Anita Sharrock FYI for anyone with kids. Teresa The following is provided to you and any others in DSDC-F that might have an interest in the information provided below. I know a number of persons in DSDC-F have small children and school age children. Warren ---------- 'fyi' to all with children... ---------- The following was transmitted by e-mail over the military's Internet by Captain William Kraus, an attorney with the Labor Relations Office of the U.S. Air Force. Please disseminate accordingly: "For all of you that have children, regardless of their ages. Please give this your widest possible dissemination. A form of tattoo 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 tattoos resembling postage stamps that have pictures of the ff: 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. They are know to react quickly and some are laced with strychnine. Please feel free to reproduce this article and distribute it within your community and work place. Get the word out about this danger to our children. Please copy and post at your work, give to friends, send a copy to your local schools. This is very serious, young lives have already been taken. This is growing faster than we can warn parents and professionals. Captain William S. Kraus, USAF, Chief Attorney Labor Relations Office
