Dangerous Synthetic Drug Now in Wichita

     WICHITA, Kan.  -  A new drug is being used in Wichita schools, and it’s killing kids across the country. It’s called “N-bomb,” or “smiles.”  KAKE News reports that it started at Heights High School earlier this week when a student went to the school resource officer, tipping him off to students using the deadly new drug.
     “N-bomb,” “smiles,” “25-I” – it’s a new synthetic drug being sold as LSD.  But the effects are stronger and deadly, and Wichita police say it has made its way to our schools.
    A student’s tip led police to a duplex near East Harry and Hillside.  Investigators arrested three people, including Raul Gonales from California, and Angel Lopez.  Inside the home, police found meth, guns, thousands of dollars in cash, and the drug, N-bomb.
     The drug has killed dozens of teens across the country, including a 14-year-old from Kansas City two weeks ago.
    “It's a synthetic drug that's coming on the scene--a potentially harmful drug,” said Wichita Police Lt. Doug Nolte. “Kids are taking it and not understanding what it can do to you."
     Police say they are seeking federal charges in this case. In the meantime, they are asking parents to talk to their students about the situation.

What is it made of, basically are they making it at home? How can you tell if someone took it, smoked, injecting, swallowing? How long are the affects. How can we eradicate it before it blankets all the areas of the city, then heads to the smaller cities near Wichita. I feel as a medical professional we just don't know as much as law enforcement. I'm sure there's not even a lab test that can identify it in the urine, or bloodstream. Feeling frustrated with lack of core knowledge, with all street drugs, how can we help when were uneducated in the street smarts to assess those at risk.

More Information
The NBOMe series of chemicals are primarily N-o-methoxybenzyl analogs of the 2C-X family of phenethylamines, and are 5-HT2A (serotonin 2A) receptor agonists. A few are amphetamine analogs. With few exceptions (e.g. mescaline-NBOMe), compounds in this group are active at verly low sub-milligram doses. These chemicals have nearly no history of human use prior to 2010 when they first became available online.

Lets not broadcast the ingredients
Posting the ingredients only makes for more meth heads to make it.

Educator who wants to know more
How does someone react to taking the drug? Knowing the effects would be helpful to know and what to look for if a student has taken it.
