Synthetic drug “C’est Pas Bien” has allegedly found its way to Rodrigues. A young boy is suspected to have consumed the drug, which led to him displaying violent behaviour.
The first case of consumption of synthetic drugs has allegedly been detected in Rodrigues. A student from Rivière-Coco is said to have displayed great violent behaviour such that his family has had to call the police. He was then arrested by the Anti-Drug and Smuggling Unit on August 26.
The boy seems to have consumed the synthetic drug called “C’est Pas Bien”.
When he was being arrested, he reacted violently: l’Express.mu reports that he even damaged the vehicle of the police. When he was taken to the hospital, he was very aggressive.
The synthetic drug in question is considered to be extremely harmful. One is promised ecstasy for at least three hours upon consumption but it can also drive a person to mental conditions. What further exacerbates the problem is that noone has been able to decipher the contents of the concocted drug. It resembles black pepper, seemingly with a strawberry flavour, but with bad taste. It is rumoured that it contains rat poison and insecticides.
