Flakka The real name of flakka is, alpha-Pyrrolidinopentiophenone

Around 2010 Flakka entered the US, Flakka originated in China but soon after it was discovered, people in the US found out about it and they wanted it. Florida is the main place where Flakka is prominent and the majority of police reports have come from.

Flakka is not a naturally grown drug in fact there's really nothing natural about it. All Flakka is, is bath salts on a higher level, they come in a plastic bag filled with awful smelling pinkish or white crystals.
Flakka comes in a white/pinkish crystal form very similar to bath salts. It can be eaten, snorted, injected or vaporized with an e-cig.
When flakka is vaped it instantly enters the blood stream and an overdose can happen a lot faster that usual. Like other drugs flakka can cause a condition called "excited delirium" that involves hyper-stimulation, paranoia, and hallucinations that can lead to violent actions and self harm.
Just like most drugs when using Flakka a flood of dopamine rushes into the brain. This causes many short term effects like: euphoric sensations (intense feeling of happiness and excitement), rapid heart rate, increase in blood pressure, and aggressive behavior. There aren't any real long term effects as of now but death is the one you can consider long term.
Flakka influences peoples behavior by creating feelings of euphoria, enhancing someones alertness and wakefulness, and increased movement. Excessive use has been linked to feelings of extreme anxiety, paranoia, and hallucinations.
Peoples relationships can also be influenced because of drugs, people who are married to drug abusers are unhappy and the more the drug abuser uses the drug there is emotional distance between the partners that is hard to over come. The abuser starts to lose relationships with friends, relatives, co workers, and even their children.
