Anorak | MDPV will turn you into a cross-dressing, goat-killing, human flesh-eating arsonist

MDPV will turn you into a cross-dressing, goat-killing, human flesh-eating arsonist

The kids are taking cannibal . It’s a drug called MDPV, which is short for Methylenedioxypyrovalerone.

The Sun reports on the drug in the story headlined:

Cannibal killer

New drug gives users urge to eat human flesh

The report is terrifying:

A TERRIFYING drug called “cannibal” that makes users want to bite other people’s flesh is tightening its grip on the British party scene. The chemical officially known as MDPV is one of a range of synthetic amphetamines labelled “bath salts”.

It is linked to schizophrenic episodes and serious physical health problems as well as horrific “cannibal attacks”.

How dangeorus is it?

They are known to be even more damaging for users’ mental health than substances such as ecstasy and cocaine.

And they turn you into a pyromaniac:

Two months ago, police warned increasing bath salt use was fuelling a wave of assaults and revealed a disturbing trend of takers setting fire to their homes. The drug was even linked to the murder of 22-year-old shopworker Cerys Yemm by “cannibal killer” Matthew Williams in South Wales in November.

A key witness said Williams had “an ounce” of mephedrone on him and had been injecting himself with it before the attack, where he was allegedly found eating his victim’s face.

Williams died after he was shot by a police Taser. A source told media :

“He had an ounce of miaow-miaow on him and at some stage he injected himself… He was also taking large quantities of prescription beta-blockers given to him to help overcome his drugs habit when he was released from jail.”

The Sun  told readers:

CANNIBAL killer Matthew Williams bit off part of his victim’s face after taking a huge cocktail of mind-bending drugs, a friend revealed. Boozed-up Williams, 34, smoked cannabis and took prescription drugs before injecting miaow-miaow shortly before mauling Cerys Yemm.

He pretty much took anything he could get his hands on, by the sound of it. But how did a man in a bail hostel get a woman into his room and so many drugs (he’d been released from a prison term for attacking his girlfriend)?

Convicted thug Williams, who was released from prison just weeks earlier, told pals he was hearing voices and hallucinating before savaging the 22-year-old in his hotel room.

So. Cannibal was “linked” to the killer. But there is no proof that it triggered the horrednous crime. He had drunk a lot and had a history of serious mental helth issues.

Williams, 34, died after being shot with a Taser by police.

Previously, we’ve ben told that bath salts drove Charleston, West Virginia man Mark Thompson to  wander around the woods in a bra and panties and covered in the blood of his neighbor’s pygmy goat, which he had killed in his bedroom. He had been high on “bath salts” for three days.

And the Mirror told us that bath salts would end sopcial cohesion.

One user told the Sean O’Rourke show on RTE Radio One that it was the worst drug he had ever seen. He said: “I’ve seen people strung out on it now, that are injecting it, smoking it.They’re paranoid 24/7, they think people are after them, looking for things that aren’t there. It’s crazy. It’s starting to take a hold and when it does Dublin is going to be ruined because of it.”

But the  Sun is upping the ante. It looks for more examples of cannibal at work:

It was the cannibal line of bath salts which was linked to a series of bizarre biting attacks involving British tourists abroad last year. Connor Moore, 22, of Walsall, West Mids, was partying in Magaluf nightclub Bananas last summer when a thug high on cannibal leapt at him, biting a chunk out of his ear.

Was the thug high on cannibal? The Daily Mail reproted:

Speaking to the Sunday Mirror, Mr Moore, from Walsall, West Midlands, said: ‘It was like he was possessed. The pain was so excruciating I passed out.’  The rep also said the attacker had been on the drug cannibal which is believed to send users into a demented state where they bite people.

We don’t know. He might have been.

The Sun adds example 3

In another assault involving bath salts last summer, ten cops in Majorca struggled to arrest a British tourist believed to be high on cannibal after he tried to bite sunbathers on a beach. The man, who later admitted he had taken “a load of drugs” tried to sink his teeth into police and ambulance staff before screaming wildly as he was pinned to the floor.

The man had taken lots of drugs.

He might have taken cannibal. He might not have. A crazed loon might not make the best witness to what he had or had not taken. And there is no toxicology report linked to his antics. None of this is to say that MDVP is not dangerous. Of course it is. It’s designed to alter your mind. And mind’s can be unpredictable things.

There was also an incident where a 17-year-old English girl had to be hospitalised in Magaluf after biting people when her drink was apparently spiked with cannibal. Users in Ibiza became ill after taking the drug and medical staff described users as acting “more like zombies than patients”.

So. Still no proof that the drug make you eat people.

The Sun then buys some online:

…Our single gram cost £19.90, more than £30 cheaper than the equivalent quantity of cocaine. But by ordering in bulk, it is possible to reduce the price to as little as £10 a gram.

The low price is said to be one of the major factors in its growing popularity.

Well, yes.

Such is the drug’s fearsome reputation that many users call it the “most dangerous powdered evil”, saying it has left them unable to control their own body and caused panic attacks.
