Getting high on HIV drugs in S Africa

Anti-retroviral drugs used to treat HIV/Aids are being bought and smoked by teenagers in South Africa to get high.

Reports suggest that the drugs are being sold by patients and even healthcare staff for money.

Schoolchildren have been spotted smoking the drugs, which are ground into powder and sometimes mixed with painkillers or marijuana.

Aids patients themselves have been found smoking the drugs instead of taking them as prescribed.

With all due respect MadameConcorde; we have had patients taking suppositories orally, despite clear instructions that the medication were to be taken per rectum. Now if that oral suppository does not get you on some sort of high.....  Wink

I think the solution is clear enough.

Ban all HIV drugs.

Are you sure that they are not mixing this up with OxyContin?
