Texas 8th Graders Found With New Form of Powerful Meth
HOUSTON - Authorities are conducting a drug probe at a Texas City Middle School after a group of eighth-grade girls was caught with a powerful form of liquid methamphetamines. According to Galveston County Sheriff Henry Trochesset, the drugs were in liquid form and delivered on a type of stamp. Trouchesset said police have not seen the drug in this form and it is so potent that it can be absorbed through the skin simply by touching the stamp.
Authorities said that Tuesday afternoon six girls at Blocker Middle School began acting strangely and were acting zombie-like and somewhat delirious. District officials contacted their parents who took them all to the hospital. They have since been suspended from school.
One parent at the school said, “they’re not all bad girls. I mean one of them I've known for quite some time. I mean I would have never expected it. She didn't seem like a bad girl. She’s always been very sweet, very respectable, very involved in sports.”
Trochesset said the drugs came from "outside the country." Authorities' main objective is to determine who gave the drugs to the girls.
