Purple drank, sometimes called purple drank lean and many other names, is an illegal narcotic drink, usually prepared by mixing prescription cough syrups with a hard candy and flavored hard drink. The original concoction originated in Houston, Texas and is extremely popular among the urban or those living in the southern United States.. The drink is said to relieve those who consume it from a “cough stone”. This type of cough stone is made by consuming a large amount of cough syrups. People can purchase it legally in most states, but it is illegal to sell the product without a prescription in California, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Washington. In some states, including Rhode Island, the sale of purple drank is against the law, but it is legal to consume the product in accordance with the law.
The syrup and the hard candy are mixed together to make the drink. They can also be purchased separately. They can be purchased at gas stations, convenience stores, liquor stores and at many drug stores. It is also available online. The price range of the product varies greatly. Some packages contain only the syrup while others also contain a number of hard candy pieces.
There are various stories about how people begin to develop a taste for this tasty treat. Many believe that it was created due to the rapper Nelly along with his wife being sick and ended up in a hotel room and not having any food or water. Nelly was searching for something to drink so he decided to make his own mixture of water, coffee powder, soda, ice cream, lemon juice, molasses and whipped cream. When he went back to the hotel room, nobody knew that it was just a joke, but many people claim that it was so delicious that it was immediately legal.
People have been drinking purple lemonade for years. Many health clubs around the world offer their members nutritional drinks such as this. There are many stories from professional athletes that say they use the substance when training. Former Miss Brazil, Desiree Duran, is an avid user of the substance and was once spotted by a photographer drinking purple tea in a restaurant. She claimed that it tastes like chocolate.
Even though it has been deemed to be a “party” substance, many people have been drinking it for medicinal purposes as well. People who suffer from high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, muscle spasms and other diseases have reportedly been drinking purple drank lean for quite some time. Those who are overweight and need to lose weight are also believed to use it to help them shed unwanted pounds. People who are suffering from menstrual cycle disorders and are unable to have regular menstrual cycles are taking it to help alleviate the pain they are experiencing.
Even the United States government has approved of the substance. There have even been government grants given out to people who are willing to start a business selling it. The only problem is that there are very few suppliers around who are actually making and distributing the drink. The ones who do make them are a very small minority. This means that it can be difficult to find distributors in your area.
