Keeping Kids Healthy and Safe

Smarties and Pixy Stix are the new gateway drugs. These dangerous substances are now illegal at a middle school in Michigan because kids are “smoking” them. The school principal has noted that “huge amounts” of smarties wrappers are being found on school grounds, and this ban is for the purpose of keeping kids “healthy and safe.”

The Wall Street Journal recently published a piece, “Just Say No…… to Smarties?” which talks about the fad to smoke and snort any candy that can be conveniently crushed.

Others have perfected the art of blowing Smarties smoke rings; some can even exhale through their nose. Children don’t inhale the powder or try to get it into their lungs; they pour it into their mouths and exhale quickly, causing a cloud of fine dust to emerge.

Kids also snort from Kool Aid packets. From a recent Yahoo article on this topic: “Quite possibly the most talked about danger of this type of imitative behavior in teens and children is that it could be a “gateway” to other riskier behavior such as smoking cigarettes or marijuana or snorting drugs like cocaine.” Fox & Friends even talked to the kid your mother warned you about.

The real ban should be public schools. Kids – especially boys – are not being challenged in these collectivist, politically correct, monotonous, feminized, dumbing-down prison camps. These kids – who have grown up with the usual boredom relievers such as video games, shopping malls, phones, and other amusement devices – are bored, uninspired, and passionless, and their creativity is being misdirected toward non-productive and problematic activities. The combination of public schools and the adolescent adults (whose own individualism was stifled by the state’s education camps) who raise them is a no-win situation for some of these kids. Thanks to Christofer Evangelista for the tip.

    When nearly half of people in Detroit have trouble reading, it seems time to observe that government provision of goods and services ( socialism ) reduces the quality and drives up the costs. Why not separate government and school entirely?

    Actually the “new” gateway drugs had to be the white candy and chocolate cigarettes we all had when we were kids. It’s no wonder that we have such an epidemic of smokers today that we have to legislate where they can an cannot engage in that unlawful activity! Pretty soon M&Ms will be outlawed because they encourage underage sexual activity due to the iron-clad fact that the green ones make you horny!
