STOKE BRACED FOR ZOMBIE CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST New death drug makes users ‘as strong as Incredible Hulk’
IF you’re not keen on the idea of being eaten alive by a zombie with superhuman strength, DON’T go to Stoke- on- Trent.
Because the Potteries city is in the grip of a chilling drug epidemic that has BLOODY HELL: Tramp had face eaten off by drug user “Incredible Hulk” users charging around the streets, lusting for blood and smelling faintly of prawns!
The illegal powder, known as Monkey Dust, can be bought for as little as £ 2 a hit – and can leave users in what horrified cops call a “zombie- like state” and completely impervious to pain.
Emergency services are close to being overwhelmed by the epidemic, with around 10 calls EVERY DAY related to Monkey Dust.
The drugs are available to buy online and it’s feared more people across the country will start taking the addictive powder because it’s being sold at such a low cost.
But for the moment it’s Stoke that’s Ground Zero for the Monkey Dust epidemic.
Local cop PC Rich Frost said: “When you are trying to restrain them, it’s like you are dealing with someone who thinks they are the Incredible Hulk. “The strength is unbelievable.” Chief Superintendent Jeff CHILLING: Stoke’s streets are in the grip of a Monkey Dust epidemic Moore said: “The public may be familiar with users wandering about in a zombie- like state after taking these drugs, but this is something different.
“There are various strains of these drugs and what we are seeing now is people becoming extremely agitated and paranoid. Sometimes they can be violent.
“They’re often trying to get away from things, so they’ll climb up buildings or run into traffic.
“Previously, we’ve been mainly concerned about the risk of overdose and the affect drugs have on users’ health.
“That’s still a concern, but now we’re seeing people at risk of physical injury because of their behaviour.
“And even when they are injured, they can stay in that paranoid state for two or three days, which is putting a significant strain on our resources and that of the ambulance and the hospital.
“It’s also much cheaper than other drugs. While heroin can WRECKS IN THE CITY: Is this the future for the folk of Stoke? cost £ 10, Monkey Dust is being sold for just £ 2 or £ 3.
“We want to raise awareness of this problem. We want people to know this isn’t a fun, social drug – it’s causing serious harm.”
Also known by the sinister monikers ‘ Zombie Dust’ and ‘ Cannibal Dust’, MDPV or MDPHP, it is thought to be the same substance that led to user Rudy Eugene, 31, eating the FACE off tramp Ronald Poppo.
Bizarrely, along with the other effects, the drug also makes users’ sweat smell of prawns or vinegar.
Now public health officials are trying to figure out how to halt the spread of the plague.
One source said: “One option is to set up a cordon sanitaire around Stoke and let nobody in or out until the epidemic has burned itself out.
“But that would involve trapping tens of thousands of people in Stoke with no chance of escape.
“That would be inhuman, even without flesh- eating zombies on the loose.”
