Purple Drank Purple Drank Purple drank consists of the following household items;
cough syrup
Sprite/Mountain Dew
Jolly Ranchers/ Life Savers Purple Drank The reason purple drank is so bad for you is because prescription cough medicine consists of codeine and promethazine. Purple Drank Purple drank is most popular at parties from the ages of teenagers to young adults. Purple Drank Some of the most famous rap artists have mentioned purple drank in their music more than once. Some of these people include; Purple Drank Lil' Wayne "I’m not a rookie, I’m a pro…methazine fiend."

“I’m used to promethazine, in two cups, I’m screwed up.”

" I’m like a turtle, when I sip the purple.” Purple Drank Niki Minaj “…and when I come, they better lean like promethazine.” Purple Drank Others, have died from a horrid overdose of the deadly concoction... Purple Drank DJ Screw Pimp C Both of these rappers died from overdose of the drug promethazine which is in prescription cough syrup. Purple Drank Unfortunately, many teenagers have role models who are singers like these. They are encouraged by these artists to do such bad things. An example of this happening recently is the song 'Me and My Drank' by Lil' Wayne. Bath Salts An example of a terrible thing happening from someone snorting bath salts is about a man, on May 28th in Miami, was accused of cannibalism. This man had been snorting bath salts to get a high related to cocaine high. But he was unaware of the side effects of bath salts. He was found completely nude. He was also eating a homeless mans face while the homeless man was alive. The police later decided that the drug abuser had punched the homeless man and started eating his face. The police shot the man multiple times before he finally died . The homeless man is recovering from this injury and will be fine, but will have scars on his face for the rest of his life. Bath Salts Are there any questions on bath salts? The suicide was the culmination of five days of strange behavior that began shortly after Sanders snorted a powdery substance he bought from a friend. Instead of the brief high he was seeking, he experienced days of insomnia, along with waves of terror and frightening delusions, including an incident where he “saw” 25 police cars outside his parents' kitchen window and then slit his own throat with a butcher knife. That incident landed Sanders in the hospital with stitches. For a few hours, the hallucinations subsided.
“I don't like the way this is making me feel," Sanders told his stepmother, Julie, as the two awaited his release from the hospital. "I promise I won't do anything again. I'm done.”
But the paranoia flared up with a vengeance that night, and back home, Dickie's father lay in bed with his son, arms wrapped around him, until he finally nodded off. It's unclear when Dickie woke up, made his way downstairs to his bedroom and found the rifle he had won in a shooting contest years before. No one heard the gunshot.
~pbs.org~ Purple Drank Two men wearing bandannas over their faces robbed a Buckhead CVS Pharmacy early Thursday morning. But the men ignored the cash register and instead took bottles of a codeine-like syrup used to make a drug popular in the hip hop community called Purple drank.
The incident happened about 3 a.m. inside the pharmacy at 1943 Peachtree Road near Piedmont Hospital, Atlanta Police said.
An employee told police one of the men had a gun and forced him at gunpoint to the pharmacy area in the rear of the store, police spokesman Mr. Curtis Davenport said.
Other employees and customers escaped as the suspect took the employee to the back, Mr. Davenport said.
The suspects took six to nine bottles of promethazine with codeine used to make Purple Drank. Purple drank is a slang term for a recreational drug popular in the hip hop community in the southern United States, originating in Houston, Texas.
The drug's main ingredient is prescription-strength cough syrup containing codeine and promethazine. Cough syrup is typically mixed with ingredients such as Sprite soft drink or Mountain Dew and pieces of Jolly Rancher candy. The purplish hue of purple drank comes from dyes in the cough syrup.
So far police have not caught the men who ran from the pharmacy in an unknown direction The previous story shows you how hard it can be to get away from drugs once addicted. These men were so hooked on cough syrup that they had to rob a CVS so they can maintain their needs. Drugs are very harmful and you should never get hooked on stuff you don't need in your body.
