The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said that the Zombie apocalypse is fictional and not going to happen. Meanwhile Miami attack (video) was caused by bath salts drug.
Zombie apocalypse has become an important talking point across the US. For the last fortnight it has kept people guessing as to whether it is a reality or not or what will be the people of implication if it really becomes a reality. Notwithstanding the fact that most of the people know it is just fictional and has nothing to do with reality, but so much talk of it has people confused.
Meanwhile, with the increased rumors about zombie apocalypse even the government has been forced to clear the air. Taking a step to quash rumors, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention finally stepped in to clear the air about zombie apocalypse. In a report it has said that there is not going to be zombie apocalypse.
The zombie apocalypse has come into focus thanks to several incidents including the one when a man stripped naked and chewed off the face of the victim. The incident sent shockwaves across the US.
In the meantime, following several other similar incidents there is the talk of banning bath salts drug that is easily available across the US in drug stores. Reports suggest that the attacker who severely injured Ronald Poppo, and chewed off his face was under the influence of bath salt drug.
There is an increased level of concern among government agencies about the adverse health impact of such dangerous drugs being easily available across the US. A report by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in a lengthy report suggests several remedial measures. The report says, “Drug overdose, including from designer drugs, continues to grow as a public health concern. Multistate investigations have been conducted as a result of exposure to nonpharmaceutical fentanyl (3), levamisole-contaminated cocaine (4), and opiates (5,6). Classes of designer drugs like “bath salts” are intended to have pharmacologic effects similar to controlled substances but to be chemically distinct from them, thus avoiding legal control.
U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report names the drug among the very dangerous substances that are affecting many people. It further says, “”Bath salts” for recreational use are sold at “head shops” and on the Internet with names such as Zoom and White Rush. These products also have been labeled as “plant food” and “pond water cleaner” and sold in ways to circumvent detection or enforcement. Some products are labeled as “novelty collector’s items,” despite additional, pharmaceutical-like labels that indicate dosage. Before “bath salts,” synthetic marijuana (e.g., K2 or Spice) was sold legally in convenience stores and gas stations as “incense”.” With so many incidents coming to the fore there is immediate need to revisit the policy of allowing such drugs in market.
