Those of our readers who may not be hip to the latest drugs polluting our communities may have never heard of Flakka. This is the new “zombie drug” that’s being imported from China and sold on our streets. Although this video by anti-drug and anti-corruption activist Chaz Stevens is a lighthearted look at the dangers of this drug, the message is clear: this is some foul stuff.
I’m fairly sympathetic to drug addicts and believe in the conservative Right on Crime movement. However, the Legislature needs to pass legislation this session to specifically address Flakka.
