So many new drugs and drug concoctions have made their way onto the market and into homes in recent year and are deadly.

Apparently, all this attention was too much heat for drank’s unwitting supplier, Activis, which has halted production and sales of this highly potent cough syrup (nicknamed Prometh) for fears of substance misuse.
