It's a Thing: Lean


Lean, purp, slurp, purple lean is a drink made popular by lyricists and producers in the Hip Hop community.

It has since filtered down into most genres and sub genres and even into your suburb. The kids in your tree, have more than likely spent a Friday night drinking lean.

David Beyever is a pharmacist who is working closely with a Johannesburg police station to educate the youth and eradicate the use of this potentially fatal drink. Through a campaign called #LeanOnme they are spreading awareness through a multi channel war on this codeine fuelled crisis. But, what is it? What hold does it have on the youth and how does it make you feel? Danny gets very candid in this podcast about her use of the popular drug and how it has affected here as she got older. If you have kids, you will want to listen to this!
