A new drug called ‘Flakka’ which can be purchased for as little as $5 is driving addicts in Florida insane. It’s a synthetic crystal which is imported from China and a single dose is incredibly potent. Flakka gives the user a huge rush and causes some pretty crazy hallucinations. It can be smoked, injected, swallowed and snorted. The effects are likened to a combination of cocaine, PCP, LSD and methamphetamine. Last year a woman was taken to hospital when she shredded her tongue after compulsively licking the floor of a night club. 60 people have died as a result of this drug since the epidemic began 14 months ago.
