Synthetic marijuana is nothing to sneeze at. In fact, it’s nothing to even try smoking, either, because it’s dangerous, dangerous stuff. A street corner in Brooklyn, where Bushwick meets Bedford-Stuyvesant, has become known as “zombie corner” because of the massive amount of K2 addicts gathering there. During one weekend day, 33 people passed out in the same neighborhood due to drug overdoses, turning Brooklyn into a George Romero movie.
It’s been dubbed the Walking Dead outbreak, and unlike the face-eating spice zombie from Miami, these zombies were slurring their words, stumbling around, and unable to walk or stand. At least they weren’t violent, right? Still, that’s a huge drain on resources, and dozens of people throwing up, urinating, and passing out in the middle of the street is bad.
The drug is known on the streets as AK-47 24 Karat Gold, and it is 85 times as powerful as traditional marijuana and 50 times more powerful than K2, the most common fake pot sold. The drug, patented by Pfizer as amb-fubinaca, is made by chemists in China and distributed via the Internet and, apparently, local stores in Brooklyn.
