Flakka is a hallucinogenic designer drug, synthesized primarily from the chemical alpha-PVP, the primary component found in bath salts. Like all hallucinogens, Flakka alters one’s perceptions of reality, time and sensory functions. Though moderately new on the drug market, Flakka already has a reputation for producing adverse effects during a high, in which abusers display severely psychotic and paranoid behavior. Visit the Flakka Page for more information.
