Batch of Contaminated, Flesh-Rotting Cocaine Hits the United States Yayo Market

Fucking with the devils dandruff is already gambling with your shit as it is and often the t's tainted with levamisole which tends to make you skin break out in all sorts of nasties. More after the jump:

Beware! There's a new batch of cocaine on the streets of New York and L.A. It's tainted with levamisole, a chemical used for deworming livestock. And, according to a study by the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, it eats your flesh and makes you irreversibly ugly.

The report, published online in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, said six patients developed purple-colored patches of necrotic skin on their ears, nose, cheeks and other parts of their body and, in some instances, suffered permanent scarring after they had used cocaine. According to the U.S. Department of Justice, up to 70-percent of cocaine in the U.S. is contaminated with levamisole, which is cheap and widely available.

"We believe these cases of skin reactions and illnesses linked to contaminated cocaine are just the tip of the iceberg in a looming public health problem posed by levamisole," said study author Noah Craft, MD, PhD, Los Biomedical Research Institute at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center. "We have had several more cases since we wrote this report," he said.

"In one of the more interesting ones, the patient used cocaine again and developed the same skin reaction again. He then switched drug dealers and the problem cleared up."

It's believed that producers add levamisole into cocaine batches because "it can cause a small high that adds to coke's kick," reports the New York Daily News.

Here's what this stuff is doing to people cosmetically:
