Sure, You’ll Get High, But…

The New York Times reports that drug addicts who can’t score the painkillers they need to get high are turning to…

…are you sitting down…

anti-diarrhea medicine.

According to the Times the high is real and can be powerful, and while there’s no data on Imodium addiction, doctors are even seeing cases in emergency rooms and deaths from diarrhea medicine.

So the junkies are getting high on Kaopectate substitute these days, but you have to wonder: how are they dealing with the, um, side effects? Or if you’re that high that often, does it just not matter anymore?

    As the saying goes, holy shit. Seriously? Immodium can make one high?? Unbelievable. Oh, the things I learn from you…..

      Well, I think you’d need to take a LOT of Imodium, but for folks desperate for a high, sometimes it’s the only game in town.

      But oh! those repercussions!
