Wocha Peeps !

I recall seeing a while ago one of those police progs where a bloke was hyped with so much drugs that even when shot he continued to become a thorough nuisance !!

What is that drug and how does it make a shot person continue to be active and be rather nasty ? (pending head wounds I assume !!)

methamphedimenes, crystal meth, crank, meth etc.. they even call it speed these days as it is so prevelent. We knew speed as a family of drugs.

 mixture of antihistimines and a some other nasty chemicals.. which when mixed produce a horrid smell very toxic biproducts or waste.

I don know exactly how it works, but it seems that it makes your body produce its adrenilan in high amounts.... rages an insue,
It must be adrenaline.....in loads.. I am not sure..
I do know its nasty stuff!!! My siblings have all been highly addicted to it over the years..... and still are except one sister... wo has managed to get awa from it...its horrible stuff ages a person way beyound their time....just awful!!!!

Phencylidine also known as "angel dust"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phencyclidine_(PCP)
causes a loss of sensitivity to pain, a reduction of higher brain function and sometimes halucinations.
That combination is enough to stop people noticing that they have been shot.

PCP is definitely one that does that also... but I think it is less known for its violence is it not? My brother took the PCP and has never been the same... he and  my cousin and a friend.. The friend got the worst of it my brother is way out there and has never touched it again but you might say he will forever be touched by its effect his mind is mush and he will never recover his mental faculties again and last time I saw him was in a care providers and on meds for the rest of his life.. they moved and left us no forwarding address so I haven't seen him for many years now!

All drugs are dangerous. It's a queastion of whether you think the benfits outweigh the problems.
Alcohol is a dangerous drug, but that doesn't stop me drinking it.
However you need a very odd outlook to think that PCP is worth the risk.
