New Strain of Drug Creates Entire Subculture of Human Zombies Across The World

The zombie fascination is pop culture is indeed strong for ages already. There's a distinct interest about knowing what the "zombie" folklore can tell to its devoted audiences. That's why it is not gonna bet hat impossible if a drug can be invented to turn a human being to a living dead.

What would you do if dead men and women were walking the streets and some of them, their faces wan and eyes open, but filled with a terrible vacancy, stumble forward with arms out-stretched gets to invade your peaceful daily living?

Well, a new powerful strain has already made waves and emerged which produces a terrifying zombie-like effect in those who smoke it. It is called "SPICE" and it is taking the globe by storm.

What is SPICE? Spice is a synthetic high which falls into a category of drug-like substances that can be bought in shops or online without breaking the law, but which give the body the same artificial rush of endorphins - or 'high' - as illegal drugs such as cannabis or ecstasy. Black Mamba is a variation of Spice, a synthetic cannabinoid which has similar effects to natural cannabis. However it is much more potent and reacts more strongly with the brain's receptors. Regular use can cause a relapse of mental health illness or increase the risk of developing a mental illness especially if someone has a family history of mental illness. Earlier this year, a global drugs survey found that hospital admissions as a result of taking the herbal substance Spice have increased by one-third since 2014. Reported effects include convulsions, shortness of breath, kidney failure and cardiac arrest, as well as hallucinations and irreparable damage to the user’s mental health. Spice was made illegal in May this year.

It is estimated that up to 95% of the young homeless in Manchester are using it, many of them got hopelessly addicted in smoking it. And it is now being said that drug experts are warning of a Spice epidemic that is spreading from the North-West because it makes a wave of crime and casualties that the police and emergency services are struggling to cope with.
“And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.” Revelation 9:6 (KJV)
Is it the start of the end for mankind? or the days of our rational lives are already numbered?

 The said zombie crisis came to national attention recently following the viral upload of a creepy video footage which was shot by an office worker in Manchester, showing people under its influence. It has led to calls for Spice to be made a Class A drug. It seems that a highly unlikely drug first produced as a supposedly ‘safe’ synthetic cannabis alternative which was well known as something to be easily available as a legal high for years to British teenagers. And now, it could have morphed into a substance wreaking more destruction than heroin or crack cocaine, as some of the reports suggested. One user shared how addictive this drug is.
"It’s awful to come off it — you rattle,’ he told me. ‘I’ve tried to get off it, but it’s harder than gear [heroin]."

The drug was known to be one of the major factors of hazards and deaths and after a series of deaths were linked to this drug, the government acted by shutting down shops last May, when a new law was introduced banning all psychoactive substances said to impact mental health. However, it was too late for those already addicted and so the demand for Spice remained. Dealers of traditional hard drugs such as ‘white’ and ‘brown’ already started selling Spice, which is far cheaper and less risky to make locally than to import hard drugs. Its popularity is shockingly huge and seems it is not going to end anytime soon. No one can explain why the drug has taken hold so quickly or why in Manchester particularly. But price is a factor. So much is being produced that it’s half the price it was when sold as a ‘legal high’.
