With its catastrophic results, a new drug that apparently “Zombifies People’s Bodies” by rotting their skin is causing alarms and raising concerns in the US.
Drug overdoses have always been a problem on American streets, as one person dies of a drug overdose every five minutes in America. The substance known as Xylazine or Tranq, is creating mayhem in major cities across the country with its devastating effects.
Xylazine is an animal tranquillizer that is increasingly used as a synthetic cutting agent for opioids like heroin, which is popping up in cities all over the country. Use of the drug is increasing at exponential rates when it lands, causing outbreaks of skin infections and overdoses.
Tranq Dope is a mix of Fentanyl, the opioid that has decimated America’s youth, and the veterinary drug Xylazine. It is sold on the street for just a few dollars per bag.
