Drug Sisha, the exterminator of the poor. An interview of detective Pelekasi Nikos Pelekasi to the newspaper “Pontiaki Gnomi“.
Sissa is the name of the hallucinogen that has recently been released in bars with methamphetamine as its main substance, mixed with stimulants and toxic substances such as solvent, lamp oil, bleach, battery fluids, ethanol, alcohol and even strippers. It is found in crystalline form and its admixture does not need to be done in a laboratory as even a kitchen is sufficient to get its final form.
Its price is 3-5 euros per dose, which is why it is called “the cocaine of the poor”.
It is used by inhaling through the nose, smoking or by injection. The effects are immediate for the user as for 24 hours it causes not suppression but stimulation, aggression, aggression, restlessness, irritation, insomnia and intense sexual desire.
The side effects are short, but also devastating for the user. From the first few days he loses weight, fills wrinkles due to the fact that fat melts quickly and teeth rot. The damage to vital organs is irreversible. User in his confession stated: “For ten years I have tried them all, it’s the shisha that kills you, it’s something different, it burns your insides, I won’t do it again although it’s cheap, 3 to 5 euros a dose.”
Experts say that schisha is 80% more destructive than heroin and that’s why they are lobbying for more detox centres. According to reports, a similar drug wiped out a whole generation in Argentina. Although many people cite the conditions of the economic crisis as the reason for the rise of Sisa, it is surprising that no other country that has experienced economic disasters other than Argentina has seen a similar emergence of this drug.
