A recent article (“How to say no to drugs,” Sept. 24) focuses on the proliferation of the possession of hard drugs such as ecstasy, heroin and LSD by students in Glendale, and primarily in La Crescenta. It draws attention to the lack of fear students feel when being confronted with such dangerous substances. In September, a Rosemont Middle School student was arrested for the ownership of ecstasy, and a Crescenta Valley High School student was caught with two tablets of LSD. Such fearlessness toward experiencing hazardous drugs has never before been apparent in any other generation.

Judy Seckler DOWNTOWN -- TV messages bombard the public -- If you don't feel well, there's a chemical to make you feel better. Children 18 and younger conditioned by this information turn to drugs to stop emotional pain, said Glendale Police spokesman Sgt. Rick Young. The police find that in the homes of student drug users, alcohol, smoking and drugs are being used for relaxation by the parents, Young said. When parents and kids don't discuss their problems with each other, children tend to numb themselves with drugs.

As a parent, I can't help but be horrified every time I read the newspaper and find out that the latest fashion in our schools is a drug named Ecstasy. This drug is as dangerous as heroin or LSD and our youngsters are the dealers and consumers of it. Depression, memory loss and permanent brain damage are some of the results of taking this drug. Schools should help parents to educate kids about drugs, with a more aggressive approach. Our kids spend about seven hours a day, five days a week, learning grammar, science, history, and math, for more than 10 years before college.

Police discovered a potentially-explosive lab used to extract hash oil on Saturday inside the garage of a north Glendale home. Detectives seized roughly 40 pounds of marijuana, approximately 181 cans of butane, three large tubes used for extraction and about 2 ounces of “butane honey oil” inside Andrew Hedenberg's detached garage in the 800 block of North Glendale Avenue, police said. “The potential for explosion is huge,” Glendale Police Sgt. Toby Darby said. “These things are blowing up all over the place.” Detectives discovered the lab after police said he reported that his girlfriend allegedly assaulted him. Hedenberg, 22, of Glendale was taken into custody on suspicion of manufacturing the “butane honey oil” - a highly-potent marijuana extract - as well as selling other potent drugs, including hallucinogenic mushrooms, LSD and methamphetamine, Darby said.

NORTH GLENDALE — At a packed public meeting Tuesday night inside Verdugo Hills Hospital, certified addiction specialist Cary Quashen played several phone messages left by family members and friends of people who died from using drugs and alcohol. “I am so sick of burying these kids,” he said. In a foothill region beset with what officials say is a growing drug-abuse problem among teens, the forum focused on why and how young people slide into substance abuse.

Laguna Beach was the LSD capital of the world starting in mid-1960s and was still home to droppers, dopers and dealers until 1981, according to an unpublished book, "The Jesus Dealers," written by Ted Taylor in collaboration with former Police Chief Neal Purcell. In its heyday, the Brotherhood of Eternal Love, founded by Timothy Francis Leary, was allegedly selling dope in Laguna at health food stores, juice bars, psychedelic shops, record stores, surf shops and even a used car lot. Woodland Drive was considered their base, known to local law enforcement as "Dodge City."

CRESCENTA VALLEY— About 16% of Crescenta Valley High School students have enrolled in a voluntary drug testing program, which could expand into other Glendale Unified School District campuses, officials said. The program was announced in December as part of a communitywide push to keep drugs out of the La Crescenta school, and to facilitate conversations between families and their children. Of the 2,946 notices sent out, 1,444 were returned. Of those, 473 students chose to sign up for the testing program.

LA CRESCENTA ? Narcotic experts in law enforcement and medical fields group Salvia divinorum, an herb that causes a hallucinogenic ?high? when smoked, with LSD and other noted narcotics, but it?s widely available for over-the-counter purchase. Increasingly popular among teenagers, the substance reportedly sends users into a five- to 20-minute hallucinogenic state, in which the user loses control and self-awareness, Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said. Scarier to some law enforcement and medical officials is that anyone, regardless of age, can stroll into a smoke shop or surf online stores to purchase the herb.
