Cough Syrup Used For Sizzurp Pulled From The Market
Posted by Joseph Lee on 04.23.2014



Bad news for certain rappers (and Justin Bieber): Actavis has pulled it's codeine-filled cough syrup, used for "sizzurp", off the market. TMZ reports that the syrup was pulled specifically because of its reputation as an abused drug. Both Bieber and Soulja Boy have not been shy about their love of "sizzurp". Soulja Boy regularly posts photos of Actavis bottles on Instagram.

A representative for Actavis said: "Given [recent media attention], Actavis has made the bold and unprecedented decision to cease all production and sales of its Promethazine Codeine product. This attention has glamorized the unlawful and dangerous use of the product, which is contrary to its approved indication."

Before the syrup was pulled, the street value was at $800. Now that the product is off the shelf, rappers are offering incredibly large amounts of money to get what's left. One "prominent" rapper has already offered his dealer up to $100,000 to get some.

Soulja Boy doesn't seem to be bothered. He posted a photo of six bottles on Monday. He wrote: "Soulja got the juice. They say the streets dry. I say you gotta be kiddin me. I serve everybody."
