A video that is being passed around on Twitter shows what the Democrat city of Philadelphia looks like in 2021.
In the video it shows hundreds of people in the streets walking as if they are zombies due to being under the influence of a drug called tranq dope also known as sleep cut.
Tranq dope is actually heroin cut up with a horse tranquilizer called Xylazine and when snorted or injected it causes one to immediately be sedated.
Just take a look at Philadelphia it looks like this video wasn’t even filmed in America:

According to Forbes 1 of every 3 overdose deaths are linked to tranq dope:
A type of animal tranquilizer, xylazine, is now showing up in almost a third of fatal heroin and fentanyl overdoses in Philadelphia, according to research published today.
The drug, which goes by the street name “tranq”, “tranq dope” or “sleep cut”, has been found in more and more illicit drug supplies across the U.S. over the last five years.
Xylazine is a non-opioid sedative, painkiller, and muscle relaxant that mimics the effects of opioids. It is normally used in veterinary medicine and the FDA has only approved it for animals, but is now being mixed with illegal drugs like fentanyl and heroin to increase the effects of the high.
The drug first became popular in Puerto Rico in the early 2000s where it was described as the “zombie drug” by the media due to its heavy sedating effect.
Xylazine can also dangerously lower blood pressure as well as impair central nervous system activity, breathing and heart rate – all of which can increase the risk of a fatal overdose.
It has been known to cause open skin ulcers when injected due to forms of bacteria and fungus that can be found in the drug that human bodies aren’t great at fighting.
