‘Zombies’ spotted in Brazil (VIDEOS)
BRASILIA - A new stimulant, dubbed as ‘Zombie Drug’, has shocked the world with the horrifying videos from Brazil showing how users react to the drug.

Flakka or alpha-pyrrolidinopentiophenone (alpha-PDP) is a drug mostly manufactured in China for roughly $5 per dose. The drug is sold in white or pink crystal chunks, which are “foul-smelling”, according to the US National Institute on Drug Abuse. It is sometimes called “gravel” because it resembles the small stones in the bottom of fish tanks.



While the drug was originally marketed as a legal high alternative to ecstasy, the effects are significantly different.



The user will feel an elevated heart rate, enhanced emotions, and, if enough is digested, strong hallucinations. The drug can cause permanent psychological damage due to it affecting the mood regulating neurons that keep the mind’s serotonin and dopamine in check, as well as possibly causing heart failure.

The drug is now believed to have reached the South American country after a few ‘zombies’ were caught on the street.

In two videos, a woman believed to have taken the drug can be seen lying on her belly at the back of a vehicle. Her eyes were rolled back, and she kept flailing her arms though her lower body remained motionless.

While another ‘zombie’ can be seen charging a large vehicle and hitting his head on the windshield repeatedly, until the windshield cracked. The man continued to do so, and showed no signs of pain.
