    NE Ohio isn't even the worst of it. The heart of it seems to cut from Cincinnati at the northwest end, southeast through southern WV.

    Another thing about these opiates in addition to addiction and OD-ing is that they fuck your liver. If I recall correctly, vicodin for example is an acetaminophen pill coated with opiate at the outer layer. Acetaminophen wrecks your liver.

    The synthetic opiods are outdoing the poppy derived drugs. (Fentanol?) Some of the Fentanol is so concentrated that it can be a danger to first responders (Police-EMS-Fire)

    Damn, that’s some powerful shit! If it can mess up the first responders, imagine what that will do to the guy using it...

    From wikipedia

    In June, 2016 the Royal Canadian Mounted Police seized one kilogram of carfentanil shipped from China in a box labelled "printer accessories". According to the Canada Border Services Agency, the shipment contained 50 million lethal doses of the drug, more than enough to wipe out the entire population of the country

    From what I have heard from local news reports, some local police officers just about overdosed accidently from just coming in to skin contact with fentanil.

    It’s the same stuff the Russians used in the Moscow theater hostage incident, ended up killing a lot of hostages, mostly because the responders didn’t know what happened and didn’t have respiration gear and enough naloxone.

    Compared to a Vicodin, it’s like comparing goldfish to great sharks.
