A disturbing look at the recent K2 overdoses.

Earlier this week Brooklyn's troublesome K2 epidemic reached a peak when 33 users in the same neighborhood had to be transported to the hospital in a wave of overdoses.

Bodies were literally laying all over the street like a scene straight out of The Walking Dead and the K2 users who weren't laid out on the pavement were either harassing people in the street or struggling just to stay upright.

In light of the massive K2 overdoses this week, police have raided five Brooklyn bodegas but didn't find any of the synthetic chemical drug, which can be sold for as little as $1 a cigarette.

The drug, which effects the same part of the brain as weed, contains chemicals that are sometimes produced in labs in China and sprayed on dried leaves which users then smoke, causing extreme anxiety, paranoia, hallucinations and confusion.

One particular man who used the drug penned a letter in the NY Post apologizing for his actions while on K2, which can be seen in the following video.

“I was choking,” Jones said, when asked why he targeted the group. “I ran out to get help, my throat was swelling up and I couldn’t breathe.”

“My f—ing throat, my f—ing throat is on fire!” he shouted, according to witnesses.

“Get it out, get it out!”

“I would definitely apologize to them,” he said, when asked what he would tell the family if he ever saw them again.

“Their first impression of New York is me running into them. I hope I’m not the reason the city gets its reputation in foreign countries.”
