Psychoactive drug made from DEAD BODY BONES has made Sierra Leone declare a national emergency

85

Sierra Leone at the moment is in emergency as drug abuse sweeps across the country like virus.

It is a case of ‘all hands’ on deck there, even cops are tasked to guard cemeteries in the capital of Freetown, to stop young men from digging up skeletons to get high. 

About the Drug

The psychoactive drug, Kush, is a drug made from a variety of substances, including toxic chemicals, herbs, cannabis, disinfenctant but one of its main ingredients is ground-up human bone, as they contain traces of sulphur, which allegedly can enhance the drugs effect. 

It is believed that the sharp spike in abuse of the drugs has caused hundreds of young men to die from organ failure.

The Way it Works

The zombie drug which first emerged in Sierra Leone around six years ago induces a long-lasting, hypnotic high which can detach users from reality for several hours.

Sierra Leone’s President Bio in a televised broadcast on Friday said: ‘Our country is currently faced with an existential threat due to the ravaging impact of drugs and substance abuse, particularly the devastating synthetic drug kush.’

Efforts In Place

The president has since set up a National Task Force on Drugs and Substance Abuse, which will mean having centres in every district which are ‘adequately staffed by trained professionals to offer care and support to people with drug addiction’.

Between 2020 and 2023 admissions to the Sierra Leone Psychiatric Hospital with illnesses linked to kush rose by almost 4000 per cent, with the vast majority being young men between the ages of 18-25.
