This Common Pain Med Has Killed 10 People In The Last 12 Days

10012347_sEver heard of fentanyl? Most people have. It is a prescription pain drug that contains synthetic opiates, that is more powerful than morphine. It has been used to treat patients with severe pain, and typically is given by pill, injection of patch.

Right now, fentanyl is having its day in the media, as recently, California state health officials has officially linked fentanyl usage to 10 deaths and 42 overdoses in the city of Sacramento in a very short amount of time – just 12 days.

Sadly, California is hardly the first to report such “outbreaks”. Over the last few years, several other major cities throughout the country have also had similar occurrences. Because of this, the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) issued a nationwide alert in 2015 warning the public against fentanyl.

According to a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), deaths related to overdose from synthetic opioids such as fentanyl increased by 80% from 2013-2014, and over 5,500 people died from overdoses of these drugs in 2014.

This particular recent outbreak in California has been traced to counterfeit hydrocodone pills that contained fentanyl, according to the Sacramento County Dept of Health and Human Services. In other cities, fentanyl has been illegally produced in labs and even mixed in with heroin, or used instead of heroin in powder form.

This drug goes by many different street names, which include: dance fever, friend, goodfella, Tango, China Girl, and Cash.

Fentanyl binds to your body’s opiate receptors, similarly to morphine, heroin and other opioids. Typically, these are highly concentrated in the area of your brain that is responsible for feeling pain and emotions. When this drug works, it increases dopamine levels, putting the user in a euphoric and relaxed state.

Also similarly to the other drugs, fentanyl can be deadly when too large of a dose is taken. It is an extremely potent drug, possibly the most powerful opioid drug that is currently available for use today. In fact, it is up to 50 times more powerful than heroin, and up to 100 times more powerful than morphine.

As you can probably guess, fentanyl’s potency is greatly increased when mixed with street drugs that contain heroin and cocaine. The cocktails in these drugs may produce dangerous side effects such as nausea, constipation, sedation, unconsciousness, respiratory issues, euphoria and even coma.

Fentanyl overdoses need to be immediately countered using medications called “opiate receptor antagonists” such as Naloxone which are able to counteract the effects of the opiate drugs.

The DEA believes that fentanyl is being brought into the US via drug smuggling from China. If you have any medication containing fentanyl you will want to be vigilant and careful about not accidentally overdosing, or the results could be devastating.

          Oh, well then all the big, bad white people just need to stop dealing drugs to all the poor, opressed black people and voilà! America will be great again. That might work for Donald Trump. He has already made his fortune. But what will YOU, yourself living abroad but still in the midst of so many black communities decimated by you drug pusher types, do when YOU no longer have a day job?

          Ohhhhh, I get it. You want an excuse to illegally emmigrate to the U.S. so you can get a welfare check and free health care. There’s just one major problem with your plan: your color. It’s like this. Whitey won’t want you and neither will the Brothas or the Latinos.

          Your future does not look promising. You’re fucked no matter what you do. Seems the best you can hope for is an overcrowded, leaky boat that’s gonna put you on the bottom of the ocean. At least you’ll finally be out of your mysery.

            You know, now that I’ve had a little time to think about it, you know who you remind me of? It’s actually kind of a 50/50 answer.

            You see, back when little Plays with His Willie Clinton was running for office, he wanted everybody to know that he was a true bitch in every sense of the word about being tough on crime. So, he hopped on a plane and flew off to some prison to watch a severely retaded man with an IQ all of about 43 be executed.

            But here’s where the 50/50 part comes in. Between Wet Willie and the prisoner, one was born to be of low intellect and the other one just made a career of it. I’m really at a loss to figure out which one you more closely resemble. Guess maybe I’ll just have to flip a coin.

          • The Redman
            April 20, 2016 at 1:57 am

            Yep. U R “flipped”, and have been flipped, and when U hear some 1 sat ready, U flip out. hahahahahahahah

            April 20, 2016 at 2:40 am

            I flipped that coin I was telling you about. It came up as heads I win, tails you lose. Guess that means you’re just bright enough to play a game called take a nap.

            Ohhhh, don’t worry. It won’t hurt you. It’s a really fun game. And after you finish the game, you can finish the dessert you saved from your last meal. I promise.

            Ok, let’s take your idea and run with it. If I’m heads, the only thing that leaves for you to be is the ass end.

      What ruined America is africans turning every major city into a ghetto and committing violent crimes against not only themselves but now White people since that affirmative action fool got into the White House. Time to ship you all back to the jungle, you aren’t capable of becoming civilized. When God created the world he separated the races for a reason, we were never meant to coexist with jungle people.

      If it wasn’t for the White man the majority of africans would still be living in mud huts, you ungrateful bastards.
