People need to know that the supply of Heroin is cut with Fentanyl, and it is deadly.
Not sure why(bullzhit) the mainscream media is not on this, but peeps need to be told.

I love sites that vomit when you have javascript turned off.

Good god I found that confusing, are there two people, the dead one and the juror who was revived?

Also I loved the scrolling news ticker, they must long for the days of the old BLINK tag.

I have no idea. whoever wrote that needs to be fired.
and yeah this is why the black market stuff needs to go away.
people will always find something to self medicate with.
might as well provide them with something non fatal and maybe make some tax revenue in the offing.
take that money and open up educational and rehab facilities with it.

Would something like that call for a mistrial?

Aw, come on now.  You're watching Jeopardy and  promo/tease for the 11 o'clock news comes on.  "Your smack could be deadly!  What you need to know.  The story at 11!"

People don't need to know this.  Heroin users need to know this.

Did that judge say "Dude, ..."?

Pro tip: With that juror questionaire, always put down you can't do jury duty on M-F from 8am - 6pm because your heroin dealer only works normal business hours, except for staying open two hours longer on Thursday night.

Healthcare Providers need to know it, too, because even though Fentanyl in proper doses lasts approximately 30 minutes and is a rather hemodynamically stable drug, they cut this heroin by taking the 100mcg/hr and 200mcg/hr Durgesic Patches, cutting them open, and dumping 12x that dose into each being cut. So depending on, you can get 1.2mg or 2.4mg of Fentanyl. Fentanyl binds heavily with fat, and can take MULTIPLE administrations of narcan, or even require a narcan drip over the next 24 hours to treat that.

I wish that I had that in my bag the day I stumbled upon an overdose. I guess I should be grateful that I don't have a kid with a drug problem.

And as a "recovered" heroin addict, the mainstream people need to understand telling addict about a stamp/brand name that kills people only drives up sales. There was a kind called RedRum in Newark back in the late 90's that was killing people. Every addict I met around that time asked where it could be found.

And in drug court years later, I'd see people "nodding off" but I've never seen a OD in court..

Thanks for your opinion.
Now go get an education and become part of the solution instead of the problem, if you truly care.

I've honestly moved away from that for suspected intentional/accidental heroin overdoses, and so have many of the hospitals. There are some nasty complications that can happen if you're too aggressive giving it IV, but giving it through a nasal wedge is a very safe way to keep their respiratory drive up until an ambulance gets there.

Many places are now just going ahead and intubating them and letting them sleep it off on the ventilator.

As a side note, having some asshole "slam" (read: Give incredibly rapidly through a large IV) Narcan is like someone coming into your bedroom and waking you up by taking a sledge hammer to your balls.

The publishers of the Junkies Weekly has thus far been unwilling to release his distribution list.
snocone's point is valid, medical personnel and others who may have involvement with users (i.e. their parents, friends) should also be aware of this.

Amsterdam finally woke up to this reality, and now a large percentage of users are back in the workforce instead of living on the street.  Clean drugs and clean needles eliminate a LOT of problems down the line.

I use NoScript with all sites defaulted to no permission.

It caught the <NOSCRIPT> redirection, and just flagged it in a banner.  The article showed up and was readable.

/some sites though are real PITAs, I just say fark it, and read it in lynx, or ^U and read it in the the HTML source

Yessir it turns out taking a common sense approach actually had positive results. Go figure.

Switzerland too.  It's changing some minds from punitive punishment to harm reduction strategies. The Economist had an interesting article on it a month or two ago.  Now if we could only get DEA on board, and turn their cops into counsellors.   (And monkeys will fly out of my butt.  But I can hope.)

The DEA/FBI are probably the ones adulterating the heroin with the fentanyl. puposely to try and "scare" addicts away. Like they did with alcohol during prohibition. http://www.slate.com/articles/health_and_science/medical_examiner/201 0 /02/the_chemists_war.html
