A while ago I saw videos of the infamous drug called FLAKKA (the zombie drug) on YOUTUBE. I was shocked at the extent of the hallucinations caused by this horrific drug. And I thought to myself why anyone would want to put themselves through it.
It causes severe hallucinations that makes the victim act completely crazy. There is not a better way to describe it. I don’t know how many of us has seen Zombie Apocalypse. If you look at the movie and how these people act you would say they were Zombies, trying to destroy humanity.
Then the question arises, is that not the purpose of this drug? To wreak havoc in our homes and destroy families? I cannot think how cruel someone must be to invent such a thing, it can only be a psychopath. What is going on in that person’s mind? According to all the research I have done, it is cheap, available everywhere and has now spread to South Africa. It even comes disguised as candy.
If the effects of this drug causes insanity and these severe hallucinations, what will it do to your body? These are the short-term side effects:
- Euphoric sensations.
- Rapid heart rate and palpitations.
- Increase in blood pressure.
- Aggressive behavior
Long-term effects are not completely know as yet. Flakka only hit the streets in Florida in 2015 so is still fairly new and research are still being conducted as to how harmful it is. It is believed so far that it causes kidney and renal failure.
Seeing all the destruction this has caused, as an aunt of many it makes me concerned, very concerned. I think about drug control, Police and Governments has endless campaigns fighting against drugs. Still, it has been an endless fight. I do not want one of my nieces or nephews to fall victim to this terrible evil. So how do we protect our kids against it?
