Designer Drugs, The Zombie Apocalypse and You

Rusty Shackleford from Modern Mythology brings us a different take on the zombie and bath salts business:

Some of you may remember a piece written by myself, no less than a half a year ago, on the potential of chemicals included in head shop designer drugs to chemically lobotomize the user and to effectively dissociate the hind brain from the frontal portions of the brain. The drug would then essentially paralyze the frontal portions of the brain, leaving a human being concerned with only the most rudimentary functions of the limbic brain: fucking, eating, and killing.

Welcome to 2012: The only difference is that at the time, we postulated that such an effect could be achieved through chemicals sprayed upon “spice” packets sold in headshops containing active agent JWH-018 which is, in and of itself, a fairly unknown quantity. Since then, I have watched with a growing interest as report after report published on the internet, major news networks, blogs and newspaper articles have hit with new details on “zombie cannibalism attacks” generated by “abuse of bath salts, superacid, etc” depending upon whom you ask. Enter “Kapin Trips” ™.

The substance in question: The following excerpt is from an anonymous tip off I received via the e-mail from a former organic chemist working for a company that I will not name. Suffice to say, he made me very certain of his credentials, and that the company in charge of this operation has its hand in a lot more than just legal recreational drugs: It goes deeper than you could ever imagine, and it is completely horrifying.

He wrote to me after having read my piece on the use of over the counter or legal head shop drugs in creating armies of drone assassins. He asked me how I knew, and how I had discovered this on my own without any apparent insider knowledge of any of these events transpiring. The following is an excerpt of our communication via e-mail, verbatim except where omissions of titles and names were necessary for anonymity’s sake.

    I cry bullshit. The toxicology reports for the guy in Florida have yet to be released and it is quite possible that he was on PCP or some other substance. Also, it sounds like he had a history of mental illness to begin with. All of this needs to be taken into account. This is nothing more than mindless fear-mongering…

  4. Original article is gone?

    The zombie craze seemed to start with an attack in Miami, when Rudy Eugene, was killed by cops while in the process of eating almost the entirety of a homeless man’s face off. The victim, Ronald Poppo, miraculously survived, but doctors are having a hard time figuring out how to put his face back together.

    It’s not time to panic. Yet??? Or I guess it is.

    Save the world from a zombie cannibal apocalypse. Learn how at:

    I’ve long suspected that the government is behind the whole “legal high” scene. I really don’t think there’s any nefarious intent though, aside from the desire to make staggering profits off sketchy gray-market chemicals that might turn out to have serious health repercussions. The vast majority of the legal high chemicals were invented years ago for medical purposes.

    The existence of that scene is the reason why I suspect we’ll be looking at some sort of large scale semi-legalization of marijuana in the near future. My theory is that the current gray market scene exists as a testing ground to gauge the societal repercussions of a libertarian drug policy.

    Also, the author is way off about the “chemical lobotomy” theory. In fact, what he’s describing is exactly how “antipsychotic” medications work. The class of drugs was even touted by the medical establishment as a miracle “chemical lobotomy”, until the growing stigma behind lobotomy led them to change the name.

      Thank you. Tyme we awaken to the atrocytyes commytted by the mayn-stream psychyatryc yndustry as well as these false substances vycaryous for natural-yllegal herbs.

         Nation-wide marijuana “legalization” will never happen until Big Pharma locks up the patents on synthetic marijuana.
         In other words, the usual fascistic corporate anti-free market monopoly.  You will pay a government licensed doctor for a DEA-approved prescription of an FDA-approved chemical manufactured by an incorporated (licensed) business organization.
        State and Federal courts will still imprison anyone who possesses plants that grow out of the ground like hemp, coca leaves, and poppy sap.

    Curcio is trolling. Modern Mythology’s writing generally tends to deconstruct myths, but I think this time around they’re working on building one.

    • You can believe me or not but I am not Rusty Shackleford / Bradley The Buyer. I didn’t write this article. Nor do I write everything on Modern Mythology. 

      My personal take? I wouldn’t be surprised if there was some pharmaceutical company back-door dealing going on here. Maybe even some agenda for chaos. But I think the zombie angle is mostly a joke.

     Zombie apocalypse seems to me that there has been one going on for quite sometime. They might not  eat flesh but they certainly are mindless. We are all test subjects with the amount of chemicals in our food, water and the air we breathe.Not to mention none chemical forms TV, Facebook, etc…. So those who knowingly ingest synthetic drugs are just another test group.  Mindless zombies how else can a person explain the lack of action let alone a reaction to the state of our world. 

  9. Got to research the toxicology. ive tried “synthetic pot” and its a totally different feeling, closer to what pain killer pills do, than the unique high real pot gives you. If it were less expensive than pot from trusted vendors I would smoke more of it for when I am in pain from sports and such. But it was def not as recreational as Pot. I was more sensitive to light on it, but not psychosis to report and no munchies. But felt artificial and I don’t know about the long term toxicology. But there are drugs that can make a person lose control

      By Mayo Clinic staffBorderline personality disorder affects how you feel about yourself, how you relate to others and how you behave.
      When you have borderline personality disorder, you often have an insecure sense of who you are. That is, your self-image or sense of self often rapidly changes. You may view yourself as evil or bad, and sometimes may feel as if you don’t exist at all. An unstable self-image often leads to frequent changes in jobs, friendships, goals and values.
      Your relationships are usually in turmoil. You often experience a love-hate relationship with others. You may idealize someone one moment and then abruptly and dramatically shift to fury and hate over perceived slights or even minor misunderstandings. This is because people with the disorder often have difficulty accepting gray areas — things seem to be either black or white.
      Borderline personality disorder symptoms may include:
      Impulsive and risky behavior, such as risky driving, unsafe sex, gambling sprees or illegal drug useStrong emotions that wax and wane frequentlyIntense but short episodes of anxiety or depressionInappropriate anger, sometimes escalating into physical confrontationsDifficulty controlling emotions or impulsesSuicidal behaviorFear of being alone
      When to see a doctorPeople with borderline personality disorder often feel misunderstood, alone, empty and hopeless. They’re typically full of self-hate and self-loathing. They may be fully aware that their behavior is destructive, but feel unable to change it. Poor impulse control may lead to problems with gambling, driving or even the law. They may find that many areas of their lives are affected, including social relationships, work or school.
      If you notice these things about yourself, talk to your doctor or a mental health provider. The right treatment can help you feel better about yourself and help you live a more stable, rewarding life.
      If you notice these things in a family member or friend, talk to him or her about seeing a doctor or mental health provider. But keep in mind that you can’t force someone to seek help. If the relationship is causing you significant stress, you may find it helpful to see a therapist yourself.

    The recent zombie news meme is a promotional campaign for Brad Pitt’s new movie World War Z.

  13. I am very afraid to extrapolate these events into the future, s*** could go sour real bad real fast. And for what?!? an extra buck? or more control… whatever!

    be prepared!
