So many drugs have surfaced in the last few years which have victimized a lot of people, especially teenagers. These new kinds of drugs are often present in events and parties where people need some kind of “high” to have fun. But such have also killed a lot, with their detrimental effects and due to overdose.
Here is another victim of the latest drug craze called “Calvin Klein”. The drug killed a 17-year-old violin prodigy. The drug is said to be a combination of cocaine and ketamine which produces a euphoric high that is similar to the of ecstasy. The US National Center for Biotechnology Information said the deadly mix has become “popular among young drug abusers” and has been associated with an “increased risk of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection,” though the study didn’t provide an explanation for the link.

The drug combo killed Katya Tsukanova, who fatally collapsed June 18 at her Kensington home from an apparent overdose — and her family is now warning others about the drug craze, the Telegraph reported.
Her Russian billionaire father, Igor Tsukanov, said his daughter was a “smart girl, and she made one bad choice” as the drug’s popularity surges with young people.
“What can we parents do? The children will do what they want anyway, and they never tell you the truth,” he told the news outlet.
The late teen’s pal, who asked to remain anonymous, said the drug combo was the “new thing among Katya and her friends.”
“Not just them, though — it’s everywhere,” the friend told the Telegraph.
In the wake of the violinist’s death, social media users questioned whether the party drug’s “sexy name” played a role in its popularity.
“They should call it grim reaper to discourage kids,” one Twitter user wrote.
