Framingham hit by wave of overdoses
The footprints that fentanyl-laced heroin leaves behind are easy to see on the map, marking a grim cluster of overdose and death.
Authorities in Framingham, Mass. are looking at such a map this week as a bad batch of heroin makes it way through the area.
As reported by MetroWest Daily News, Police are warning about a batch of bad heroin on local streets that has led to at least four overdoses and one death on Tuesday.
“All heroin is bad, but this batch seems to have something worse in it,” said police spokeswoman Lt. Patricia Grigas.
Drug users may not care or worry about the suspected bad batch of heroin, but it is important for the public to know.
“If there’s a bad batch out there, we have to tell people,” said Grigas. “If you have a loved one who is addicted and has problems, there’s a potentially higher risk right now. We’re not turning a blind eye to it. Yes, it’s illegal, but there are addiction problems, and people are going to continue to use drugs.”
