Some parents may be worried about their children using marijuana, heroin, or cocaine, but authorities in St. Louis have discovered a drug every bit as dangerous as some of these drugs. However, this drug is sold over the internet. It is a synthetic drug known as "N-Bomb" or "Smiles." This drug is created by manufacturers in China and is similar to LSD. The most dangerous aspect of this drug is that it is perfectly legal. The drug has been linked to deaths across the country and is marketed to children. The drug causes children to hallucinate and can cause severe psychotic episodes.

Many synthetic drugs are sold in tobacco shops and are legal because the properties that make up the drugs are different from the banned drugs such as LSD and heroin. Authorities have previously banned synthetic drugs similar to marijuana, and the Drug Enforcement Agency is racing to stop the flow of this now legal drug from hitting the streets in America. However, undercover police have already purchased this drug in the St. Louis area.

One mother from the area has claimed her fifteen year old daughter was slipped the drug in a drink. She experienced the symptoms of LSD, and the incident caused the girl to be hospitalized. The teenage girl has recovered from the experience, but authorities state that she is very lucky. The girl was slipped the drug during an underage drinking party in Wildwood.

Dangerous drugs cause many problems across the country. Some of these drugs are prescribed by physicians in attempts to treat patients. Other drug related injuries are caused by over the counter drugs. If you or a loved one has been injured by a pharmaceutical company's drug, please contact the law firm of Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC.
