What's Sizzurp? Ask T.I. or the FDA

What's Sizzurp? Ask T.I. or the FDA
September 3, 2010 - Time.com

What's syrupy sweet, deep purple and entirely hazardous? No, it isn't Prince. It's sizzurp, a popular drink made with cough syrup (usually the prescription-strength kind with codeine), 7-Up and Jolly Ranchers candies.

Rapper T.I. (real name Clifford Harris Jr.) and his wife Tameka "Tiny" Cottle were arrested late Wednesday night in L.A. for drug possession when police searched the couple's car, after smelling marijuana wafting from it at a traffic stop, and found pills that were believed to be ecstasy. Photos taken of the car at the time of arrest also showed Styrofoam cups, an iconic symbol of sizzurp, sparking Internet rumors that the couple were abusing the drug-laced drink.

There has not been any confirmation that cough syrup was a factor in T.I. and Tiny's arrest, but the drink has long been popular within the hip-hop community. It is often mentioned in songs, like Three 6 Mafia's “Sippin' on Some Sizzurp” and Lil' Wayne's “Me and My Drank.” Since it's typically drunk from Styrofoam cups, music videos often use the cups as props to suggest the presence of the substance, while staying on the right side of the FCC. (LAWeekly has put together a top 10 list of sizzurp-inspired videos.) Unsurprisingly, sizzurp is also popular with teenagers — it's cheap and easy to make, even if you're underage. Meanwhile, the FDA has called for tighter restrictions on cough syrup to avoid abuse, including mixing sizzurp or the practice of "robotripping," in which people chug a bottle of cough syrup in an attempt to get a hallucinatory effect.

Also referred to as "purple drank" and "sippin' syrup," sizzurp is addictive and has the potential to contribute to overdose. Codeine and promethazine — the opiates in prescription-strength cough syrup — can be lethal when mixed with alcohol or taken in high doses. Even dextromethorphan, which is the active ingredient in most over-the-counter cough syrups, can cause major health problems, such as increased heart rate, fever and liver damage, when taken at sizzurp-levels, which can reach 25 times the recommended dose. Prescription-strength cough syrup even contributed to the 2008 death of rapper Pimp C, according to the Los Angeles County Coroner's office.

The FDA says that 8,000 emergency room visits in 2008 were caused by inappropriate use of cough syrup, both prescription and over-the-counter.  To combat the problem, the agency is meeting with a panel of experts on Sept. 14 and is considering an age requirement of 18 to buy over-the-counter syrup. That wouldn't really help 29-year-old T.I., but it's a start.

Crappy article about a crappy drug.

True about mixing opiates and alcohol, too. Not safe.
Too bad that nugget is in such a lame article.

How the fuck could you be riding in a bughatti and still drinking cough syrup? If you like DXM that much why not just get the straight dope then? Jesus he's dumb.

Yeah, terrible article, but I have been seeing a lot of buzz lately about tighter regulations on DXM-containing cough syrup.  Funny how they play the 8,000 hospitalizations a year card as if it is a public health issue.  There are over 30,000 acetaminophen overdose are reported to the American Association of Poison Control Centers every year . It is a leading cause of liver failure in the Western world and the leading cause of drug-induced liver failure in the United States.

This is the FDA once again serving interests that have nothing to do with public health and safety.

Codeine isn't that great a buzz to me. I'd much rather have some Percodans.

I was scripted a bottle of prometh/codeine cough syrup last winter when I had a bad sinus infection. Needless to say I saved it until I was better and then chugged the whole thing. Didn't do shit. Rappers don't know how to get high.

Sizzurp is made with prescription cough syrup, not OTC. Something the article fails to mention as well.

I'm sure there are kids out there who hear it in the music and want to be cool, but can only get OTC cough syrup and use that. But that is not sizzurp, and I am sure that neither T.I. or Lil' Wayne do that either.

It's just so much fun to drive around listening to music smoking weed, it's a shame that it makes it so easy to get pulled over and get into trouble.

I think that it's funny that folks actually are commenting on what lol... on what kind of cars these guys drive!  LOL :laugh2:
(I understand there was a picture of his car but the fact that other rappers' cars were brought into the equation.)

No, but seriously,  that's bad.

I mean, I don't know what 'Dio' drove or what his favorite drink was or any other musician for that matter. 
The music keeps me satisfied so I don't have to go peering into their personal lives.
and it's supposed to be about the music correct?
The musical talent is not there in rap.

Most all rap sucks dick, especially the ones who talk about bitches and their wrist watches!

Rappers are untalented jokes.
This, of coarse, being my 'opinion'.
So sorry if I offended anyone by this post. That was not my intent.  I just had to get that out there.
