‘Purple Drank’ warning

Huron County Sheriff’s Office on Facebook: Huron County Sheriff's Office

Huron County is beginning to experience a new drug of abuse. ..............................ALERT...............................

The drug "lean" is a concoction also known as "syrup" or "the purple drink." This dangerous cocktail, which has shown up quite a bit in hip hop music and other types of media, combines prescription cough syrup and soft drinks for a potentially fatal high.

Lean is made from prescription cough syrup that contains promethazine and codeine. Promethazine is an antihistamine with a strong sedative effect, and codeine is a sedative cough suppressant which is produced from morphine. The purple color and grape-like flavor of this cough syrup give lean its other nicknames, "purple drank."
