Mass-produced in China, trafficked from

$1 a KILO — why the flesh-rotting zombie
drug 'tranq' has the DEA terrified

Original Article

A cheap animal tranquilizer being mass-manufactured in China and flooding America's illicit drug supply is terrifying health officials. Xylazine, or 'tranq' as it's known on the street, has been dubbed a 'zombie drug' due to the hunched-over, lifeless state it leaves users in and fact that it causes users' bodies to erupt in gaping wounds. It is mainly being mixed with fentanyl to create a fatal cocktail, which the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) has described as 'the deadliest threat our country has ever faced.'

With the NBA's love affair with China, players will probably want to invest in it. Maybe advertise it on their shoes.

DEA does not give a damn. The Administration (and Paul Ryan & RINO crew) wants Americans to drop dead. Otherwise they would have SECURED THE BORDER.

A measure of cynicism is OK here. Darwin is at the table now and as horrific as the proceedings are... we won't be losing the best or brightest (statistically). Don't attack me - aim your outrage at our "elites" who do not care for the lesser of us (or much for the rest, either).

In other more rational times, China's complicity in this drug threat would be grounds for massive political, economic, and even military retaliation. Don't want to interrupt the Bidens' flow of kickback money, though.

Long ago, we should have had a serious as a heart attack southern border wall whose very appearance and towering strength reflected the nation described in our founding documents. A fully and generously elite Border Patrol should have struck fear into bad guys wanting to invade illegally. We never did and we are so dang easy now to invade with the help of an evil tyrannical Washington DC administration and a weak political party as adversary. God help us. China is not afraid to send anything our way and their men are taking positions up in the interior of our country.

Well, V.P. Kammie (Heels-Up herself!) gave a speech the other day where she mentioned 'lower population' leading to less pollution. Sounds like this will 'encourage' some of the dopers to knock it off, and will kill the ones who won't stop. A way to get rid the cities of the worst of the worst. Who wants to bet that once the Left realizes -and admits- what's going on, it will be a full-on National Health Emergency, and the HairSniffer's handlers will spend Trillions on 'research' to 'cure this horrible plague' affecting the poor 'victims'..... even though the only people directly affected are those taking it, presumably voluntarily.

Some here who advance the position that it's not a worry to them, or that it serves those 'losers' right should consider this: FTA: 'Because xylazine is usually fixed with fentanyl or heroin, it is commonly injected - but can also be swallowed, smoked, or snorted.' If it can be swallowed, it can be given to someone who can take it unknowingly. THAT is a terrifying possibility. China really does want us dead, and this is merely another prong of their attack. Others include: buying our president and degrading our military with woke BS.

The Biden family has a lot invested in China and gangland cartels from all over the world. He doesn’t care about the American people. He hates us and so does his puppet master BHO. There has got to be a reckoning and it has got to come from America’s men. Their fundamental job is to keep their families safe. It is written in their DNA. Argue about women’s rights all you want but with an effeminate and prissy male population the country is toast.

My concern about this drug (and Fentanyl) is that either or both are used to contaminate our food or water supply. Otherwise, the primary victims will be people who willingly inject it, snort it, smoke it or eat it. I have little or no sympathy for people who take illegal street drugs. They're playing Russian Roulette with their bodies, and if their time is up, so be it.

David Weiss, the justice official prosecuting Hunter Biden for tax crimes, had his college and law school fees paid in part by bribes from tax cheats, legal documents show. Weiss' father, Meyer Weiss, worked as an IRS agent in Philadelphia from 1955 to 1984. He was caught accepting over $200,000 in bribes from businessmen seeking to break federal tax laws, and was sentenced four years in prison. Meyer spent almost $71,020 on David's college and law school tuition, in part financed by the bribe money, a 1995 US tax court ruling said.
