The new drug craze which is destroying the worst areas of Philadelphia has made its way to NYC.

Tranq – the deadly “zombie” drug formally known as xylazine – is circulating across New York and has been tied to dozens of deaths in the state, Senate Majority Le ader Chuck Schumer warned Sunday, in an exclusive report by The New York Post.

Use of the flesh-rotting substance is “spreading” in Syracuse, Albany, Rochester and the Greater New York City area, Schumer said, as he called on increased federal funding for the state to help fight this scary situation.

“This new drug is a nightmare,” the New York Democrat said during an afternoon press conference.

“Xylazine is dangerous it is deadly. It is here. We have to fight and fund.”

Schumer was joined by popular YouTube influencer Doctor Mike Varshavski for the briefing, told reporters xylazine is increasingly being mixed with highly lethal fentanyl to heighten and extend the euphoric feeling the synthetic opioid is said to elicit.

“We saw tremendous negative side effects this drug had including respiratory depression, essentially shutting off the drive to continue breathing,” Varshavski said.

The scariest aspect of Tranq, a veterinary drug, is Narcan-resistant, meaning its effects cannot be reversed in the event of an overdose. It is also said to cause skin and bone to deteriorate or rot over time. The US Drug Enforcement Administration recently issued a public safety alert, announcing that the agency had seized mixtures of xylazine and fentanyl in 48 of the 50 states.

This bizarre new drug fad seems to have originated originally from  perhaps the most drugged out and destroyed inner city in America, run exclusively by “progressive” Democrats, the Kensington section of Philadelphia, Pa.

The area is so bad, entire You Tube channels are dedicated to documenting the nightmarish streets of Kensington, where drug addled losers walk around like literal zombies, nodding out in the middle of the street, passed out on the floor and leaning against walls  in a drug stupor, as the largest array of drugged out and diseased street walkers look to make a quick buck for the next fentanyl, tranq, and heroin fix. Kensington is so bad; it looks like a scene out of a horror movie on a regular basis.

Heroin is considered a “light” drug in Kensington, where the tranq zombies roam.

Schumer told The New York Post he wants the DEA to deploy a “diversion control team” to the Empire State to work with federal and local law enforcement in tackling xylazine. He also announced a “push” to put more federal dollars toward New York’s substance use and mental health budget.

Tranq, or Xylazine, is, according to Wikipedia, a pharmaceutical drug used for sedation, anesthesia, muscle relaxation, and analgesia in animals such as horses, cattle, and other non-human mammals. Veterinarians also use xylazine as an emetic, especially in cats. It is an analog of clonidine and an agonist at the α2 class of adrenergic receptor.

Currently, there is no specific antidote to treat humans who overdose on xylazine. Hemodialysishas been suggested as a form of treatment but is usually unfavorable due to the large volume of distribution of xylazine.

In addition, due to lack of research in humans, there are no standardized screenings to determine if an overdose has occurred. The detection of xylazine in biological fluids in humans involves various screening methods, such as urine screenings, thin layer chromatography (TLC), gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GC-MS) and liquid chromatography mass spectrometry (LC-MS).
