Subject: "Blue Star" Tattoo Hoax
The great LSD tattoo hoax has hit Los Angeles Air Force Base. (It even got onto our homepage -- for about half an hour. It's gone now.) I'm forwarding the version that was sent throughout the base, omitting the names, of course. Thank you for your highly useful web page.

Please read. ---------- From: xxx To: [about 60 names omitted] Subject: FW: Warning to Parents Date: Monday, June 03, 1996 11:01AM fyi ---------- From: xxx To: xxx Date: Monday, June 03, 1996 10:25AM I will take a hard copy of this message to the CDC, please pass this info on to the rest of parents on your distro list. Thank you. ---------- For ALL of you that have children... regardless of their ages. Please give this your widest possible dissemination: A form of Tatoo called "Blue Star" is being sold to school children. It is a small piece of paper containing a blue star. They are the size of a pencil eraser, and each star is soaked with LSD. THE DRUG IS ABSORBED THROUGH THE SKIN SIMPLY BY HANDLING THE PAPER. There are also brightly colored paper tatoos resembling postage stamps that have the pictures of the following: Superman, Mickey Mouse, clowns, Disney Characters, Bart Simpson, Butterflies, etc. EACH ONE IS WRAPPED IN FOIL. THIS IS A NEW WAY OF SELLING ACID BY APPEALING TO YOUNG CHILDREN! THEY ARE LACED WITH DRUGS! If your child gets any of the above, do not handle them. These are known to react quickly and some are laced with STRYCHNINE.

This is very serious, young lives have already been taken. This is growing faster than we can warn parents and professionals. Janice M.
