Drone IV Citing

Drone IV was cited wreaking havoc in Bangor, Maine and leading to a variety of psychological and mental problems such as manic behavior, delusions, paranoia, hallucinations, hyperactivity, nightmares, violence and suicidal depression. Drones in the Borg are wired up to do what they’re told.  Those who don’t flip out or rebel are likely to be in a compliant form. This goes for drones in the B’org of Food offices as well.

I came across the news 0f 1 August 2011 in the Bangor Daily News that Maine police chief sees a crisis in abuse of bath salts. This caught my eye because I couldn’t imagine the police worrying about people dumping too much Dead Sea salts or Epsom salts into their baths or even doing it too often, and I wondered what it was all about. So I did a search online and the first clue I got was a product called Drone IV, aka Snow Blow, Ivory Wave now rebranded as Vanilla Sky, Snowberry, Charge+, Blowout, White, Hurricane Charlie, White Gold, Dusted, F1, Toot, Star Dust, Space Dust, Raz, Shake & Vac, Purple Wave and Ivory Coast. Other names are Aura, Blue Silk, Bonzai Grow, Euphoria, Lovey Dovey, Ocean, Pixie Dust, Red Dove, Scarface, White Dove, White Girl, and White Lightning. Bath salts are a designer drug that supposedly are to replace cocaine and methadone. The ploy is to advertise them for your bath and not for consumption to circumvent the law which, nonetheless, is in the process of trying to catch up. Drone IV is now banned in Maine, but with all the varieties out there, it would be hard to know what is going on.

Basically what I found out is that bath salts contain a synthetic drug manufactured from cathinone which is derived from the African shrub called khat. Cathinone is chemically similar to amphetamines, cocaine and ecstasy, but the side-effects seem to be more drastic. The presumption seems to be that most bath salts are made with MDPV, or methylenedioxypyrovalerone, but mephedrone (aka meph, MC, MCAT, m-cat, 4-MMC, Miaow, Meow Meow, Bubbles, Bounce, Charge, Drone, White Magic) and methylone seem to be common derivatives as well, and there is a whole slew more as shown in a table on the Europa website and the above cited thread. As is usually the case with non-prescription drugs, there is no way to be sure what is in them unless you personally get them tested. However, it is getting to the point where you wouldn’t know exactly what is in any drug because of nano-technology and genetic modification which are becoming more and more prevalent.

There is an interesting Times News timeline for MDPV which includes a patent for MDPV in 1969 by Boehringer Ingelheim, one of the top 20 leading pharmaceutical companies in the world with sales in the UK of £397.5 million in 2010. But whether you feel more assured that this company was in control of the formulation or don’t care if a back street chemist in China made it, is entirely up to you. I wouldn’t trust either with my well-being.

People have died from bath salts and lost their minds, but this is nothing new as it happens every day with prescriptions. However, bath salts seem to be especially quick to destroy. It would be good to see our culture change away from the need to pop a pill, snort powders, poke with needles, drink potions, and smoke in order to feel good.

The next news article in the Bangor Daily news was almost as sad and directly involves the B’org of Food and ties in with Drone IV. It’s about McDonald’s sponsoring a golf tournament with net proceeds going towards a new Children’s Cancer & Treatment Center at Eastern Maine Medical Center's CancerCare of Maine. It’s sad to think that there is a need for a special treatment centre just for children with cancer. It’s sad also because the food served in McDonald’s could very well be contributing to the increase in this disease, and I think it is. And, it’s sad because the reason McDonald’s is so successful and able to sponsor events such as this is that many people are easily roped into their cheap, crap food because they’re high on Drone IV or a myriad of other drugs and/or medications that keep them from thinking straight and eating properly. I think it would be particularly sad if they served McDonald’s food at the treatment centre. Sorry to leave you on this sad note, but this article really is about lots of very sad people -all victims of the B’org of Food.
