TUCSON - A group of fifth to eighth graders learned about dangerous drugs, including the synthetic "bath salts," during a Tucson Police presentation at La Paloma Academy today.
TPD Lieutenant Mike Pryor and Drug Free Arizona's Amy Bass held a presentation for a group of students at La Paloma's South Campus for Drug Awareness Week, which included an 18-minute video on bath salts.
"The focus was the fact that new drugs are always emerging and drug dealers are starting to get clever with marketing," La Paloma representatives stated in a news release. "They may package the drug in something like a ‘pop rocks candy' container, so kids don't feel like it is dangerous to use when it is packed in a friendly manner."
