Timezones are in Pacific. To see the event handily converted to your timezone, click through to the Google+ event

A new drug has hit the streets of Bellingham, WA called BM38, a potent injectable liquid that seems a lot like PCP in some ways, and a lot like heroin in others. It can cause intense feelings of euphoria along with increased strength, heightened perception, and more and more recently, violent tendencies. 

It's thought to be supernatural in nature, threatening to cast a pall on the ongoing public 'outing' of supernatural creatures, not to mention it has the potential to unravel the civilized world as a whole. Where'd it come from? Who's behind it? How do you stop it? Find out!
