Congrats Prohibitionist. You insane and immoral policies indirectly led to this young man's death. The legal substances created by man are far, far worse than the drugs they are made to mimic,

Someone must have forced it upon him.

No. The war on drugs lays waste to thousands of peoples loves every day. No one forced drugs on him. He's 19 years old, he knows which end is up. And he knew what he was doing. These synthesized drugs that have broke out onto the scene over the last four years is incredibly abrasive and strange.
For a long time you couldn't even go to a club without hearings sniffs in the bathroom, or go to someone's loft and smell this disgusting odor that could only be compared to pickles or cat piss. I stopped going out. Eventually people did this shit so consistently it made everyone completely insane. I even had a friend who tried to kill herself with a screwdriver because she was so spun on "meow."
Years before "meow," made it's arrival there was a lot of Ex and Molly around, I can't say I was involved with all of it (sometimes a bit of it.) but the parties and clubs were a lot more fun before all that pissy smelling crap blew up on the scene. I've seen this shit destroy a lot of lives.
I will say this though, a lot of the people I know who had problems with meow eventually got over it and were able to move onto better things. It's not completely hopeless.

It's just no surprise that this poor man got so twisted on this insanely harsh drug that he lost control. It is so sad to see this stuff actually happen. I bid him peace and rest.
