The Story of Sizzurp

Hosted by

Good Food producer Gillian Ferguson reports on the history of sizzurp, a recreational drug that contains codeine promethazine cough syrup, soda and jolly ranchers. After high-profile rapper Lil Wayne was hospitalized from a suspected sizzurp binge, nationwide scrutiny over the cocktail ensued.

She interviews Lance Scott Walker, author of two forthcoming books about Houston hip hop culture and history, and Dr. Ronald Peters, Associate Professor at Texas University's School of Public Health.
