The Cause


What is flakka?

Alpha-PVP, or flakka, is a synthetic stimulant that is, chemically, similar to amphetamines. It has also been compared to a combination of methamphetamines and crack cocaine. It is similar to “bath salts,” another so-called designer drug that gives users extreme highs. (This is not the bath salts you may be putting in your tub)  Called “$5 insanity” by some, alpha-PVP causes a condition known as “excited delirium.” This produces paranoia, hallucinations, hyperstimulation and, in the extreme, violent actions. It has also been connected to several suicides. Medically, the drug can lead to a heart attack, kidney damage or kidney failure. It can quickly raise body temperature to dangerous levels.

A movie with a mission

We believe that stories are what shape a generation. FlakkaZ aims to be a movie with a mission to not just entertain but serve as a warning.  We hope that audiences will walk away informed and encouraged to stay clear of  the dangerous and sometimes deadly drug "Flakka".
