Well, this is odd to hear about Greenfield and Western Mass like this. Opioid use has been a thing in Western Mass since the 90s--well, heroin mostly and other opioids as they got cheaper and easier to get. Junkies like to get their high as cheap as possible, because it's not like they've got unlimited funds. And the market is going to keep supplying them with the most cut stuff they can possibly produce.

Let's just be thankful we're not a krokodil levels of cutting agents.

What I learned from that movie:

1) speed makes you lose a bunch of weight
2) gotta test the product to make sure it's legit
3) it won't suck itself

From wikipedia: "Veterinarians also use xylazine as an emetic, especially in cats."

Have these vets met cats?

I'm having a hard time finding sympathy at this point.

I mean, I want to--I'm not an a-hole. But with all the stories of tainted everything and weed or weed analogues (d8/thco) being legal, I just can't.

During my younger, more impulsive years, I absolutely went through a period where I got drugs from randos. Nothing injectable, but I've definitely snorted coke in the back of a VW bus lined with shag carpeting with a guy I'd just met.

I'm pretty grateful that I did so in an era where all this garbage wasn't going on, and I fear for my brother's teenage kids, some of whom, like me back then, have poor impulse control and no fear of death. They're going to go through their young, dumb years at a much scarier time.

Like fentanyl, this sounds like a self-limiting problem. Once all the people dumb enough to snort up some random powder sold to them by a mope on a street corner have OD'd, there's not a customer base left.

Unfortunately, people don't die immediately from injecting/idiocy. They come to the hospital with systemic or heart infections, get enough better to walk, but not be cured, then leave against advice to get more drugs and alcohol.  Then they come back the next week.  Eventually, they die of complecations, or they literally are too sick to physically leave, and they either die, or are cured for now.
Or they come in OD, get treated, wake up, leave against advice, then go out and OD again. Eventually, they die of complecations, or if they OD alone and aren't found.  Gets expensive.  Now, if it were laced with something like 10 times the lethal dose of cyanide, your plan might work.

zombietheclown: Tranquilizer...in cocaine?


I'm as much as a fan as the next person when it comes to keeping your stimulants and depressants in balance (the liver helpfully converts coca & alcohol to cocaethyline. A synergistic peanut butter cup, if you will)

But as I read TFA and adjust my tinfoil hat I wonder again if it's LEO or CIA that's putting heart stopper in street drugs.

Not an original thought, I'm sure, but I wonder.

Not too familiar with how a society works, are you?

There's always a customer base.  Even when your product kills your customers.

Well, first that sounds like it could knock you out just from looking at it.

And second, it also sounds like one of those 'self-correcting' problems.

If drug and alcohol addiction were "self-correcting" problems, they would have self corrected long ago.
If we are willing to live with the problem, we can just accept it - but it's never going to solve itself, because there will always be fresh meat.

A rapper / producer. Bought fake pills from his dealer - they weren't legit pharmies, Which is why unless it's prescribed, you should test it.

Addiction doesn't just happen. It's almost always because someone is self medicating some kind of pain away.

Even with lab rats, they almost never get addicted unless they're living in isolated cages with no other stimulation.

Perhaps it's time to get treatment for your addiction?

It's physically possible for Gay people to get married, Black people can actually fit in the seats at the front of a bus or push a button in a voting booth.   Physicians can safely terminate a pregnancy.   We even survived shutting down much of the world starting in 2022.

Don't expect safe opioid addictions.   The Sackler family promised that and look what happened.
