The NYPD is scheduled to host a press conference regarding the K2 seizure at 3 p.m.
"K2 is a dangerous, deadly drug, but this strain is especially threatening," NYPD Chief of Department Terence Monahan said in a statement.
'There's at least six of them in front of my house right now. Two of them are lying on the street, the rest are zombies.'
Seven people who "seemed to be under the influence of something" outside Penn Station were rushed to the hospital Friday night, according to an FDNY spokesperson.
A newly-released medical study has found that the specific variety of K2 sold near on the Bed-Stuy/Bushwick border this summer was crudely mixed and dangerously potent.
That's close to the total number of overdoses last month.
Everything you ever wanted to know about K2, and more.
"The government should legalize the weed, so people won't smoke the K2."
All 33 individuals are expected to survive.
They were all hospitalized in serious condition.
The hospital's been cited for six violations, and is now facing a wrongful death lawsuit.
According to the Mayor's office K2-related hospitalizations have decreased 85% since July 2015.
