Trip's Trinkets, located on the corner of Front Street and High Avenue in Coeburn, sells synthetic drugs (often labeled as incense,etc.). While these products are not currently illegal, they are being consumed by people to create a high similar to that attained from the use of cocaine, heroine, ecstasy, and marijuana. These substances are both dangerous and addictive. Many overdoses and some deaths have been attributed to these drugs. Trip's Trinkets generates an unusually high amount of traffic in and out of their store on a daily basis purchasing these products.

      Our entire country is being destroyed by drugs and I don't think any of this garbage should be legal. I've seen what drugs do to people's lives and would like to see that NONE of them were available to my family, friends and loved ones. Also, on these drugs there is no age limit.

      I have seen several of my friends commit suicide from this stuff. I have seen many of the families I go to church with hurt because their children and their children's class mates are experiencing many side effects from these drugs. They cause many mental and physical side effects. With adults it tares families apart, its addictive and causes them to wanna die and have suicidal thoughts. These drugs slow down your breathing and speed up your heart rate which causes less blood flow to your brain which cause a form of euphoria. They are super dangerous. I dont want to see any more adults or children effected by these . Bath salts or the other synthetic drugs. I pray that this bill passes so that the devil cant win anymore and take our children away. They have enough going on with them and enough to deal with without having the pressure of drugs. They have peer pressure and as you all were a kid before from elementary age to high school you would do anything to be popular or fit in. Please pass this bill so we can get these drugs off the street.
