( Natural News ) An animal tranquilizer typically used for horses is killing thousands in Philadelphia and other U.S. cities .
Xylazine, a drug known on the streets as “tranq,” can be lethal when mixed with heroin or fentanyl and can cause severe wounds and sores that can result in amputations. City health officials said some people are injecting the drug unwittingly, but others seek out the sedative to lengthen the high that they experience through traditional opioids.
It poses a major public threat . Aside from being potentially lethal, the drug can also cause necrosis that can lead to loss of fingers, toes and limbs. If an overdose does not kill the user, it can cause their breathing to stop long enough to cause brain damage or other irreparable harm.
Xylazine is sold under the brand names Rompun, Sedazine and AnaSed and has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for veterinary medicine only. It is used as a sedative, analgesic and muscle relaxant for horses and cattle. In people, the drug is so powerful, it can “knock out” users for six to eight hours, which is far longer than most opioids. This could also put users at risk for sexual assault, robbery and other crimes.
Advocates say that open sores and wounds can also delay people from getting addiction treatment because many rehab facilities do not accept those with untreated lesions. Moreover, overdose reversal drugs such as naloxone won’t stop their effects
Adam Al-Assad of Savage Sisters, which has been out at McPherson Park treating wounds at pop-up clinics, said they had been trying to get the attention for tranq use for a year, but there are very few who cared to listen. Tranq use has increased massively in recent years
Xylazine was first detected on the streets about a […]
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
