Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: Emerging Drug 'Tranq' Leading To Amputations

"Sol Prendido" for Borderland Beat


Health officials say Philadelphia is ground zero for a drug that is infiltrating the drug supply in the city.

It is called "Xylazine" or "Tranq" as it is known on the streets.

Officials say drug suppliers are lacing the fentanyl and heroin supply with the animal tranquilizer because it is cheap and easy to get.

The use of "Tranq" also comes with disturbing consequences.

  1. Call me old-school, but I remember when drugs were pure or close to it. All these synthetics they put in drugs nowadays either kill you instantly or make your nuts fall off. Still see videos of the government spraying poppies in the golden triangle. 100,000 + deaths off of synthetics last year. Great job law enforcement and government, you’ve managed to make the “war on drugs” just that much worse ! Now the junkies can shoot fent instead of heroin, how awesome!

  2. It seems that Kensington Philadelphia is ground 0 for all kinds of drugs with its open air drug market but I remember when I was in San Juan PR they also had a problem with animal tranquilizers and this was 10 years ago.

    1. Bingo. This has to be someone from the Island bringing the trans to Philly. I’m from Ponce and they’ve been doing this for at least 20 years there. You see the Tacatos with literal holes in their arms.

    1. LCN is still around, with Joey Merlino supposedly back as their leader. Bikers as well with Pagans and HA being a big power.

    2. Animal tranquilizer PCP was around in the 80s, in select disco joints, but these days it must have steroids and GMOS and get sold everywhere along with condoms and lottery tickets, WHY?
      legalizing grifa or tolerating withput prosecution was supposed to reduce addiction problems and crime because of "all the medicine it contains".

    4. 9:51, PCP, wet, sherm sticks or whatever you want to call it is all over Dallas, Houston, Philadelphia, Baltimore, DC and Los Angelos. It’s about the cheapest drug out there with a cigarette dipped or a joint for a couple dollars more.

  5. 1000s of No Go Zones around America! No wonder millions are fleeing to other countries while the rest cower behind locked doors with their guns locked and loaded!
