    latest drug craze in Britain, injecting shampoo

    http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/tm...name_page.html

    DRUG addicts who can't get their hands on heroin are injecting anti-dandruff shampoo instead.

    Junkies have been raiding chemist shops desperate for their next fix.

    Drug workers say they boil up the shampoo to extract the ethanol and then pump it into their veins to get high.

    The sick craze was only picked up after a spate of shampoo thefts from shops.

    Staff at Boots in Seaham, County Durham, couldn't understand why addicts were clearing shelves of Head and Shoulders.

    But a user confessed to a drug worker that the latest craze was to boil it up and inject it like heroin.

    Tony Pendelbury, of the North East Council of Addictions, said: "Ethanol is not a good thing to be inserting into your veins.

    "We know the shampoo thing started in Glasgow and it's now made it's way down here."

    Last night, Boots said they weren't aware of shampoo being stolen by drug users and couldn't comment on the issue

    Maybe I missing something, but why not just buy straight ethanol?
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    I guess drug addicts (at least the types who inject chemicals taken from shampoo) do not think logically. Imagine that!

    Can we say that a person who injects chemicals from Head & Shoulders shampoo is a bit "flaky"?
    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    I know I guy who used to shoot up back in the early 1970's, but I'm not sure what- it wasn't heroin, I think it was speed. He is completely clean now, but he said sometimes when he couldn't find anything he would heat peanut butter in a pan and shoot up the liquid that would form. I don't haqve proof he did it, as I didn't know him then, but he hasn't to my knowledge ever lied to me.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    Pam grew up and became more responsible. She has a husband and a couple kids now, so the wild days are a thing of the past.
