PCP-Laced Pot Was a Factor in Beheading
Camden, New Jersey, was shocked beyond belief in August when a mother decapitated her son and put his head in the freezer. Now, toxicology reports show that she did actually use marijuana that was laced with PCP. Initially, law enforcement agencies speculated that the combined pot and PCP were involved, but the drug reports have come back from the lab and confirmed it. This specific combination of drugs is known as “wet” on the streets, and is gaining in popularity despite a recent rash of violent crime—much of which has involved innocent children.
Drugs are very unpredictable, especially when combined. Whether the drugs in question are PCP, marijuana, bath salts, heroin, meth, cocaine (or crack), or prescription pills, they can make people do things that they normally wouldn’t even dream of doing—including attacking their own children. Though drugs are dangerous on their own, and should not be messed around with, drugs should never ever be combined without instructions from a doctor. The best answer to drug problems and violence is the same as it’s always been: a good schedule of treatment and a caring rehabilitation center.
If you have a problem with drug addiction or dependence, you should seek help before you do something you regret—or worse. Thankfully, there is good help available. Detoxification and behavioral therapy have proven to be effective in treating drug dependence. Addicts are often unable to complete treatment on their own or with family members, so it’s very important to seek the right treatment center.
