Questions Posted to "Ask a Dispatcher"
Q. I've been trying to do research on his new drug 25i. Can you tell me what it was originally made for? Does it have any actual medical benefit? Are people getting prescribed this and selling it? I'm a mother, very anti drug, and am finding little information on the web. If you have any answers they would be very much appreciated.
Dear Juneau Resident,
Law enforcement doesn't have much information either except what we can find on the internet and what we have learned from some calls. We don't believe there is any prescription use. It seems to be a drug that was cooked up in a lab for some reason then some people decided to make money by cooking it up, probably in a basement or outbuilding, and selling it for recreational purposes. The drug is entirely synthetic, a chemistry experiment really, that people are ingesting. We have sent the 25i we seized to the crime lab to see if that lab can tell us more.
