Xylazine, an animal sedative used as a drug in the United States, is cheap, potent, and destructive to people.

This drug, also known as Trank, can even cause serious injuries according to US health officials, necrosis, rotting of the skin, can lead to amputation.

Xylazine is found in more and more illegal drugs, for example, mixed with fentanyl, and is very often found in people who die of an overdose.

Although it is not as publicized as fentanyl – a substance that is widespread according to authorities and causes 100,000 deaths per year in the country – the drug is widespread in neighborhoods such as Kensington in Philadelphia (Pennsylvania), Which is considered one of the biggest markets. Open-air medicine opened from the east coast.

Its ravages can be seen on its streets: dozens of people lying on the pavement, taking drugs in plain sight, bent from the effects of the drug or walking like corpses through the streets littered with syringes dumped on the ground.

All this while authorities and civic organizations are constantly distributing new syringes to prevent the transmission of diseases, as well as overdose kits such as Narcan, which are administered through the nose and reduce the potentially fatal effects of excessive drug use. Let’s reverse.

Xylazine is also used to commit physical or sexual assaults, as “it can incapacitate the user for a period of time and cause some amnesia in those who do not realize what has happened to them”. “

One of the most visible consequences of Xylazine, the FDA warns, is “severe skin lesions, patches of dead and decaying tissue that become easily infected and, if left untreated, can lead to amputation.”

The United States designated this zombie drug as an “emerging threat” in order to free up funds to fight the substance wreaking havoc in the country.
