A little off topic from what I usually post and talk about but it was on my mind.
This fentanyl “fad” hitting Vancouver is out of control.
Of the 300 drug overdose deaths that hit Vancouver last year, 25% of them were fentanyl related.
A North Vancouver couple succumbed to the drug and now a two year old is left without a mother and father.
Now a seventeen year old kid from Burnaby by the name of Jack Bodie has died after ingesting the drug at the WC Shelley Park in East Vancouver.
No kid or person would knowingly want to ingest this drug after hearing nothing positive associated with it. It is 50 to 100 times more toxic than morphine. It takes months to withdraw from it. It is cheaper than heroin and oxycodone apparently and more powerful. Hence the lacing and mixing into other drugs.
Therefore when you call up a dealer next time for some 80 mg oxycodone or ecstasy, make sure you are aware of what’s happening. Any asshole with a low value for human life could just lace this into any pill.
Here’s the Province’s article on this horrible trend:
