A new kind of methamphetamine that has a strawberry flavor and bright pink coloring was seized for the first time in Carson City, Nevada during a search of an apartment on January 27, 2007. Flavored methamphetamine is the newest metamorphosis of the dangerous street drug. It appears that the flavor and color were added to the meth during the cooking process, instead of afterward, which would mean the drug does not have any less potency than its common counterpart. The colored and flavored methamphetamine, known as “Strawberry Quick” in the Sacramento, California area and now in Carson City, is popular among new users who snort it because the flavoring can cut down on the taste. Teenagers who have been taught meth is bad may see this flavored version as less harmful. “Strawberry Quick” is designed for the younger crowd. If dealers can get younger people using it, they can get long-time buyers.

    This “story” has been debunked repeatedly. The posted story is specifically referenced on Snopes. COLORED meth has been found but not flavored. While it is great that this site posts information that should be available publicly it would also be good if there was effort to verify the claims of law enforcement before publishing.

    We do not necessarily endorse any of the information published on this site. Information has more purposes than to simply inform.

    as a ex meth head, i believe this is the worst drug ever manufactured and to make it strawberry flavor i can see the addiction rate going way up on the teenage crowd. I think who every come up with this, in the end should be prosecurted for attempted murder and even murder is someone dies off this dangerous drug. It is a demon most ppl have to fight the rest of their life to reform and unless they die fiist.

    This is a hoax. Also, not sure where y’all got that pdf, but I’m pretty sure it’s fake as well. Not sure how kosher it is to post a falsified “government” document, and claim it’s real.

    So if strawberry flavored meth is for targeting kids- then what are the flavored vodkas made for?

    If you got addicted to meth- addiction is probably a symptom for a deeper problem you have. Alll it takes is a little self restraint to keep from becoming a tweakfeind.
