Dangerous New Drug Trend - "Moonwalking"

    In the wake of Micheal "The King of Pop" Jackson's recent passing, it is more than his record sales reaching all new highs. A disturbing trend amongst young Americans can be attributed to the mass amounts of press detailing the icon's lethal pharmaceutical cocktails. The kids call it "Moonwalking," the experience of getting high on propofol, the hypnotic agent attributed to Jackson's death.

    "It's a real groovy trip," says Brittney, a senior at DeLaSalle High School in Minneapolis, MN. Speaking only under a pseudonym, Brittney says that classmates have been experimenting with propofol since hearing of the narcotic after Jackson's death. Experts say propofol abuse is growing because unlike many prescription pain medications, propofol is not a federally controlled substance. And with more medical professionals now using the drug, it's creating pressure to change its status to controlled substance.

    Until stricter controls are placed on propofol, teens looking for a new high will continue to have easy access to the drug. Surveying over 30 high schools in 18 states, eighty percent of teens were aware of the drug, while twelve percent had experienced propofol personally or been at a party where it was present. While marjiuana and tobacco usage amongst teens has remained steady over the last 7 years, new drugs like propofol are being adopted at an alarming rate.

    The appeal to teenagers is easy to pinpoint. "It's like three drugs rolled into one," says Dr. Paul Wischmeyer of the University of Colorado Denver. "It's like marijuana, Valium and the club drug Ketomine. It creates a unique high like no other drug." Combined with easy access through multiple medical channels, parents and experts fear the likelyhood of abuse is far too high.

    Even more concerning is the combination of propofol with traditional narcotis. Teens are combining the sedative with common street drugs with unknown medical results. Combined with marjiuana, the trip is referred to as "Moonsitting" and with methamphetamine is known as "Moonrunning."

    Long term abuse of the drug has reported resulting in addiction and depression. Indications that your teen could be abusing the drug are uncommon lethargy, increase in sleep patterns, common refference to "Moonwalking" with friends, and trouble concentrating.

    "All the swingin' hip cats at the jazz club are doing it," she went on to add.

    don't you have to inject it?

    If that's the case I doubt that many kids are lining up to "shoot the moon"

    Wow, three of the most boring buzzes wrapped into one. That is groovy.

    I worry for our children, because if they're catching blasts like this, they're clearly doing it wrong.

    then you are doing it wrong.

    its great for focus, its great for finding amusement in things you may not necessarily find amusing.

    sex is fantastic on it.

    but to each their own, i hate K, and Valium, so i am with you there.

    but weed is NOTHING like them.

    guys lets not lose focus. Kids are maybe doing stupid things and we need to warn everyone. Only by creating mass hysteria can we properly inform and prevent kids from doing stupid things. I'm trying to get on Oprah. Let's keep the hype alive.

    I doubt that's it. I just really dislike it. Maybe you're doing sobriety wrong.
