Davis police: Teens abusing popular cold medication to hallucinate


Davis police sent an alert Tuesday afternoon warning parents that teenagers were abusing a popular cold remedy that didn't require a prescription to buy. Several Davis middle school students were already contacted after using the drug.

One student required medical attention, according to police.

Police said that teens call the drug combination, which involves over-the-counter medication Coricidin HBP Cough & Cold, "Triple C."

"Triple C" contains dextromethorphan (DXM) that, when taken in large doses, produces hallucinations and a sense of dissociation similar to those experienced with PCP or ketamine, according to police.

"They take pills by the handful, sometimes three to six, sometimes more," Davis Police School Resource Officer Keirith Briesenick said. "It's like being drunk; it's a dissociate hallucinogenic state where they kind of stop feeling."

Davis Beer Week is not canceled


Davis Beer Week was canceled Monday afternoon, but by Monday evening it was back on schedule.

Henry de Vere White, owner of de Vere's Irish Pub and founder of Davis Beer Fest said initially he decided to cancel the event until he and other vendors had the appropriate clarification of the Alcohol Beverage Control rules.

"It's definitely not about ABC not wanting these events. That's not it at all," de Vere White said. "I want to have a good relationship with them, and I do have a good relationship with them. I just could not do it with the same level of involvement with the way the current laws are understood."

So, organizers updated the event's Facebook and website to say the event would be canceled.
