"Robo" and "syzurp," new threat to youth

The Bayview Police Station newsletter reported recently that several arrests for illegal possession of Promethazine-Codeine Syrup, a Schedule V narcotic, have been made. Community young people are vulnerable to this highly-addictive drug.

According to the newsletter, "What is of particular concern is that many youth and young adults are abusing the narcotic which is commonly referred to by the street names: "robo" and "syzurp." The drug is frequently mixed with 7up or Sprite and has a heroinlike effect"
