100 Percent Fed Up reports – A new drug that is making its way across America is literally rotting the skin of users.
Xylazine, which has been approved for veterinary use but not for use in humans, acts as a sedative and is a non-opioid drug that does not respond to Narcan. The drug, which is rotting the skin of drug users, is currently most prevalent in major Democrat-controlled cities and is also referred to as “tranq dope.”
The zombie drug is most prevalent currently most prevalent in Democrat-controlled major cities like Philadelphia, New York, Chicago, San Fransisco, and Los Angeles, where Dr. Gary Tsai, the director of substance abuse prevention and control with the LA County Department of Public Health, believes the drug’s prevalence “would increase deaths from overdoses.” Tsai told the Los Angeles Times, “The main concern is we’re already amid the worst overdose crisis in history, nationally and locally.”
Western Journal reports – Jen Shinefeld, a Philadelphia Health Department epidemiologist, told STAT, “The wounds, for lack of a better term, are gnarly.”
Joseph pointed out that these abscesses are occurring in users regardless of how they ingest the drug. In other words, they are not caused by injection site infections and can appear anywhere on a drug user’s body.
The substance, which seemed to first appear in Philadelphia before migrating west to San Francisco and Los Angeles, was used for cutting heroin, but, most recently, it has been discovered in fentanyl and other illicit drugs.
New York Post reports – Xylazine causes sedative-like symptoms, such as excessive sleepiness and respiratory depression, as well as raw wounds that can become severe and spread rapidly with repeated exposure. The crusty ulcerations, which can become dead skin called eschar, can result in amputation if left untreated.
“It’s too late for Philly,” Shawn Westfahl, an outreach worker with Prevention Point Philadelphia, told the Times. “Philly’s supply is saturated. If other places around the country have a choice to avoid it, they need to hear our story.”
People with substance use disorders who get hooked on the zombifying drug believe the emerging substance killed “any kind of joy” that came with getting high.
“Tranq is basically zombifying people’s bodies,” Sam, 28, told Sky News. “Until nine months ago, I never had wounds. Now, there are holes in my legs and feet.”
According to a 2022 report, xylazine has been discovered in 36 states. In New York City alone, the drug was found in 25% of samples, per the Times.
The “tranq drug,” sadly, is just one more deadly drug that will kill individuals across America as the fentanyl crisis created by Joe Biden’s open border policies rages on. Meanwhile, billionaire Democrat donor George Soros will continue to spend a king’s ransom to elect soft-on-crime prosecutors across America, and emboldened members of drug cartels, who are walking across our borders with deadly fentanyl drugs, know all they only need is a small trafficked child under their arm to obtain a free pass into the greatest nation on earth—but for how long?
