Drugs Laced with Bug Spray Becoming New Dangerous Drug Trend
With all types of odd ways for an addict to chase a high, a new drug trend has emerged and this time, it’s as simple as bug spray. First Responders in Indianapolis noticed the trend gaining popularity as an alarming number of people experienced an overdose on drugs laced with bug spray.
Bug Spray and Drug Mixture Proves to be Dangerous
Officials are on edge about drugs laced with bug spray, which is also called “KD” when the bug spray is mixed with methamphetamine and “wasp” when mixed with marijuana, spice, and cigarettes. The concoction has posed a threat after several overdoses have been recorded per day. The First Responders compared the overdose effects of the risky mixture to being “like a zombie” and explained that it makes the users unable to communicate. The drug user sprays the bug spray over their drug of choice or sometimes even on a cigarette and then smokes it to get high. The Indianapolis Fire Department Capt. Chris Major added, “We find people passed out with it still in their hand. That is how fast it has an effect on them.” With almost a dozen bug spray related overdoses in a single day, the trend has raised concerns in the state. “They do not know what is in this stuff or who has made it,” Major stated. “So they are all taking a chance.”
Why Do Addicts Turn to Household Products for a High?
It’s not uncommon for addicts to turn to easily accessible household items to get high. There are some pretty bizarre drug trends that leave many non-drug users confused about why anybody would ever touch the substance. However, the nature of addiction is that the addict wants more, and sometimes, that more is anything that will get them outside of themselves. The unfortunate reality of using household products like bug spray to get high or intensify the effects of other high risk drugs is that it can be toxic and even fatal. Addiction is a disease that needs to be treated because without proper treatment, the addict will only continue to seek out substances as a result of a mental and physical obsession.
