Fentanyl is killing our loved ones faster than ever.
Every week I hear about someone else who died from the disease of addiction. People are saying that Fentanyl is a component in the rising death rates. Fentanyl is an opioid 50 times more potent than morphine. The street form is usually built in home laboratories and commonly found in heroin to increase the effects- unknown to the users.
Think about the effect this is having on heroin users who are unaware their substances is lace with a potent opioid. It only takes 2 mg of fentanyl to make a bag of heroin, deadly. I highly doubt the people mixing baby powder, laxatives, and fentanyl into their Heroin are really aware of how many mg are evenly distributed into each bag. Your life is literally betting on a bag that has just the right amount to not kill you.
We are seeing dramatic increases in overdose since the pill mills were shut down and a rise in drugs that are more deadly than ever. Relapsing ends in a funeral more times than not and no one seems to have a solution.
