After police officers from various countries sounded the alarm detect the sending of mysterious substances, investigators follow the trail of packages and reach a family in Granada. The investigative team reflected the case in a 2019 program that laSexta reissued this Friday.
According to researchers, the dangerous cannibal drug is the star product of the Granada family.
From the General Hospital of Valencia, they warn of the increase in cases of poisoning by new synthetic drugs. “When a patient intoxicated by new psychoactive drugs is brought to the centre, he usually comes with very severe psychomotor agitation. It shows violence towards all the uncontrollable environment. If the state is an image of aggressiveness that is difficult to manage, we move them to the containment box where we have a series of mechanical containment straps for containment,” explains Benjamín Climent, head of the clinical toxicology unit.
The state of elation of a person intoxicated by a synthetic drug like the cannibal drug is such that they have to tie him up. “There’s a time when the patient doesn’t know what he’s doing and endangers himself, his loved ones and his staff,” Climent said.
The expert explains that the cannibal drug is composed of substances which, at the level of the brain, produce hyperexcitability which can lead to episodes of aggressionhallucinations, convulsions, epileptic seizures, cerebral hemorrhages, cerebrovascular accidents, tachycardia, hypertension, closing of the arteries and which causes a lack of blood supply and causes physical illnesses.
According to the investigation, the Granada family leads deliveries with these new synthetic drugs in more than 40 countries.
How do you manage to be so successful with the alleged sale of synthetic drugs? Francisco Torres, Captain of the Civil Guard, is clear: “It’s because of the notoriety that precedes them in the forums specialized in these substances. There are forums in which users place them as the world’s number one distributor”.
The business grows so much that the Civil Guard discovers that the Granada family installs a second distribution point in a Valencian town of 20,000 inhabitants, La Pobla de Vallbona.
On the other hand, the research team reflected how Among the catalog of more than 100 substances that placed the family at the center of the investigation was the cannibal drug, LSD or MDMA. You can watch the moment in the video below.
