Wow. This stuff (lean, purple drank) is more out of control than I ever imagined. Disclosure: I am a huge fan of 2 Chainz who is a big user and promoter of this purple drank, but in no way would I ever promote anyone to drink this stuff in any way shape or form.
Federal authorities say they have cracked a ring that banked at least $10 million and used its own renegade pharmacies to purchase 97,000 pints of prescription-strength cough syrup and smuggle them from California to Houston to make a deadly potion wildly popular in the hip-hop world.
Wow. I had no idea that athletes were drinking this stuff.
