Per Inside Edition, a Brhttps://youtu.be/YgvDqCY0M1Eooklyn suburb resembled a post-apocalyptic scene from the show The Walking Dead. Why? K2, a fake drug which several users got a very bad dose of on Tuesday, July 13th, 2016. 33 persons were taken to the emergency room to be treated after being spotted collapsing in the middle of the sidewalks, some right in front of the police.
As one spectator described it, “Walk up the block and you see nothing but people laying around, shaking on the ground.”
