In the world of rappers (and Justin Biebers) the drug "sizzurp" is a favorite. Especially for people like Soulja Boy. (That's his pic above).
It's a mixture of cough syrup and codeine and it's being pulled from the market!
Why are they taking their product off the shelves??
A rep for the company that makes it, Actavis, said:
"Given [recent media attention], Actavis has made the bold and unprecedented decision to cease all production and sales of its Promethazine Codeine product. This attention has glamorized the unlawful and dangerous use of the product, which is contrary to its approved indication."
Wow! We understand where they're coming from, but on the flip-side they're stopping production of a product that helps people, sick people who need it, because a bunch of fools abused it too much.
Apparently a pint bottle of the stuff was going for $800, but now things are gonna get crazy. A prominent rapper allegedly offered his deal up to $100,000 to score as much as he can.
That's nuts! How about just enjoying something other than chugging dangerous medicine. Gross.
