EXCLUSIVEGrim photos show 'tranq' addicts shooting up in broad daylight on the sidewalks of Philadelphia where fentanyl and 'tranq' overdoses run rampant

  • Exclusive pictures of Philadelphia's Kensington neighborhood reveal a shocking scene of drug devastation with addicts injecting themselves in broad daylight 
  • More than 90 percent of the heroin now found in Philadelphia contains xylazine, or 'tranq', which was developed in 1962 as an anesthetic for veterinary usage 
  • The drug causes a blackout stupor along with deep, festering wounds that frequently lead to amputations

isturbing photos reveal the city's drugs crisis, with homeless people shooting up in broad daylight over the holidays.

Kensington, 'ground zero' for the city's drug epidemic, is strewn with trash and addicts injecting drugs in the middle of the day.

Kensington, which up until the 1950s was a bustling industrial district, is now described by The Philadelphia Inquirer as 'the poorest neighborhood in America's poorest big city'

Large groups have taken over the sidewalks, turning them into homeless encampments where many people live in their own filth. 

The disaster has been fueled by the rise of the drug Xylazine, known as 'tranq' - a lethal sedative that is used to enhance the effects of heroin, fentanyl and cocaine. 

Philadelphia has become overwhelmed by drug-fueled crime under Democratic District Attorney Larry Krasner, a self-described 'progressive prosecutor.'

His failure to crack down led to his impeachment in 2022 for 'dereliction of duty', however he remains in office after his trial was indefinitely postponed.

The latest evidence is seen in photos and video of Kensington overrun with addicts, garbage and drug paraphernalia. 

Addicts are seen injecting drugs into their legs, their arms and necks in the middle of the sidewalk.

Emaciated homeless people can be seen passed out in the street next to empty bottles and plastic bags.

Homeless people and drug addicts are often driven to petty theft as a way to sustain themselves or scrape enough money together to supply their addictions.

Footage by Dailymail.com back in May revealed the scale of Philadelphia's untamed 'tranq' epidemic, which has transformed the city's streets into a drug-infested hellhole.

Eight months on, images show that little has changed.  

Gruesome scenes in the 'City of Brotherly Love' show droves of homeless addicts aimlessly staggering through the streets, surrounded by tents and scattered trash.

One local activist revealed businesses are using booby traps like sprinkler systems to keep drug addicts away from their storefronts.

'Businesses end up throwing soapy water on the ground just so it is wet, and it is not a comfortable place to sit down,’ said activist Frank Rodriguez. ‘There's businesses that set up sprinkler systems, they have to set up these crazy little hacks and booby traps just to keep people of their stoops.'

The scale of problems caused by xylazine is shocking even to locals who have become accustomed to such distressing scenes

Amid a flood of the popular and dangerous drug, the sidewalks are more reminiscent of a scene from the Walking Dead than a bustling metro.

Users are seen smoking, snorting, injecting, swallowing and inhaling the drug, with some even seen injecting it between the toes in their feet.

The effects of the drug appear very similar to that of an overdose, as victims suffer from an uncontrolled stupor of sedation, slowed breathing and unconsciousness.

Users roam the streets in a trance-like state while on the drug, unaware of their movements and sprawled out on the filthy sidewalks. 

It has taken center stage on the drug market as a powerful cutting agent, and the zombie-like drug is one of the most addictive substances on the black market. 

Philip Moore, chief medical officer for the nonprofit treatment provider Gaudenzia, previously detailed how weaning people off Xylazine is a complicated procedure.

'We'll start treating for opioid withdrawal, and they should be getting better — but we'll see chills, sweating, restlessness, anxiety, agitation,' he said.

'They're very, very unpleasant symptoms. That's what triggers us that we're dealing with a more complicated withdrawal, that there's more xylazine in the mix.'

He said he had prescribed clonidine and lofexidine, both medications for high blood pressure, to get patients through withdrawal, as well as sedatives such as phenobarbital or Valium.

Moore said there needs to be better education for medical practitioners, to enable them to deal with the withdrawal symptoms.

'The challenge is educating other physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, and the community,' he said.

Xylazine also often causes raw, gaping wounds on its victims, many of whom are found suffering from gruesome injuries while they lay among garbage and syringes.

Startling figures also found that tranq had been found in more than 90 percent of fentanyl samples in Philadelphia, and emergency rooms have reportedly seen skin and soft tissue injuries increase four-fold in the last three years.

Philadelphia is not alone in its struggle to contain rampant drug addiction.

In 2022, Philadelphia reported 1,413 overdose deaths, an 11 percent increase from 2021.

National trends indicate the numbers of drug deaths continue to soar, with tranq and fentanyl 'zombies' slumped on streets across America.

In April, Philadelphia’s Opioid Response Unit outlined its plan to address the overdose crisis. 

They announced investments in community-based efforts and a law enforcement partnership to disrupt the drug market. 

But as these depressing photos show - little appears to have changed for the better
