The National Council on Drug Abuse NCDA is investigating reports of a product being sold to children that is allegedly causing them to experience abnormal symptoms.

This, following reports that the product was being sold to children.

NCDA Substance Abuse Officer for St. Ann, Nordia Henry, said the council was made aware of the item yesterday, after images were brought to its attention.

She said an investigation is underway and the agency is trying to get a sample of the product to undertake tests.

Meanwhile, Education and Youth Minister Fayval Williams today shared an image of the product which appears to be coloured liquid in a spray bottle.

The bottle is labelled ‘spray alien’ acido, with the phrase ‘sugar syrup’ written in Spanish.

In posts on Instagram and X (formerly Twitter), Mrs. Williams said she was sharing the information out of an abundance of caution.

She said the picture was brought to her attention by a concerned Jamaican, who said the product is a sweet that is sprayed into the mouth.
