To create Lean, a popular drink originated from Houston Texas, you require the following for the original formula:
  • -Promethazine w/Codeine VC <- Sizzurp (active ingredient)
  • Original Sprite Soda <- Mixing ingredient (although different flavors of sprite are now used, such as sprite remix)
  • Jolly rancher candy <- Flavor additive 
Put it all in a styrofoam cup and enjoy. The codeine is mainly responsible for the euphoric feeling after drinking lean. Promethazine causes motor skill impairment, lethargy, extreme drowsiness, as well as a dissociative feeling from all other parts of the body, specifically the stomach and digestive system. If it doesn't have promethazine w/ Codeine, it isn't real sizzurp. 
The mixed drink combination known as "lean", is normally the color purple, due the added ingredient sizzurp, which is originally a dark purple syrup. There are other colors of sizzurp which can be added to create lean, but the purple is the true sizzurp  Urban Dictionary

Marijuana -Fatal Car Crashes Happen More Often Than Usual on 4/20, Study Finds

Normalizing pot use among kids -- which is what happens when brands hitch their wagons to 4/20 -- poses real health risks to kids. You can lecture about how bad pot is for growing brains and try to get kids to wait as long as possible to try it -- and that may work. But also consider helping kids think critically about the content they see online. Asking questions and seeing where they lead may make 4/20 and the brands that support it not look so groovy after all.

(TIME)  April 20, also known as “420,” is a day popular with many marijuanasmokers who see it as a “national holiday” of sorts and celebrate by getting high. The term “420” originated in the 1970s with a group of California high schoolers who would regularly meet after school at 4:20 p.m. to smoke weed.

  • All JUUL e-cigarettes have a high level of nicotine. According to the manufacturer, a single JUUL pod contains as much nicotine as a pack of 20 regular cigarettes.  

  • News outlets and social media sites report widespread use of JUUL by students in schools, including classrooms and bathrooms.

  • The device senses when you take a pull from the mouthpiece and heats up to vaporize the liquid inside. According to the manufacturer, it has special temperature-regulation technology to prevent overheating or combustion.

  • E-cigarettes come in many shapes and sizes. Most have a battery, a heating element, and a place to hold a liquid.

  • Some e-cigarettes look like regular cigarettes, cigars, or pipes. Some look like USB flash drives, pens, and other everyday items. Larger devices such as tank systems, or “mods,” do not look like other tobacco products.

  • E-cigarettes are known by many different names. They are sometimes called “e-cigs,” “e-hookahs,” “mods,” “vape pens,” “vapes,” “tank systems,” and “electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS).”

  • Using an e-cigarette is sometimes called “vaping” or “JUULing.”
