One woman named Vanilla shares her struggles with Flakka well into her nine months of pregnancy. She did conceive, but has no recollection of giving birth. Flakka is very cheap costing the user a mere $5 on the streets. First appearing in Broward County, it took only a few months to take off. Vanilla’s story is not uncommon and drug addiction can affect anyone.  Police and officials are hoping that the “$5 insanity” drug will eventually make it’s way out, but until then warnings about the dangerous drug remain on high alert.
