Fentanyl-laced Cocaine Driving Overdoses in Ohio
You know things are bad when even HighTimes.com is concerned about the rise of fentanyl-laced cocaine in Ohio. In fact, officials estimate that 1 in 4 Ohio overdoses are now caused by using heroin or cocaine that has been cut with fentanyl.
Lamenting that the days of “safe” cocaine use were being ruined, High Times writes “We knew it was just a matter of time before the shifty black market practices that have now made the consumption of opioids even more dangerous than kissing venomous snakes would infiltrate the cocaine trade and ruin what was once a good time for those of us with a need for speed.”
“When it comes to fentanyl, this is not a drug that should be handled by the amateur street pharmacist. For starters, it can be up to 100 times more potent than morphine. Even touching a small amount of this stuff can bring on the reaper. What’s more is the way the drug works on the human body. Just like other opioids, it attaches itself to the same receptors in the brain that control breathing, making it so easy to snuff out the unsuspecting user.”
