Purple Drank is a intoxicating beverage also known by the names lean, sizzurp, and liquid codeine. It is commonly abused by southern rappers and wannabe suburban teenagers. It is a mixture of Promethazine/Codeine cough syrup and sprite, with a few jolly ranchers and/or skittles thrown in. Promethazine with codeine, consumed in such large amounts as is popular with such southern rappers as lil wayne, slim thug, and Big Moe, produces an opiate-like high that is potentiated by the Promethazine. Promethazine by itself will not produce a high. The beverage must be sipped slowly, and not guzzled, in order to avoid unconciousness and/or life threatening overdose.
Purple Drank must be served in a styrofoam cup, otherwise it will not be considered Purple Drank by the majority of the Purple Drank abusing community.
Purple Drank is NOT:
-ANY SYRUP CONTAINING DEXTROMETHORPHAN
-Hydrocodone with Promethazine
-Any syrup containing ANY drug ingredient other than Promethazine and codeine.
-Liquid Codeine. Purple drank is codeine dissolved in syrup. The codeine molecules are not actually in the liquid phase.
