'Lil Wayne recently informed me of something that I feel like I should have been kept in the loop on: Purple Drank.
"Purple drank is a slang term for a recreational drug made with prescription-strength cough syrup, containing codeine and promethazine, mixed with ingredients such as Sprite soft drink and pieces of Jolly Rancher candy.
When taken in large quantities, this drug can lead to sedation and altered levels of consciousness."
This description alone scares the shit out of me while still tempting my (thankfully now small) rebellious side of me.
Don't worry, I'm not going straight to CVS buy myself a bottle of cough syrup. But I just would like if someone, preferably more hip than me, would let me know when a new phenomenon hits the streets, ya know? If you are that hip someone, please let me know.
The Califorina Cosmo is definitely not my version of the Purple Drank. It's just purple.
