FACT & FICTION
Collier County Sheriff's Office in Naples, Florida has
confirmed issuing this internal bulletin on September
26, 2007. However, Sheriff's deputies admit they know
of no confirmed instances of Jenkem use in their
jurisdiction, and when WINK-TV News questioned
several students at a local high school, all said they had
never heard of the substance, let alone tried it.
Reports from other sources confirm possible use in
other jurisdictions.
Salvia divinorum
Salvia
Diviner’s sage
Maria Pastora
Sage of seers

FACT

in several forms.

together and chewed, while

Drunk
Tampons
FACT
Tampons soaked in vodka and inserted vaginally or
rectally (in females and males)
Results in a faster high as the unprotected mucous
membranes absorb the alcohol more quickly
Very popular in Europe and South America, especially
Columbia. The Council has responded to an incident
involving a Houston girl at a local high school.
DUSTING
FACT
Dusting is a form of huffing or inhalant abuse,
specifically the use of canned, aerosolized computer
keyboard cleaner containing compressed gas
Butt Chug
FACT
Buttchug, Niles, Beer Enema, Beer Funnel,
The Derelicts
Consumption of beer/alcohol rectally, using a funnel and
tube (beer bong) to administer the alcohol as an enema.
Alcohol administered as an enema has 3x the effect of
alcohol taken orally.
While there are YouTube videos of youth doing this, The
Council is not aware of any reported incidents in Houston,
Tx, to date.
EXTREMELY DANGEROUS
Purple Stuff / Drank
FACT
Syrup, Sizzurp, Lean, Drank, Barre, and Purple Jelly
Soft drink mixed with prescription-strength
cough syrup containing codeine and
promethazine (or OTC cough syrup with
dextromethorphan)
Promoters developed a legal soft drink
version with natural herbs that promote
relaxation: Rosehips, Valerian Root, and
either L-Theanine, or Melatonin.
Both the legal drink or illegal version come in
a variety of flavors – in the illegal version, the
addition of a Jolly Rancher candy to a cup of
purple drank creates a spectrum of colors,
“Rainbow Colors.”
Popular in rap and hip hop music.
Smoking Alcohol
FACT
Alcohol is poured over dry ice causing an alcohol
vapor
Users inhale the vapor, delivering alcohol directly to
the lungs
Users have a more rapid and intense buzz

Strawberry
Quik
FACT
To combat the bitter taste
of methamphetamines,
some cooks are adding
flavoring that gives the
drug a strawberry flavor
and turns its trademark
crystals bright pink.
Pantene Angel
Pantene brand shampoo contains
an additive that when injected will
get the user high
FICTION
Poppy Seed Tea
FACT
Mistakenly considered to be a “healthy” alternative for a pain reliever,
sleep aid, cough suppressant, an intoxicant, and/or a mild relaxant.
Poppy seeds can be purchased at grocery stores and health food
stores. Poppy pods can be purchased at hobby and craft stores.
Highly addictive. Potency of poppy pods varies dramatically from one
variety to another and from one crop to the next, which has resulted in
overdose and deaths.

Spice, Spice Gold
FACT
Spice is a brand name for a mixture of herbs as an incense, as
well as over the Internet as a "herbal smoking blend." It is
usually smoked for its cannabis-like effects which are believed to
be caused by a mixture of synthetic cannabinoid drugs. Several
different "flavours" of Spice have been marketed which have
been shown to contain different proportions of the synthetic
cannabinoid active ingredients, and reportedly produce subtly
different effects.
