Flakka is an extremely addictive, illegal, controlled substance that comes in a crystalline rock form and can be swallowed, snorted, injected, or used in an e-cigarette and vaped. Flakka is produced from a compound known as alpha-PVP, synthetically derived and made from an amphetamin-like derivative of the drug cathinone. The physiological effects causes excited delirium, delusions, paranoia and hallucinations, incites violent fits, nightmarish visions, belligerency and aggression and gives its users seemingly superhuman strength.
