Flakka (technically "alpha-PVP"popularly referred to as "bath salts"), is a drug which has gained notoriety in recent years due to the extreme effects it causes, and outlandish behavior demonstrated by its users. Those who take flakka are often compared to zombies.
Several assaults and fatalities have been reported due to flakka/bath salt use, like this case of a college student taking the drug, then stabbing a couple and eating the man's face:
Sullivan, MO police Lt. Patrick Johnson released a statement describing the peculiar behavior of the addicts:
"Barking like dogs, running up and down the street or other farm animals, entering peoples homes, breaking into a business, yelling outside of local businesses we saw a lot of activity this weekend.”
