Drugs are certainly bad for people and quitting drugs, and going to rehab is generally the right move, but it’s not every day the users come to that realization themselves while they’re high. Melbourne police restrained two men in separate instances while they were under the influence of Flakka, a street drug with shockingly negative effects. The first man was found hiding behind trees and running through traffic on the morning of June 29, before being cornered by police and taken to a hospital to come down. The second incident occurred later that afternoon, where a man in the Melbourne Regional Medical Center began acting erratically and violently in the waiting room, even yelling that he’d never do drugs again, after taking heroin laced with Flakka. Hopefully he keeps his promise, for everyone’s sake.
