Purple drank, also called purple drank and many other names, is an illegal drug drink, made from mixing prescription cough syrups with various hard candies and cough drops. The mixture originated in Houston, Texas, and popular amongst the urban or those who live in the south. It was popularized when hip hop artists started using it in their songs and became quite popular.
This particular drug was used by many people who were addicted to lean, cocaine or methamphetamines. Most were arrested for DUI, marijuana, or any other narcotic charges. It was popular because most of its users were overweight, which made them look slim and sexy, hence the name purple drank. Since most teenagers and children are fond of playing video games and watching adult films, it gave the kids a chance to escape reality and enjoy themselves.
The drug was very cheap to buy and easily accessible. Many people who did not have jobs or were undependable could get involved in buying the drug. This trend increased during the late 80’s. Many teenagers and children were found to be abusers of the drug and many were arrested and put in prison.
Because of all the negative press that this particular illegal drug got, it lost a lot of its popularity. Many companies saw the effects of it on society and decided not to make it available to customers anymore. It was widely thought that it would soon die out because there would be no more kids or teenagers that wanted to consume it. But instead, it became more popular because the stigma has been slowly lifting off it. Many people who had been diagnosed with drug addiction or other ailments are now leading happy, productive lives. There are many parents who are proud to know that their child is leading a drug-free life and that they do not need to resort to drugs.
There has been some recent development with this drug, as it has been discovered that it can help in weight loss. This means that many people who were abusing it are now trying to lose weight so that they will become fit and healthy. It is also legal now and many people try it out to see how it will work for them.
In the past, it was known to only use substances like Lean, methamphetamine, PCP and others. Even though the drug was legal and safe to use, many were still hooked on it. When the world found out about the purple drank, they realized that it could help them in many ways including weight loss. It has taken many years to finally put an end to this drug which caused a lot of problems to many people.
