(NaturalNews) Florida authorities are reporting disturbing "zombie-like" encounters on the city's streets. Cops in Tampa, Clearwater and St. Petersburg are being called to "horror-movie style scenes" where drugged up people are wandering around, slumped over in the streets and parks, as reported by the Daily Mail. The scenes look like some kind of zombie apocalypse scenario, with packs of unconscious people falling over and mumbling, unable to say their own name.
A wave of new synthetic drug variants called "spice" are being passed around and sold on the city streets. People who have no idea what they are taking are overdosing right in public. This "spice" is a synthetic drug with a chemical composition that varies from region to region. Drug makers are changing the ingredients as they go, using whatever they can to create a synthetic high.
Synthetic street "spice" turning people into zombies
Dozens of people are reportedly being rescued on the streets and taken to nearby hospitals. Investigators say the number of people using this "synthetic marijuana" is on the rise. The drug leaves people in a stupefied, speechless state. In Crest Lake Park, users can be seen slumped over, lying on the ground, immobile and docile. In some cases, users become vicious and violent. There have been reports of overdoses also at the St. Vincent de Paul Shelter.
Speaking to local news station WTVT police spokesman Rob Shaw commented, "We have noticed a serious uptick of Spice incidents lately that have turned into medical calls and it's become a serious drain on resources for the police department for the fire department and then in turn for doctors say at Morton Plant Hospital where the patients end up."
Major Eric Gandy of the Clearwater Police Department can be seen in a body camera video trying to approach drugged-up individuals in a park to help them, but many are so high that they can't even say their own name. "What's your name?" asks officer Gandy several times in the video, but he only gets a response from one guy, who mumbles, "my name?"
Officer Gandy reports that the number of people overdosing on spice has reached unprecedented levels. After responding to three overdoses in one day, officials say that most of the cases in Crest Lake Park are coming from the homeless population that roams the area.
Speaking to WFLA, officer Gandy said the scenes looked "like one of our zombie movies" and that he "had 15 people walking around in various states of incapacitation" all at once.
"It's mainly the homeless people that are using this drug," said area resident and business owner Jerome Freeland. He said the drug was once called "spice," but something stronger has been going around recently and is being referred to as "That Disney" or "FloKKA."
