By Black Radio Network Staff

                BROOKLYN, NY – Alarmed that 33 people were severally sickened by an overdose of the synthetic marijuana known as K2, law enforcement  have fanned out in minority sections of Brooklyn, NY to locate the sources of the drugs.

                The raids are being carried out mostly in bodegas where it is believed K2 is available.

                Authorities said the victims of K2 act like zombies, similar to the show “The Walking Dead.”

                The production and sale of K2 was outlawed in New York on October 20, 2015.
