Youths now drink urine to feel high – NDLEA

 

It will interest you to know that after some abused drugs have been banned in Nigeria, the youths turn to be taking urine in other to feel high.

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has revealed a new drug Nigerian youths take to feel intoxicated.

Shehu Dankolo, Head of Drug Reduction of the NDLEA in Adamawa State revealed that some Nigerian youths now take processed urine to feel “high” as the ban on some abused drugs have made them relatively expensive.

 

 

“THERE ARE CERTAIN CONTROLLED DRUGS, PARTICULARLY CODEINE COUGH SYRUP. YOU KNOW, FEDERAL GOVERNMENT CLAMPED SERIOUSLY ON THEM. SOME OF THE COMPANIES CLOSED DOWN. SO, THE COUGH SYRUP THAT WAS INITIALLY N250 PER BOTTLE, BUT IT IS NOW SOLD FOR ABOUT N4,000. THE SAME THING WITH TRAMADOL WHICH WAS N50 BUT IS NOW ABOUT N500.

“BECAUSE THESE ABUSED BUT BANNED DRUGS ARE SO SCARCE AND COSTLY OR ENTIRELY OUT OF REACH, PEOPLE IMPROVISE OTHER THINGS. I WON’T INCLUDE SO MUCH DETAIL SO THAT PEOPLE DON’T READ THIS AND BEGIN TO EXPERIMENT.

“THERE IS A WAY THEY PROCESS URINE. THEY TAKE IT AND BECOME INTOXICATED. THERE IS A WAY THEY PUT MAGGI IN SOME ENERGY DRINKS AND IT GIVES THEM INTOXICATION. THERE IS A CERTAIN SWEET THEY PUT IN HALF BOTTLE OF WATER WHICH THEY COVER UP AND LEAVE FOR SOME DAYS. THEY FORM SUCH OTHER THINGS. THERE ARE WHAT WE CALL NEW PSYCHOACTIVE SUBSTANCES. THAT IS WHY DRUG ABUSE IS DIFFICULT TO TACKLE” HE TOLD DAILY POST.
