On Friday 18th of January 2019, a 15-year-old girl from the Italian city of Campobasso collapsed under aggressive convulsions after smoking what appears to be marijuana offered by one of her older male friends. She was taken to the “Cardarelli” hospital in a semi-conscious state and is under stable condition. More interesting is the fact that the results for traditional drugs came negative, meaning that the girl might have assumed designer drugs which are notoriously more chemically unstable.
Her older male friend who offered the unidentified narcotics is under police inquiry. The police searched his backpack at school as well as his house and found a number of fake €20 banknotes at his residence. Furthermore, preliminary investigations indicate that the deep web drug order was placed by the boy with money from several other individuals for a single order of between €300 and €500.

A day after the incident, the Mobile Squad policemen, the Provincial Health Office, and the Traffic Police were involved in an education and information class on the risks related to the consumption of drugs at the Comprehensive Institute “D’Ovidio” of Campobasso, where they held a meeting with about 50 high-school students, during which the students showed, once again, considerable interest on the subject, formulating questions to the police officers and expressing curiosity and perplexity on the topic.
The suspect is accused of violation of art. 455 of the Italian criminal code which regards spending and introducing counterfeit money into the State’s financial circulation. The penal code requires incarceration from 3 to 12 years and fines from €516 to €3.098. Adjacently, he’s investigated for drug trafficking. However, he’ll be judged as a minor and will most likely receive a suspended sentence, rehabilitation coercion, and fines.
