Green Liquid Recreational Drug Just Arrived in Town

Antifreeze. Ethylene glycol

A drug for ‘recreation’

Has just arrived in town

A liquid, green, let’s party on

Join in let’s drink it down

Eight hours went by, then suddenly

He started feeling ill

They rushed him to emergency

Now fighting for his life….

The green liquid was antifreeze, ethylene glycol. It affects the central nervous system and can cause permanent damage to the kidneys and in some cases can be fatal. No symptoms appear until renal and neurological injury develops. Hence the 8 hr delay.
