A high-flying accountant died after allegedly taking legal high GBL at a wake for a friend – who is thought to have been killed by the same lethal party drug.
The former Streetly College student was described by her heartbroken parents Dave and Tracie, who live in Queslett, as a ‘golden girl who would help anybody’.
‘She was really bright, in fact school was too easy for her,’ said Mr Nock, 69.
‘She was like an agony aunt and was so kind that she would get into trouble with debt collectors because she would lend her friends money.’
I guess ‘really bright’ doesn’t equal ‘sensible’..?
And yes, there will now be calls to make this drug illegal (from the anti-drug brigade) and to make all other drugs legal (from the pro-drug brigade), both considered by their respective proposers and enthiusiasts as a ‘solution’ to deaths like these.
But until we can find a way to stop human beings wanting to get high and taking stupid risks to do so, both are doomed to failure.
