Drug Warning

The notice above, originally posted on the door of a medical clinic in Jacksonville, Illinois in 2012, is still circulating via Facebook and other social media despite being labeled a hoax by law enforcement officials and the company whose letterhead it was written on.

"To anyone who's seen a photo of a sign in one of our Memorial Physician Services' clinics circulating on Facebook about 'strawberry quick' drugs being given to children," Memorial Health System said in a public statement issued Dec. 14, 2012, "the message on the sign is an Internet hoax and is not true. We are sorry for the inconvenience."

Rumors of drug dealers targeting children with candy-flavored crystal meth have been making the rounds since 2007.
