Hey, Aamer Madhani, Maybe No Flesh-Eating Cocaine

AAMER MADHANI knows about cocaine

Cocaine, oho doesn’t love it? says USA Today tabloid writer AAMER MADHANI. It’s light, it’s powdery, and it goes great on french fries. Why, it might even help you party a little longer, and who doesn’t like that idea?

As it turns out: flesh. According to an ABC report, 80% of the cocaine in this country is cut with a small (very varying) amount of levamisole, a drug used to de-worm livestock. Might be something to think about next time you’re crammed into a bathroom stall with a little baggy and several of your not-so-closest friends. Your body essentially has a reaction to the drug that cuts off the blood vessels supplying the skin. Without those, the skin turns purple and starts to eat itself. Lovely!

“It’s important for people to know it’s not just in New York and L.A. It’s in the cocaine supply of the entire U.S.,” said Dr. Noah Craft, a dermatologist with the Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute, who, due to his knowledge of the drug, probably won’t be reenacting scenes from “Bright Lights, Big City” anytime soon. Levamisole also stops your bone marrow from creating white blood cells, which is slightly like having HIV.

Indeed: what’s the point in getting geeked to the gills with Bolivian marching powder if all it’s going to do is eat your face and your bone marrow? Will Rihanna sound that much better when your face is literally sliding off?

According to a comment on a 2010 story in Seattle’s The Stranger, this is the reason levamisole is used to cut cocaine:

Levamisole here in vancouver canada is mostly used to cut crack , because they doble their money , if a dealer cooks one ounce of coke, he adds another ounce of levamisole to it , becoming all together two ounces , and the users cant tell abd they think its base rock because they see only oil in the pipe and no dust left from the old cut that was baking soda .. Thats the reality of why they add levamisole to cocaine here in vancouver .. They sell the levamisole here for 1000 per kilo ..

The drug itself has been around since 1966 and is allegedly cut into the cocaine before it hits America (that mysterious nugget of information is from the same Stranger piece). While most of the cases of levamisole poisoning come from NYC and LA, those two markets trickle into the entire country’s supply.

In mice, according to Dr. Mike Clark at Harborview Medical Center, levamisole has the effects of cocaine without the actual effects of cocaine itself.

The whole thing is indeed a mystery. Why would there be this much of an otherwise expensive drug in the American supply of cocaine? Is this some sort of “Breaking Bad” vendetta? Or some Scooby Doo by way of David Cronenberg type mystery? One thing’s for sure: perhaps think twice before putting blow up your schnoz. There’s no telling what it may or may not be cut with.
