Celebrating 10 Years of Commitment, Pride, Honor & Success! Date: Sunday, March 29th, 2015 Time: 4:30pm Tickets: $25 per person Place: Dosey Doe, The Big Barn 25911 I-45N. The recent tragic death of a Montgomery County teenager has brought attention to a new threat facing our youth - synthetic LSD. It is one of several hundred designer drugs that have emerged over the past decade. Synthetic LSD, the most recent synthetic drug to make its way into our area, like other synthetic drugs, has proven to be very dangerous because dosages and makeup of the drug may vary widely so users really have no way of knowing what they are ingesting. The name of this drug is 251-NBOMe, and it is known as the N-Bomb since it mimics the LSD that was made popular in the '60s and '70s, but is four times more potent and deadly. The drug is made from a white powder that is turned into a liquid and applied to blotter paper the size of a postage stamp which may feature pictures of cartoon characters like SpongeBob SquarePants or a dancing bear. The odorless, tasteless stamps may appear to be children's stickers. Please talk to your students about the dangers of drugs. For more information, please visit the Conroe ISD Police website at http://police.conroeisd.net/docs/DrugUpdate-March15.pdf If you have information concerning the LSD or any other drug on our campus, please contact the school immediately or call 1-888-kid-Chat.
