As if bath salts weren't bad enough, there's another nightmare drug on the loose that produces eerily similar results in its users -- namely murderous rage, inhuman strength, and a penchant for chewing on people's faces. It's called flakka, and it's pretty god-damned awful.

What is flakka?
Simply put, flakka is the popular name for the tongue-twisting alpha-pyrrolidinovalerophenone (or alpha-PVP), a synthetic drug that first began making waves in Florida back in 2014. Commonly sold for $5 per hit, the drug's ideal effects include euphoria and hallucinations, as well as a rise in body temperature, but even a slightly-too-high dose can result in anything from paranoid psychosis to cardiac arrest.
