After too many close calls with our teens and young adults finding themselves being hospitalized. Rialto Unified Staff, Flores Park Neighborhood Watch, Councilman Shawn O’Connell, Community members and Rialto Police Department partnered together to eliminate the ease of access to Synthetic drugs known under the names “SPICE” or “BATH SALTS” on shelves of local liquor stores and smoke shops.
These drugs are marketed in packaging using cartoon characters and bright colors.
They also reach out by claiming to be manmade Marijuana, but this is far from the truth the chemicals used to create the drug are unregulated and much worse than the very harmful and dangerous Marijuana.
People using this drug for the first time find themselves with symptoms like those in a heart attack patient and find themselves going into cardiac arrest.
Please join us tomorrow Tuesday January 8th at 6:00pm at City Hall city council meeting for the Spice Update – RPD Community Liaison Officer – Cameron Nelson
