I was prescribed that drank a little while ago. Enjoyable stuff. I got to admit, while I was on it, I was pretty gangsta.

Did you, in fact, grip 'n' sip?

You can't prescribe it. It's booze and OTC cough syrup. At least, it's OTC in Japan and they have rough drug laws. I imagine it's OTC stateside.

But you have to mix it up with booze or it's not the same. Also it's got like 1/4 chance of shutting down your respiratory system.

I woulda swore it had booze in. Appears I'm wrong.

Booze is only added if you're suicidal, or a really big fan of DJ Screw.

Hence why I thought it was the REAL DEAL. Drank is supposed to kill you.

If you just wanted to get high, just do poppers.

I'm not sure what's in the 'drank' but I did have some cough syrup prescribed to me a few years ago that kicked my ass. I passed out sitting up.
Yeah, lightweight.

Why not get a six pack of beer, bottle of Yukon Jack and a cheap frozen pizza for a real buzz?

My wife and a friend of ours made some big ole purple dranks a few years back when I had a bunch of codeine cough syrup that I was prescribed that was going to go bad.

We all ended up sleeping 13 hours, and I woke up with a booger the size of a quarter in my throat from not being able to cough from the cough suppressing effect.

Good times.

When you get a throat booger that size, don't waste. Get some Ritz crackers and share.

It is not OTC cough syrup, it is promethyzine-codine cough syrup.

When they put her in her cell, all night long they heard this scratching noise. They looked in the cell the next day, and all over the wall was the same word, scratched into the brick walls. It was "Murder," she wrote.

/sorry

No, pretty much anything with codeine is prescription only. I have a bottle of it left over from the last time I was really sick. As a cough syrup, it was worthless, so I had most of it left over.

I'm surprised at the Sprite/Jolly Ranchers ... I would've figured maybe Grape Soda or what's that Orange crap Juggalos drink mixed with Nerds or Pop Rocks.

/Doesn't really matter. Even thinking about these concoctions is making me have flashbacks to mixing Suicides when I started drinking. Best described as "Barf. Barf. Barf." and "Dear God, don't let her baby drink from that cup!!"
//Good times.

$600 a pint on the street? It seems that if you're going to buy multiple pharmacies to commit crimes, you'd get into some of the neater drugs they have.

OOoooooooooooh......and all this time I assumed people were talking about grape flavored drinks from the supermarket.

Vicodin (to which my mother is addicted), percocet, lith, the list goes on ad infinitum. There's lots of ways to get high in a pharmacy. Lots of them, like the vicodin, are dangerous as hell. I won't take anything that's a narcotic for a very good reason (see prior sentence). Hell, I brew beer and won't drink more than 1 or 2 in any given day. Purple drank sounds like a good way to kill brain cells in a hurry.

They managed to buy 97,000 units before the DEA caught on!? Wow that's some good policing there.

not only that but it only cost them $9.

so she could purchase more than 97,000 pints of promethazine for the wholesale price of about $9, the U.S. attorney's office said

Wrong, subby. It was bootleg "Matlock" VHS tapes, not DVDs.

No doubt. Seems like there are too many law enforcement employees in some agencies. Like they have nothing to do. Go eat some donuts, guys. You're on the best compensation and retirement plans in the country as it is.

Why can't people just smoke pot or drink beer like normal drug users?
