BNN: PCC is Not Flakka

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - National Narcotics Agency (BNN) Rehabilitation Center announced that paracetamol caffeine carisoprodol or known as PCC is not considered as a type of narcotics like flakka. It is a drug prescribed by doctors to treat pain and relaxes the muscles.

“So it (PCC) isn’t a new type of narcotics such as Flakka,” said the Head of BNN Rehabilitation Center Jolan Tedjokusumo on Thursday, September 14.

Flakka is a type of "street drug" that has gained popularity in the United States and Europe. It is almost similar to cocaine which has been modified to make it dangerously more affordable to buy. The effects of Flakka can make a person acts hyperactively and mentally insane, like a zombie.

Jolan revealed that PCC should be controlled and monitored by the Food and Drug Monitoring Agency (BPOM) and not by the BNN. PCC is a drug that is often abused and is better known as somadril.

PCC is currently under the public’s spotlight following an incident where dozens of students in Kendari, Southeast Sulawesi, had consumed the drug and effectively caused them to hallucinate and experience seizures. The students are currently being treated at several hospitals in the region.
