Americans use methamphetamine instead of wasp spray

Американцы используют вместо метамфетамина спрей от ос

Police in West Virginia warns that spray against wasps, many Americans use as an alternative meth – and it is dangerous to life.

The spray is available at almost any pharmacy or grocery store, but people use it for other purposes. Just last week in West Virginia, three people got an overdose of the substance. “This is a cheap solution, allegedly mimic the effects of methamphetamine and you don’t know what will be the result of the use,” says Sergeant Charles Sutfin (Charles Sutphin).

Users or combine a wasp spray with the drug, or absorb the spray by evaporation of atomized liquids on hot metal sheets with subsequent inhalation or injection.

According to LiveScience, sprays against insects contain the active ingredient, called PYRETHROID, which prevents the transmission of nerve signals. The substance also can lead to palpitations, cardiac arrest, labored breathing, headache, nausea, edema, convulsions and paralysis.
