OD on fentanyl and die or get the Rona and suffer for a month and possibly die.

Please stop lacing drugs with a substance that can kill your customer easily if that dose is wrong.

Killing your customers won't lead to repeat business.

That might be someone's goal.

======================================​========================

Yeah, this has befuddled me for a long time.

There's absolutely no way a drug dealer would knowingly kill their customer.  They want repeat business.  Like any drug company (legal or not), they want you hooked and paying them, not dead.

I feel like there's something we're missing.  Perhaps some very sinister supplier (conservatives have been getting more and more overt in their hatred of drug users and how they think they're all scum) sneaking their fentanyl-laced drugs into the market, essentially mass-murdering thousands.  Or even the government doing it as a way to 'fix' the drug problem in the country, just kill 'em all until they're all dead or too afraid to use anymore.

Something like that.

No normal supplier wants to kill their clients.

never heard of cutting coke with Fentanyl, aren't those kind of opposites?

Drug dealers don't care about their poor customers dying. Like most capitalists, they would rather sell a rock for $100 than $10.

Drug prices don't work like other commodities. They sell for what the customer can pay, sort of like bidding. The real money is in the suburbs, with middle class addicts. The income customers are a side shuttle and it makes sense they would suffer when the dealers want to reduce the cost of making and selling the product to them by cutting it with a cheaper replacement.

Since there are always far more people turning poor than rich, when they die it really is not a big deal for the dealers.

A speedball involves cocaine and an opiate, so it does exist.  Just one more danger posed by prescriptions from your streetcorner pharmacist, I suppose.

May I ask a question?

Why on earth is getting Fentanyl cheaper then the street drugs?

You would think with it's potency, it would be more expensive or like an option when you buy a car...


"this powder comes with Fentanyl! Now how much would you pay?"

well it might be more expensive by weight but you only need 1/100 of it.  That's why  they were mixing it into heroin.

Step outside?  WHAM fentanyl overdose!

Back when I went to parties, the big concern was your pill was dextromethorphan rather than molly.  Instead of dancing & making our with floozies all night, you spent your evening on the floor mumbling to yourself.

Yeah, I think they're mixing a dash of heroin, a pinch of fentanyl, and a half-cup of baking soda and passing it off as pure heroin. But if you get too large of that pinch of fentanyl you kill everyone who uses it.

If the street-level guy is adding it, that's insane.  If the distributor is adding it, every dealer I've ever bought coke from would be dead is his apartment before ever being able to sell any.

Yup, all this. Fentanyl is also much cheaper to make than heroin, and much easier to transport. It cuts down costs all throughout the production and supply chain.

Csb:
The fentanyl addict I met a while back had a great excuse for not getting treatment. She said CT doesn't test for fentanyl addiction, so the nurses told her to find and take some opiates as a way to be accepted into rehab. Pointing out how ridiculous that sounds didn't go over well. She spent hours crying over not having custody for her children, which is why rehab was brought up. It sucks, but some junkies just want to junkie.

What did anyone expect to happen when every cash strapped drug user in the country got a "free" check for $1,200? Did you think they were going to spend it at Whole Foods or Trader Joe's?
