WILDWOOD, Mo. (KMOV) -- St. Louis County Police are looking into any possible violations of what is called the “Social Hosting Law” after a Chesterfield woman reported her daughter may have been slipped a drug at a New Year’s Eve party.
The woman reported that her 15-year-old daughter may have ingested what is called the “N-Bomb” drug at the party.
Parents are now investigating to see if the “Social Hosting Law” would apply in this case. Promoted by the Rockwood Drug-Free Coalitions, the ordinance makes parents responsible for underage drinking and illegal drug use even if they are not home at the time of the violations.
On its website the coalition’s says parents should be responsible when parties are thrown involving underage drinking and illegal drug use.
“Passage of ordinances by each municipality in our Rockwood community that hold adults accountable, legally and fiscally, for hosting parties where underage drinking occurs, helps ensure consistent enforcement and prosecution of both the adults and the minors in possession,” the statement read. “Until there is a change in parental attitude and behavior, underage drinking in homes will continue to be an issue.”
Earlier this week, St. Louis-area police warned residents about “N-Bomb,” which is an emerging synthetic drug aimed to replicate the effects of LSD.
Authorities said the drug, also known as “Legal Acid” or “25I,” is very potent and has killed users in several states, including California, Louisiana, Minnesota, North Dakota and Virginia. So far, only Virginia and Louisiana have banned the substance.
The drug is a liquid most commonly soaked into blotter paper, which then gets put on users’ tongues.
According to police, the drug is a derivative of mescaline, but is much more potent and deadly than similar predecessors.
“This is a very dangerous drug, and it’s important that we get this information out to the public,” said St. Louis County Police Chief Tim Fitch.
Police said the nickname “N-Bomb” comes from it’s chemical name, 2C-I-NBOMe or 25INBOMe.
