Cocaine out….Ketamine in!

Today I learned that the cost of cocaine has skyrocketed in the last year. It may have been as much as a 100% increase. As a result, a new kid has come into town and its name is ketamine. No,  I have  no personal knowledge of this but people who know the street brought this info to the office today and wanted to make sure I learned the new lingo about this cheaper product: Special K, kit kat, cat tranquilizers, vitamin K etc.

Ketatmine is way cheaper than cocaine, attracts less attention than the cocaine supply chain (until now!), and is more easily attained via veterinary-related substances. With a few simple little science lab experiments a liguid can be turned into powder and then snorted or sniffed or whatever one does to injest it.

The Hamilton Spectator claims that it’s affecting kids in Hamilton, lots of them. And, because it’s a powder soluable in liquid, it’s often used as a date rape drug. Watch your drinks!

Grateful for:

  • a great CALL day with a wonderful literacy focus and excellent discussions
  • wonderful colleagues and educators who carefully planned relevant learning for us today

Curious about:

  • how to combat generational poverty
