    Jamie – Thanks for the plug! I appreciate your kind words. Your site and podcasts are very informative & entertaining, and keep me pondering as to how I can incorporate them here.
    I listened to this podcast and Theresa’s (?) info about Tracleer & nitro. I’m actually unable to find any info on adverse interactions. It makes sense that it could happen, and I’m sure it’s a problem, but I would like to see any real data so that I can include it in my training. Thanks again & keep up the great work.

    Hey Jamie,

    I just wanted to respond to the question left by someone last week regarding the “pixie stix’ drug he heard of. There is a form of meth that is being mixed with sugary stuff like pixie sticks that is being called “strawberry quick”, “pop tarts,” or “pop rocks.” I have several friends in the midwest and southwest who have seen it on the streets. As far as I know, it hasn’t crossed the Mississippi yet.

    Here’s the link a firefighter/medic friend of mine sent to a message board I’m on. It may indeed be a media blitz, but better to be safe than sorry.

    Feel better!
