This article came to my attention, and whether it is true or not, I thought that its content was serious enough that it warranted posting.

   Drug pushers are now using a "new" way of selling drugs to children!
   This is not a joke this is a serious warning to parents.

                             ********************
                              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.
