Rainbow fentanyl?

Uhh, yeah.. No.

Dear subby,
Trix are for kids.. If you want a rainbow lollipop, try band camp.

Fun fact! The counterfeit pills aren't rainbow colored to appeal to children, they are colored to mimic non fentanyl opiod prescriptions like oxycotin and hydrocodone. They are stamped in the same shape and light pastels as the scrip drugs they are emulating.

Someone does not need to be a willful participant to be affected by fentanyl. The drug is so toxic that just being within close proximity can be deadly.

"What happened to him?"
"Oh, he was in the same room with a fentanyl pill.  F*cker got him from across the room."
"Shame."

🙄 🙄 🙄

But that's not going to spark the outrage news outlet need to make their viewers watch while simultaneously crapping their pants nor allow LEOs to request more resources.  It doesn't even make sense that drug dealers are going to waste money to go out of their way to kill kids.

Add this to the media's long history of over-hyping drugs.  Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to Bed, Bath, and Beyond to buy some bath salts, smoke them, and then bite someone's face off.

So the article's source is one pediatrician who definitely knows it's happening for sure, and the cops who say they have no evidence of it happening but just be careful in case it does.

DEA is all about finding ways to justify their existence, so they come up with ever more wild scenarios year after year.

So it shouldn't be surprising that they have become completely divorced from reality.  Especially with all of the sweet amounts of cash they got under assholes like TFG.

Law enforcement, doctors and parents are all facing a new challenge this Halloween season - rainbow fentanyl

"We need a new scare tactic to get parents all upset. I want something big! As big as the rainbow parties urban legend. What've you got?

"Well, Halloween is coming up, 'Beware of edibles in your kids' candy is always classic.'"

"No, too lame. What the hip new drug, Jenkem?"

"No, Fentanyl. It's so deadly if cops even look at it funny during a drug search it'll cause them to pass out."

"Wait, I've got it!"

Thing is, they're not out of touch. They're just doing what they can to keep the "DRUGS ARE SCARY!" thing going so they can continue the "war" on drugs.

Very few people are seeking such a strong drug. The risk is it's being put into other stuff without warning. Not just other opioids, but damn near anything.

No kids are getting free drugs on Halloween, but you can't trust any black market drugs weren't doped with a dangerous level of the stuff.  They have tester strips, for what that's worth

It annoys me when places say something is marketed towards kids because it has bright colors, mascots, fun music, whatever.
Because you know who else likes that stuff?
Everybody else.
It's like saying car dealers are targeting kids because they make their cars colorful and look fun to drive.

Drugs are expensive, so no one is giving them out for free.
