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 L.S.D.

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 picture of one of the following:
Superman                 Mickey Mouse              Clowns
Disney Characters     Bart Simpson                Butterflies

Each is wrapped in foil.

This is a new way of selling acid by appealing to young children.  These 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.

Symptoms:  Hallucinations, severe vomiting, uncontrolled laughter, mood
changes, change in body temperature.
