WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Law enforcement is warning of another synthetic drug on the streets of Wilmington. The New Hanover County Sheriff's Office and the Wilmington Police Department joint Downtown Task Force encountered Pump-It this weekend.

Investigators want parents to know if you hear your kids talking about Pump-It, be concerned. While it's marketed as an "enhanced plant vitamin" and not for human use, many are abusing it to get high.

The Downtown Task Force found two people injecting the substance this weekend. Because it is not illegal, officers did not arrest anyone.

Pump-It is the latest substance law enforcement is dealing with following K-2 and bath salts as a synthetic drug.

idiots u all

I guess this is the section where we put our worthless opinions on how we think other people should live their life huh. Ok I think people should do what they want as long as it doesn't physically hurt others. If you think otherwise then you are probably a stuck up person probably of white descent, I put probably.

humm

Maybe we should ask Mr. Grooms about this.He should be easy to locate.

People are amazing!

I believe some people that have addictive personalities would suck rotten frog snot if they thought it would get them high! Geeez, what's wrong with just enjoying life without always having to have some sort of chemical coursing through your brain?

Drugs

I was the Mother of 2 Wonderful Sons...Now my youngest Son is dead due to drugs. There are no good Illegal Drugs. DRUGS KILL)I buried my Son three months ago and it has been heart breaking. People please wake-up and think of your families and the pain they endure at the time of your death...and it will come using and abusing your bodies. Get high on life...It can be a Wonderful thing.You don't need things like this pump it to make you feel good. Be good to yourselfs and love your family for tomorrow may never come, especially if you're using any substance legal or not to get high! Think about it! Do you wish to Live to see another Day?

Illegal

2nd highest violent crime rate in the State and your NHC SD, COW PD and a special task force are all right on top of a legal activity... maybe I will join the force. I was going to try and get on with the GSA.
