The Shepherd: New Dug Frenzy Invades the Streets

South Africans were shocked when the horror blood-sharing drug called Bluetooth hit the streets. 

Thereafter, is was smoking dead people's ashes - but now, kids as young as seven years old are getting trapped by another evil drug.

And it seems these young possessed minds are always innovative when it comes to destructing their precious lives.
New Drug has Hit the Streets 

This time it’s “shepherd”, a mix of pen ink, mealie-meal and paraffin – the latest crazy drug to hit the streets of Cosmo City, west of Johannesburg. 

Angry parents said the kids had to be stopped. “We hear that there’s an older pupil who is teaching our children how to make the drug,” said a concerned parent.

Community patrollers in Cosmo City told Daily Sun that more than 30 kids are believed to be smoking the drug at a primary school in the area.

“It is worrying to see kids as young as seven smoking the drug. What does the future have in store for them if they start at this young age? We are deeply worried,” said community patroller Fire Morowane. An adult showed Daily Sun how the drug is made.

The kids spread the ink and mix it with mealie-meal, paraffin and wrap it like a zol. They then strike a match, smoke it and quickly get high.

Daily Sun spoke to a parent whose two children smoke the drug. “I tried to talk to them but you never know what they’ll do when you are not with them,” said the parent.

“We appeal to parents to always watch their children’s behaviour. When they start, they become aggressive and disobedient,” said a patroller.

Morowane said they planned a parents’ meeting in the community to discuss the problem of drugs. Gauteng Education spokesman Steve Mabona said: “The department is highly concerned about the allegations of substance abuse at a primary school.

“We will dispatch officials to investigate claims. The investigation’s outcome will determine what steps should be taken by those involved.” - Daily Sun
