Hi Parents,

I am friends with LrL and do not believe this would be sent out as a prank nor without being checked. I have not personally substantiated it, but the topic is too important to ignore out of hand. (LrL lives here in the Silicon Valley.)

Please read and be aware that this COULD be a problem. Take whatever action (if any) you feel is appropriate with your daycare provider / school / children.

Regards,

Ken Forman

WARNING TO PARENTS

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 the pictures of the following:  Superman, Mickey Mouse, Clowns, Disney
Characters, Bart Simpson, Butterflies

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.

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.
