Decriminalising drugs is all the rage or so it would seem so I thought I’d tell this story from the angle of ‘Sonia The Cleaner’. Sonia is thirty six years old and is raising four children ages eleven, fourteen, fifteen and twenty one. Sonia lives on the Stonebridge Estate in London, her children attend a very good comprehensive school run by dedicated teachers and her two youngest children are doing very well at school.
Not so the oldest, her grades have suddenly dropped, school attendance has become sporadic and at home she suffers from mood swings. There is one other pretty significant problem, she can disappear for days at a time and when she reappears for any length of time a much older male teenager turns up with her.
Sonia is confused, she’s checked her daughter’s room and apart from tons of ‘bath salts’ there are no other unusual elements in her daughter’s room. There are also no smells which might indicate that her daughter has a drugs problem, she simply can’t put her finger on it. There is one other thing though, and that is her daughter’s new friends way of moving, there is what one might call a deftness to his physical movements which seem slowed down and almost disconcertingly hypnotic when he is around her daughter. In fact she notices that when he is around there is a distinct alteration to her daughters moods & behaviour.
Now, I don’t doubt that taking legal highs can be tremendous fun, but I’ve watched people have seizures because of these drugs and wind up in serious debt because of these drugs, drugs which are supposedly harmless which is why they are currently legal. Drug dealers have moved themselves off the streets and now can run ‘head shops’ selling drugs like Spice & Black Mamba because there is currently no law preventing them from doing so. Because these drugs are legal there is plenty of money to be made by ‘professional’ men raising their own families whilst destroying & in quite a few cases prostituting & enslaving vulnerable members of other people’s families.
Ambulance staff and police officers find their hands full of people who having taken these drugs have had serious seizures or wound up dead, and yet these drugs are legal. Then there is the issue of money.Spice has become infamous because of it’s highly addictive nature and the withdrawal effects which are not dissimilar to those of Crack. It takes a lot of money to maintain a drugs habit this addictive, and since these drugs are being aimed at and taken mainly by the youth where’s this money going to come from? Prostitution?
Thieving? Drug dealing to other teenagers? A lot of youth are winding up homeless because of some of these ‘legal’ highs so, as in Poole, Dorset, I suspect many will wind up resorting to prostitution (initially) then once they get a bit of cash they’ll turn to dealing.
There’s a thing in Poole when it comes to trying to work out whether a young person has taken to prostitution, legal highs you see usually contain ‘hypnotic drug elements’ therefore once taken, a semi-trance-like state has been voluntarily entered into by the drug user. With frequent use it might be added, this state becomes a semi-permanent thing.This you can unscrupulously make use of, if you know a bit about hypnotic techniques such as ‘sleight of mouth’ or covert hypnosis. In Poole, if you want to work out whether a homeless young female is on the game try a little ‘covert hypnosis’ if it works then they’ve very likely found a means of supporting their drug habit.
Back to Sonia the cleaner whose fifteen year old daughter wound up in hospital after having a severe seizure, happily the nurses who treated her discovered a half empty pack of ‘bath salts’ in her jacket and were able to make the connection and treat her condition successfully. With the help of Sonia’s brother (a London based stockbroker), Sonia and her family have since moved to Poole in Dorset ( not everyone in Poole is a junkie!), her daughter is currently studying for her ‘A’ Levels at Bournemouth & Poole College. Sonia raised her daughter (using the direct non-hypnotic technique of parenting) to become a doctor, and it seems very likely that that is what she will now become.
