Nyaope is een straat drug dat veel gebruikt wordt door jongeren in de Zuid Afrikaanse townships. Het is populair omdat het goedkoop, extreem verslavend, makkelijk om aan te komen is en bovendien maakt het snel high. Nyaope is, zoals elke harddrug, illegaal. Het wordt echter verkocht op praktisch elke straathoek in de Zuid Afrikaanse townships. De drug is extreem gevaarlijk; niet alleen omdat het zeer verslavend is, maar ook door de samenstelling van de drug, wat onder andere bestaat uit rattengif en HIV remmers. Deze ingredienten maken de drug goedkoop, maar zijn tevens funest voor de gezondheid en veiligheid. Het geeft de gebruikers een verlammend gevoel en omdat het zo verslavend is, gaan de dealers en gebruikers tot het uiterste. Het aantal berovingen in HIV/ AIDS klinieken in Soweto is drastisch gestegen door drugsbendes die de HIV remmers willen bemachtigen om aan de vraag te kunnen blijven voldoen. Dat maakt het dagelijks leven in de townships en voor de mensen die de HIV remmers nodig hebben om niet ziek te worden nog gevaarlijker.
