The Victor Orlando Woolson Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit corporation created to raise awareness of the dangers of synthetic drugs/bath salts, to advocate for stronger legislation against synthetics for the health and safety of young people, and to assist individuals and/or organizations in advocating for or providing services to the mentally ill, homeless and/or low income youth in Oswego County.
Victor Orlando Woolson died, at the young age of 19, on August 9, 2012, from using synthetic marijuana. He purchased them legally right off of the shelf of a store AFTER bans were in place by the Health Department, the Federal Government and the State of New York. He just couldn’t understand the concept that if it was sold in a store, that it could be more harmful than street drugs. Young people simply do not understand or comprehend how dangerous this world can be.
Victor graduated Mexico High School with an Advanced Regents Diploma. He had 4 years in the Marine Core Jr. R.O.T.C. and was contemplating a career in law enforcement. He was enrolled in his second year of College at Cayuga Community College in Fulton, NY, and he had a part-time job.
Victor was your average happy-go-lucky teenager who had many friends. He was not only a great friend, but he was also a youngest child, a baby brother, a cousin, a nephew, an uncle and a grandson. His life ended too quickly and now we are here to help keep synthetics from ending more precious lives.
Victor’s initials are V.O.W. We VOW to help in this war against synthetics. Synthetics are a “Major Crisis” as the DEA Agent in a Press Conference (June 2013) announced. Parents, relatives and friends need to be aware of the dangers of these poisons. PLEASE educate yourself and pass on the information to others!
Each package of synthetic drugs are different; trying them just once is like playing Russian-Roulette with your life. Synthetic marijuana is poison sprayed on leaves – highly toxic!!!
