It'* not a drug. per se, but due to it being abused, it'* a non issue now....
Not to freak anyone out, but about a month ago a guy dropped dead in our fitness center- right on the treadmill. They did a blood sample or whatever right there on the spot somehow and found that he had large amounts of ephedra.
Our manager tried to do CPR but he was a gonner. He wasn't even a resident- he was in town visiting some friends at the community and just decided he would go for a workout after taking a couple pills that day.
Craziness. Ephedra may work- but I think it'* too risky. You never know how your body is going to react to it when it is under stress.
*insert humble opinion due to dead guy here*
And gangs? Don't get me started. It'* all about love. Fill a child'* love tank and be sure you are available to them- give them encouragement and build their self esteem. That'* half the battle. The other battle is the greed for fast money. if you teach a child integrity and to be proud in their accomplishments, they won't turn to gangs... WHERE'* MY PODIUM, I'M PREACHIN' UP IN HERE...
