12-year-old Rushed to Hospital; Took Ecstasy

Would a 40 year old woman give a 12 year old girl Ecstasy in order to build a market for her drug dealing business? Apparently so, according to the Cornish Guardian:
Children in Torpoint are being supplied with Class A drugs, a police investigation has revealed.
Earlier this month a 12-year-old girl was rushed to hospital after taking ecstasy in the town, prompting police to arrest a teenager and a woman in her 40s on suspicion of drug dealing.
The girl was taken ill on parkland at The Lawns on August 5 and was transferred by ambulance to Derriford Hospital where she received treatment and was later released.
Police have now appealed to children to tell their parents – who should then report it to the police – if they are approached by anyone offering them pills or other substances.
Officers say children can sometimes be offered drugs at no cost with the intention of getting them hooked. …
Local residents have been stunned someone so young could have taken the drug.
Helen Dunn, 40, saw the girl being helped into the ambulance.
She said: “I’m really shocked she’s only 12, she looked a lot older than that. I saw the police and ambulance arrive and I saw two boys supporting a girl, walking her towards the ambulance, She couldn’t stand on her own.”
Lucky the girl got to the hospital right away. This goes right along with the story below. Parents need to get a clue.
