A clip of a young woman in Brazil under the influence of a synthetic drug informally called ‘The Zombie Drug’ has gone viral on social media. The name of this drug is Cloud 9, and has similar effects that have been seen with consumption of other synthetic drugs like Spice and Flakka. These drugs have been responsible for its abusers to act out in disturbing ways, some even gaining what
seems to be super strength, and engaging in violent acts.
The video surfaced on Facebook a few days ago and quickly went viral. The woman is laid out in the back of a truck scratching herself, looking around rapidly, and talking to herself. Her skin also appears to be disclosed as well as her eyes.
An NBC anchor commented saying that the drug is “unregulated and legal, readily available at convenience stores”. Could The Walking Dead soon become reality ?
