Meth + Pop Rocks = Strawberry Quik (Drug Branding Or Dealing To Kids?)

Drug dealers are now dressing up their meth by mixing it with fruity drink powders and marketing it as 'Strawberry Quik'. Whether this is merely an effort to 'brand' their 'quality' product OR an effort to make meth more attractive to kids, is what's being called in to question.

Last year on Trend Hunter, we noted examples of drug dealers using marketing to establish brand loyalty and X-Box 360 Branded Ecstacy.

Drug dealers are not the most virtuous individuals on the planet and their latest efforts to make their wares more attractive has raised a few eyebrows.
