    Has anyone heard about this drug manufactured in China? A few days ago I read they caught a naked man trying to have sex with a tree; he was high on flakka. A story about a naked woman running around and getting arrested as a result of that, she was high on flakka too. According to what I read this is one of the most cheap drugs out there, and according to the article I read this drug is even more addictive than heroine!!! Quite scary if you ask me.

    If you don't know what am talking about, then click here for more info on this terrible drug:

    I heard it's crazy in Florida because of this.

    The thing about this drug is that it not only gets you super high, it's cheaper than cocaine.
    And it's not exactly new either. a
    Alpha-Pyrrolidinopentiophenone is a cns stimulant that's been abused for a decade. Flakka is a modified and worse version of it.

    Yeah, I had read that in another site, I thought it was so scary. As far as I know they are bringing this one from China, as if consuming things from china wasn´t dangerous enough. I read they are related to bath salts? Gosh, the stuff some people expose themselves to. But again, it's an addiction and as a former addict I kinda understand it, I'd never do it tho, not at this stage of my life, but in the past? Maybe!

    I dont understand why, all of a sudden, there seems to be such horrible drugs popping up from every direction. When i was young we managed to have a good time without rotting our flesh away, running around naked and trying to have seriously messed up sex with plants, or smoking living insects. The same things i did as a teenager are still around. I'm obviously against teens doing drugs or drinking. But if they are going to do it why are they being so ridiculous and stupid about it?

    Lol, your comment comparing the past and no made me laugh, because it indeed sounds sp crazy when you compare things to now and then. It's so sad! By the way... I haven't heard about the smoking living insects one, but I bet it's gross as hell.

    And I agree, people nowdays are falling for the craziest drug addictions ever, I blame it on poor judgement, we are obviously suffering from a global lack of common sense. Or maybe we have been systematically dumbed down, and am not talking about addictions... I am also talking about safe sex, birth control, parenting, dating,etc. Let's say I have come across with some really ''interesting'' folks.

    I didn't know it was manufactured in China but gave for granted was a Floridian invent, since it was first used and abused in the state of Florida, having also a common startup with the bath salts, also used and abused in this same state.

    But regardless where the drug comes from, it's terrible what is happening to people using Flakka.

    oh, its REALLY nasty! They collect living bed bugs, put them in a pipe, and smoke them!! So when someone mentions getting high on bed bugs, it isn't just a clever name for a reasonable drug. They mean the actual bed bugs that, I THINK, lives off human skin and blood. That means anyone who has slept in the bed could be in any of those bed bugs.

    "Global lack of common sense". That is absolutely perfect! I have heard people refer to everyone as getting dumber, but i really like your wording. Its more fun, lol.

    I'm terrified for my children. Not just in the present tense, but for their entire lives.

    I’ve heard of licking toads and such, but this is a whole new level of baffling. I often think if people could channel these kinds of… uh, resourcefulness into other avenues, this world would be a much better place.

    Ok, I think I have now heard it all... this ought to be one of the grossest things ever. Do they actually get high on this? Ugh, this can't be good at all, not even one bit. The idea of smoking bugs that feed off human blood and dead skin cells sounds so gross, ugh! What is next? Smoking ticks??? GROSS! This got to be the cheapest drug ever and the grossest one too.

    I was thinking I was just exaggerating, until I found this:

    I don't blame you, I'd feel the same if I were a parent! We are living some really strange times now, so glad am not raising teens... yet.

    I had that same thought. The things people could come up with to smoke pot out of was insanely clever!

    I failed miserably. I'm really embarrassed that I missed some of the questions that I did. If I list various types of pronouns, I still don't have 9 rules for capital letter.

    Here's an article about the bed bugs. I guess they make you hallucinate.

    Reading some of the things being said about this is eye opening and pretty scary. It is not really big where I am from because I have only heard of it once or twice.

    Yeah, it is pretty frightening to hear. Hopefully the harmful effects on the body long term are not too severe. Let's hope that this doesn't become prevalent in the underground communities...

    God, even inject them? That ough to be the grossest thing ever! Specially if those ''kids'' are gathering bed bugs from different sources... I mean, I would think those who do this are surely exposed to a couple nasty diseases, like hep c virus. That thing can live for very long in dry blood, hence the folk who cleans crime scenes need to wear a lot protective gear. Ugh, I think I got a bit nauseous....

    Just like the krokodil, I would really like to know who originally came up with the idea. With things like this, thats always my first thought. Why would someone try it to begin with?

    Never heard of this type of drug before. It was made in China? That sounds a bit weird don't you think? I'll look more into this.
