Just find a douche bag with the nick name Hippie who is a drug dealer in Bangor Maine. He not only sells bath salts but he injects it and smokes it according to people I know. He has a criminal history of drugs and alcohol and has been known for an explosive temper. He can act calm and friendly one minute and then SNAP like a psycho the next. He's a skinny guy about 165 lbs, 5'8" or 5'9", Caucasian, usually wears a European style tweed looking cap, I think he has blue eyes (but not sure), he has dreadlocks that he wears up under his cap, and he braids his goatee, he also has facial piercings, and carries a knife. Sometimes wears camouflage pants and a ratty looking jacket, he carries a backpack around with drugs and cash in it. He's been seen hanging around Ohio St., also the Kendusgeak Footbridge (where families take their kids to walk and some local business employees go to take smoke breaks), also seen on Spring St. just off Harlow St., and sometimes up around Garland St. and Essex. A friend of mine and I saw him downtown once tweaking out and yelling while he was hitting himself in the head, however NOBODY was near him. It was like he was yelling at himself or perhaps hallucinating. Anyway, if he has a history of mental illness, anger issues, drug & alcohol issues, and he's doing bath salts that makes him extremely dangerous and unpredictable. A couple homeless people we know also said that this Hippie character usually stays at the Hope House (a homeless shelter in Bangor) where he's been seen acting strange and has also been kicked out for disruptive behavior. We are guessing that this is a guy that is either homeless or often loses places he lives at. Maybe gets evicted for one reason or another. Not sure what his real name is only that he goes by the nick name Hippie which is ironic considering that a Hippie is someone who is usually calm, laid back, and peaceful, whereas this guy is a sketchy major drug dealer with an explosive temper, who sells and uses bath salts (which some people have been calling Monkey Dust but it is not the same thing). I don't do drugs and I have cut ties with friends who I found out do drugs. One sure fire sign that someone in your apartment building is doing drugs or anybody on the street is when you see them talking to Hippie. Anyway, he's a skinny little dude emaciated by the lack of nutrition and drug abuse however if he is agitated and tweaking out on bath salts he can and will be violent. I'm not sure what mental illness he has but seeing him wig out like that makes him look like he is psychotic, schizophrenic, or has some other serious mental illness. The reason I am posting this here is to encourage other people to report this guy if they see him acting suspicious and/or selling drugs. If we pull together we can stop criminals from hurting other people with violence and drugs in the Bangor area. I personally don't ever talk to this guy, nor do I know where he is. And anytime I happen to see him I avoid him entirely. You should not approach him if you see him acting suspiciously or selling drugs no matter how pleasant his nature may seem. You should report his suspicious activity to the police right away. Do not try to talk to him because he can go from being nice one second to being extremely angry in just a matter of seconds.
