If you are here in South Florida all anyone is talking about is the new street drug that is sweeping the streets of South Florida called Falkka. Flakka’s technical name is- Alpha Pyrrolidinopentiophene (A-PVP). It’s similar to “bath salts,” another dangerous drug that’s grabbed headlines in recent years. It’s off-white, coarse crystals sell for as little as $5 a hit.
Flakka has been reported to be the cause or a significant contributory cause of death in suicides and polydrug overdoses. It can cause a condition called "excited delirium" that involves hyperstimulation, paranoia, and hallucinations. The drug has also been linked to at least one death where it was combined with pentedrone and caused heart failure.
