Philadelphia drug case – Cops start the investigation

Police responded in the Philadelphia drug case to Crossroads Accelerated Academy along the 4300 block of Westminster Avenue at 11:40 a.m. after multiple students between the ages of 14 and 16 suddenly became sick. “According to a preliminary investigation, two students brought in grape juice laced with ‘wonk,’” Philadelphia School District spokesperson Monique Braxton said. “Wonk is an opioid substance.”

Cops confirm that at least 12 students drank the juice and laced with the opioid and were experiencing light-headedness and vomiting. As per the news, a few of the students were in critical condition and were admitted to the nearby hospital for treatment in the Philadelphia drug case. The rest of the students were sent home with their parents for further care. “They responded to the scene to do a preliminary testing on the substance and they determined they needed further testing so the substance will have to go to a lab,” Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Kpana Massaquoi said.

The school was placed on lockdown at 12:16 p.m. and police brought in trained officers with the counterterrorism unit to help with the investigation.

In the context of the Philadelphia drug case, researchers confirm that the cause of poisoning deaths for children aged 5 years or less, 50% of them are attributed to opioids. Researchers analyzed data from 40 states on the fatalities of young children between 2005 and 2018 in which the cause of death was identified as a “poisoning, overdose or acute intoxication.” The study, published in the journal Pediatrics on Wednesday, was conducted by researchers at The Poison Control Center at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia in Pennsylvania.
