Understanding Tuci: A Comprehensive Overview
Tuci, often known by street names like “pink cocaine” or “tusi,” is a pink-tinted powder that typically contains a blend of substances such as:
As an illegal drug, it has recently become notorious for its potent side effects and substantial health dangers.
The Origins of Tuci
According to a report by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), Tuci first emerged in Latin America. Known as “cocaina rosada,” “pink cocaine,” or “tucibi,” it frequently contains Ketamine instead of Cocaine or 2C-B.
A Popular “Party” Drug with Risks
Despite its allure as a joyful and intense party drug, Tuci poses significant risks, including addiction. The National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) indicates that hallucinogens like Ketamine and MDMA, both components of Tuci, are used by over 7% of young adults aged 18-25, highlighting the need for increased awareness and intervention.
Physical and Psychological Impacts
Tuci’s effects include increased heart rate, high blood pressure, nausea, and hallucinations. Long-term use can lead to severe health issues like cardiovascular problems, depression, anxiety, and addiction.
Tuci vs. Traditional Cocaine
While they share a name, Tuci and traditional cocaine are quite different in composition, side effects, and health risks. Tuci’s synthetic blend, often dyed pink, combines hallucinogenic and stimulant effects, while traditional cocaine, derived from the coca plant, primarily delivers an intense, euphoric high.
