Justin Bieber

The Day the Sizzurp Died

Main Ingredient Yanked

Party's over for Justin Bieber, Soulja Boy and a bunch of hip hop stars who love sizzurp -- aka lean, aka codeine cough syrup -- because their brand of choice is getting pulled from pharmacies. 

But before JB cries in his double-cup, he should know ... this whole mess is probably his fault.

Am not sure anyone ever added this, but as someone who tries to sing, I use sucrets to get my throat clear to perform.

Could the cough syrup thing just be an extension of that taken much further. The benefit is keeping the voice smooth....

I just hope these people don't move up to the more powerful opiates to get their buzz. Hopefully they'll leave it alone.

Your body can only process a certain amount of codeine before it stops processing it altogether, making codeine very difficult to overdose on and one of the safest drugs around. Safer than alcohol. Imagine if alcohol stopped getting you drunk after a certain point.

Rich dick should just buy real drugs. Drinking cough medicine to up his street cred isn't working.

Also, irrelevant. You can't buy codeine OTC in the US.

Bie-bag is a canuck so this article is probably about Canada- aka, no one cares TMZ.

Seriously? I have to drink "sizzurp". Probably because you couldn't handle bourbon, whiskey, or scotch like a ****ing man.

Back in the 70s the kids were drinking Benalyn with codeine to get high and they weren't mixing it with any soft drinks. This is really not a new practice so what is all the excitement about. If it's been done here in Canada for over 50 years, I'm sure it's been done in the states too. Of course, in Canada you don't need a script to buy it. I don't know about in the states, but from the sounds of things you must need one.

all about the money    

There are other manufactures of codeine enhanced cough syrups so the lean freaks will just switch brands. However, its so wide spread its only a matter of time before someone does die from it, and Activus or whoever they are probably see the writing on the wall. Once someone dies from it, the manufacture is going to get sued. It is the American way after all...while the person that dies was using the product illegally and not as intended the manufacture would still be at fault because they made it. Now when Justina OD's (or someone else) Actavis won't be the one being sued.
