¡Attention to all parents!

Watch out if your teens are drinking ‘Sizzurp’ or ‘The Purple Drink’.

This drink, a mixture of jolly ranchers, soda and prescription cough syrup that gives the consumer an instant high

“It’s quite addictive… It can lead to seizures and essentially lead you to stop breathing.” said Dr. Robert Glatter in an interview by The Today Show. “The sweetness of the soda and candy combined with the drug itself makes people want to have this all day long. … They just don’t know how much they’ve had throughout the day and by then, it’s almost too late.”

The drink has been linked to the death of rapper Pimp C and Dj Screw, and the hospitalization of Lil Wayne, who once praised the drug.
