, died Saturday after taking what police are calling a legal drug, 25c-NBOMe. . . Herrera and 17-year-old James Jarreau took the drugs early Saturday morning after buying them from another student, who bought them online.”

Fredericksburg Police Chief Steven Wetz told KVUE, “Just after 3 a.m. Saturday, police were called to the [house] . . . where two young men were reportedly yelling and being destructive. We . . . found one of the kids unconscious, and the other kid was hallucinating severely.”

The two young men had bought the drugs from another student who had gotten them through the Internet. The teen who bought the drugs may have charges filed against him if it is found any illegal substances were sold.

On the Internet everything that could be dangerous and has not yet been outlawed is available – pixies and grim reapers.
