Oxi: New Drug Terrifies Brazil
The Rio Times ^ | April 26, 2011 | Patricia Maresch

Posted on 06/02/2011 3:06:56 PM PDT by Clintonfatigued

It looks like crack, but it is much cheaper, four times more lethal and called “oxi” or “oxidado” (rust). It’s a cocaine derivative, just like crack, but it contains kerosene or gasoline, acetone, battery fluid and other chemicals. The highly addictive drug is smoked, but there are also cases of oxi being grounded up in cigarettes or snorted as powder, and has been showing up in Brazil in alarming rates.

Oxi is known as ‘the drug of death’ because it’s extremely harmful to the body and addictive right after the first try. “You use oxi once, and you want to use it two, five, ten, twenty times,” a 25-year-old oxi-addict told Brazilian TV.

Users take on a yellowish skin color, lose weight very quickly and develop liver problems. They start to look like emaciated living corpses in just a few weeks time. The drug causes stomach aches, vomiting and constant diarrhea, but perhaps the most alarming fact is that most users die within a year.

Gasoline acetone and battery acid?! I think this is a drug that will burn itself out pretty quick, I don’t think being a habitual user of that will be survivable for more than a couple of months.

A variety of home cooked meth? Any competent recipe would flush out the raw solvents, chemicals, etc. used to process it, but meth alone will do what they say.

This is yet another reason that we need to end our Open Borders policy ASAP. So far it seems to be a South American phenomenon and it needs to be kept out of the U.S.

I wonder if they’d mind if we handed this out in our prisons?

Well, there goes one political constituency that’s been nothing more than a pestilence.

The maximum security prisons? I suppose there is a case to be made for that.

Whoops, scratch that last post. If that happened, it would inevitably find its way outside the prison and that would be the worst thing that could happen.

the kind of moron who would smoke that is too stupid to live. I say distribute it far and wide and let nature take its course. The next real estate boom might come from the inner cities.

Something like this, called bazuco, made the rounds of Colombia about twenty years ago. Employed as a cigarette, it was a killer. Eventually, it so scared everyone that it was rejected.

That’s usually the path for these kind of cocktails, eventually people realize that Russian Roulette has higher survival odds and less painful death so they stop.

As with Meth, I’m wondering what part of “battery acid” do these junkies think makes this a good idea to ingest.

I just hope they find a necessary ingredient that only idiot liberals use (think: Starbucks coffee) so the government will demand innocent users must sign to buy it in drug stores just because SOME junkies might use it to make drugs. After all, that what they’ve done to us Sudafed users.

Oxi might lead to kids to harder drugs, like huffing “Jenkem”.

Bogus Jenkem was called “Butthash” on the warning.

Huh-huh-huh.

Looks like this will be a self-limiting phenomenon.

“Users take on a yellowish skin color, lose weight very quickly and develop liver problems.”

Sounds like they develop jaundice. And kills their livers.

Reefer Madness gone wild. Funny how a scary drug story is met with so much credulity here.
