BTW, the drug speculation is t just coming out of thin air.

 

 

It would be wildly irresponsible (but not impossible) for the Baltimore PD to make that type of statement unless they were pretty damn certain this is going to end up being OD related.

Remember what I said about street acquired prescription drugs?

I rather doubt it was fentanyl laced Xanax. Xanax is plenty dangerous enough on it's own, especially if you are mixing it with booze.

You're not wrong in principle but fentanyl is a real game changer in the likelihood of overdose. Yeah, addiction and drug abuse has always been a problem but then you throw in an extremely deadly synthetic opioid into the mix and it's gasoline on a fire.

And yeah, it's definitely a weird tangent but it wouldn't be a Huddle thread without a weird tangent. 😂

Yeah, I am not here saying fentanyl isn't an issue but we just find some new boogeyman of a drug every few years/decades, so it will be something else eventually. 

The issue has very rarely been the substances. It's the people and systems that revolve around the substances. That's why this doesn't change, no matter the century.

People may not know if the the street medications they purchase contain fentanyl, which is cheaper and more potent than other drugs, because the pills are made to look exactly like prescription medications such as Xanax, oxycodone, Percocet, Norco, and others.

Carroll County is just outside of the Baltimore beltway.

It's possible but getting prescription Xanax is very far from difficult.
