While the youth in Ghana are abusing Tramadol, young Indonesians are doing the unthinkable by boiling used and new sanitary pads and drinking the water to get high, local media reports.
According to the Indonesian National Drug Agency (BNN), those who drink the concoction start to feel like they are ‘flying’ and hallucinations.
Several young people in Jakarta, the country’s capital have been arrested.
A 14-year old boy who got arrested told the local media how he prepares his concoction.
The young man told them he removes the pad from the wrapper and boils it for about an hour after which he allows the water to cool.
He told Pos Belitung that the sanitary pad is then taken and squeezed before drinking the water.
Reports from the local media indicate nappies are also been used by some people to get high.
