GALVESTON, TX — A new type of illicit drug has been found on a Texas middle school campus.
Investigators with the Galveston County Sheriff’s office believe small paper stamps found Monday at Blocker Middle School had been soaked in liquid methamphetamine and then placed in foil.
According to the sheriff’s office, the drug is ingested by placing the stamp on the tongue and allowing it to dissolve.
Six eighth grade girls have been suspended and now face further disciplinary action.
A letter was sent home Thursday afternoon, notifying parents of the situation and encouraging them to talk to their students about the dangers of drugs.
“This is new to us. It’s surprising. But we’re going to educate ourselves and educate parents and students,” said Tortorici.
