This is lean.

Commonly known by the moniker Purple drank & other sobriquet slang names- sizzurp/syrup/purple jelly.
Lean is basically a prescription strength cough syrup which contains Codeine & Promethazine typically mixed with soft drinks such as Mountain Dew to form a thick purple concoction.

It is super sweet as fuck if you ask me, but you have to use 25 times of the normal prescription to get high. Bruh!!! That’s a nosedive to death. I’ll tell you why..
The promethazine is quintessential because it is an antihistamine but Codeine!!! Codeine!!! Codeine is a fucking poison masquerading expediency to relieve pain and other pseudo functions like suppressing cough obfuscating its adverse effects….. Ironically it’s on the WHO Model List of Essential Medicines while Cannabis is still illegal. Lean is creeping into popular culture like a plague. Before that.

Codeine alongside other other psychoactive alkaloids is extracted from papaver somniferum the opium poppy

.. The root source of all opioids considered opiates – Morphine(& its derivative heroin), thebaine, codeine, papaverine & noscapine.

In the 19th Century, the progressive isolation of opium’s several active components opened the path to improved selectivity. Morphine had already been isolated in Germany by German Pharmacist Friedrich Serturner in 1804. Codeine was first isolated decades later in 1832.. Heroin was produced as a mistake by a German Chemist Felix Hoffman whose main objective was producing less potent & less addictive codeine by acetylating Morphine. Instead, the experiment produced an acetylated form of morphine one and a half to two times more potent than morphine itself. This experiment was done by the German Pharmaceutical Company Bayer. They named the drug Heroin. This is why I keep telling you that Germans who pulled the strings in the period 1890 & 1945 have a warm spot in hell.
From 1898 through to 1910, Heroin was marketed as a nonaddictive cough depressant. The key word is non-addictive.. Heroin non-addictive?? These scientist’s minds must have been affected by heroin firsthand. In treating cough.. They thought morphine is better replaced by codeine or by heroin. They soon scrapped heroin but codeine persisted being used in very common cough syrups. This brings me to my ettle.

Opiates like codeine are controlled substances; illegal to produce & poses without authorization.
Codeine’s presence in common cough syrups is accessorialy allowing proclivity for abuse of the syrups. I mean… A heroin addict may use the codeine based syrup to ward off the effects of a withdrawal. The promethazine used in conjunction with codeine to make the cough syrup makes the codeine even more dangerous. Promethazine is a sedative employed to keep people from drinking too much of the syrup. It is a depressant of the CNS and has anecdotally been noted to intensify the euphoric effects of codeine on the brain.

Scaremongering over cannabis is misplaced when the demons live among us. Alcohol causes over 3 million deaths a year, Marijuana 0. Look at humanity bruh.. Your favourite rappers are popularizing lean like some humanitarian aid movement,. Lean is basically an overdose on codeine.. ,that syrup/juice mixed with soda/ jolly ranchers is 25 times the normal prescription. Taking codeine in large quantities can cause one to stop breathing.

There is a lot of great stuff happening around A$ap Mob.. A$ap Rocky’s impeccable fashion, A$ap Ferg’s Mortal Kombat Couture/Chicken-Noodle-Souping/agile rhyme cadences & A$ap Nast’s croning of a Nineties era BadBoy demeanor. A$ap Yams

a founding member of this coup de grace died of an acute mixed drug intoxication- likely lean and alcohol on Jan 18 2015.
Flacko uses lean now and again.. He raps about it. If he died.. A high end rap hyped fashion castle A$ap Mob burning to the ground.
#LongLiveThePimp – Widely influential Pimp C died from Promethazine/codeine effects.. Dj Screw who popularized the codeine-based drink died from an overdose. Big Moe got cardiac arrest and died from the drug.

Your Rappers are hellbent towards dying young. On March 15 2013, Lil Wayne was hospitalized with seizures after a sizzurp binge.. Lil Wayne’s recent Mixtapes are just full of Autotune junk.. Blame it on sizzurp for messing up his voice.

Obsessive Suckers For The Lean Movement.
