Sherm Stick - Wait, what?

I didn't know what Sherm Stick meant. I'm not keen on terms for drugs or whatever. But I was watching COPS tonight, and they referred to some guy having used a Sherm Stick.

Looking it up, it's a blunt dipped in PCP. I had no clue people. Cut me some slack. lol (I've never done any drug, so I'm really blind to terms or slang for things.) blunt stoned

I thought of Prince, of course, because of the "Letitgo" remixes with the name Sherm Stick in them.

Eh....ya live and learn, huh?

That was a great COPS episode. My brother and I laughed all night long. The cop that busted dude kept saying "He has Sherm! He was smoking Sherm Stick!" He must have said it 50 times in a 5 minute segment. Too Funny!

I had no idea either, I thought it was a guy's name lol Learn something new every day. I love the instrumental version of the Sherm Stick remix.
Making love and music are the only things worth fighting for.

Wasn't it some kind of anagram? Switch some letters and it said someone had to call him or something. I remember reading that theory in Uptown I think. I think it was for an ex-employee of PP.

And oh, yeah, those remixes are excellent. Rarely mentioned, rarely discussed. Were they ever available on cd?

Yes, on a CD-single. But I don't really like them. Probably because I'm not a particularly big fan of the original version, either. biggrin

And I always kinda thought Sherm Stick was a polite way of saying Sperm Stick. Oh, well... smile

Actually ernest that is a popular misconception. It may be that some people have adopted the term "Sherm Stick" for a blunt dipped in PCP, but those people are using the term incorrectly because that's not what it actually means.

A Sherm Stick is actually a cigarette dipped in formaldehyde (embalming fluid) and it became popular in LA in the early 90's.

It's quite disgusting and morbid, but a lot of morgues/medical centres began to discover that the body parts they were storing began to rot. They discovered that this was due to people breaking in, stealing the embalming fluid and replacing it with water.

LMAO I watched that episode too. And I couldn't help but wonder why all the folks in P&R think that all white cops are racist. The cop that was helping that poor dude seemed nice enough to me.

formaldehyde (embalming fluid) is one of the ingredients in PCP.

Yes, I knew that. But there's a very different high from PCP as opposed to straight formaldehyde. That doesn't make it the same thing, if that's what you're implying.

There's formaldehyde in cigarette smoke too.

Rapper Big Lurch stabbed his girlfriend to death, ripped open her chest and ate part of her lung whilst high on PCP. It's fucked up.

I remember hearing about that. One of my little brother's friends from when he was in school was on the news one night because he stabbed his infant niece while she was playing in a bouncer seat. He said that he thought she was a demon. He had made a habit of smoking wet and was just released from a mental institution weeks earlier. sad
