Ok, I'm familiar with what bath salts are but I've heard alot of talk about gravel and ice in the news or people getting arrested with this stuff. What the heck is it? Are they revised versions of salts? I've watched some YouTube videos of people on bath salts and I've got to say it is horrifying and hilarious at the same time. Why in the world would anyone want to feel like that???

I don't want to use these drugs, I just want to know what they are! This isn't a subliminal post trying to cop something lol. I have kids that are older and I'm sure are going to encounter this crap at some point. I would just like to be in the know of what all these terms are and what the attraction is to what appears to be a terrifying and tortured high!

Why all these variations of the same old stuff that's been circulating for decades? From one article I saw on gravel, it sure didn't sound like they were talking about crack! I've seen some pretty rough looking crackheads in my day but the photos of the people they showed, literally looked like they should have been in caskets. Oh isn't there something called krokodile or something that literally eats away your flesh? I guess its a problem in Russia. Won't be long until its epidemic here too I'm sure. I found a sippy cup made into a crack pipe on the side of the road by the elementary school and a bunch of tossed syringes on the church lawn right by the ballfield one morning when I was walking. I'm not from this area and was raised in the city so up until that point I was pretty oblivious to the drug problem in Greene county

Seriously, this isn't rocket science. If somebody tests positive for "gravel" or "krokodile", cut off that person's supply to food. Eventually the problem will resolve itself.
Another thing we ought to do is donate to Ron Ramsey and see that he gets the state legislature to pass broader Stand Your Ground laws that protect citizens who fight back and defend themselves.
In Florida, their SYG law states that if you suspect another person of committing criminal activity, you can intervene to stop them (even if not on your property), and if you become threatened you can employ lethal force as necessary without any obligation to back down.
That's what we need right here in Greeneville and hawkins County. Laws which let citizens take matters into their own hands and protect themselves.
Citizens need to wake up. The cops aren't going to solve the drug problem. It is up to people like you and me to take a stand.
Not trying to troll your statement because it sounds like a really good idea, but isn't Florida the state that showed the nation how to Dr shop and how to setup pain pill mills?

I absolutely agree with testing for benefit assistance but then children who are within these households suffer the consequences of someone elses addiction. Pulling every child from a positive drug test family is unrealistic with an already inadequate system. So what is really the best remedy? I'm really not sure. Mandatory treatment for an unwilling addict with be another expense on the state that will likely be ineffective and costly.
I'm unfamiliar with SYG law, so before I can give an educated opinion, I will be doing some research but just my initial thought is SYG law can turn messy quickly when we all have differing matters of perspective. Situations can escalate and what happens when innocent people fall victim just because they were in close proximity. Don't get me wrong, I'm certainly not completely opposed to this, but I think there would have to be black and white terms with no gray area to this type of action.
The ball has been dropped when it comes to the war on drugs, but that isn't an accidental failure. Drugs are big business and the elimination of drugs would hurt all the companies and organizations that profit and benefit from an addict!

The problem is these freaks out here want to get completely out of their minds. What happened to just taking a few hits off a twist, drinking a couple Buds and just chilling out? No one wanted to get completely stone wasted all the time, we just wanted to chill and have a good time. Sometimes I miss those days.:)

The drug problem here in Greeneville and Greene County is outrageous. Every day there is a new death due to overdosing.

Gravel is a different type of bathsalts,they call it that because it is more course,like little sharp rocks and they claim it feels like gravel going thru the veins when injected.

Wow, I guess this really goes to show how a chemically dependent mind is so off the grid from reality and rational thinking that they would do anything for that fleeting high. Very sad and scary.
