Duane Johnson is being charged in the death of his wife after methamphetamine “death party”—Brown County Sheriff's Office I think the title speaks for itself on this one.
Thanks, Florida, for yet another insane headline that proves just how bad the drug problem is. The drug crisis, in many ways, has proved that drug users aren’t just the homeless junkie shooting up under a bridge and drug dealers aren’t just the shadowy figures lurking in back alleys. We’ve seen the “all-American“ varsity football star get injured, put on painkillers, and eventually throw all his hopes and dreams away with heroin addiction.
Fentanyl is one drug that I believe will go down in history books forever. It’s not often that a generation sees a substance that drastically and permanently changes the societal landscape around it.
I’m pretty much sick of talking about how the drug problem in this country is getting worse. I hate talking about no matter how much work seems to get done to fight this thing, it feels like we’re spinning our wheels.
In a world full of fentanyl, heroin, meth and all of the other super-strong drugs that enchant you with numbing your pain and making your problems go away, one drug, in particular, seems to fall by the wayside.
Carfentanil, otherwise known as an “elephant tranquilizer,” has been around for a few years and seems to pop up every now and then in different parts of the country. When it was originally found, the public were in shock that actual elephant tranquilizers were being found laced into the drug supply.
Drug dealers come in all shapes and sizes. It’s not just the shady looking guy standing on the corner making weird eye contact with you. It’s not just the guy in the fancy car and gold chains. Nor is it only the guy taking your blood pleasure and treating your illnesses.
Having worked in the behavioral health and drug addiction field for many years, I’ve seen things that would shock a lot of people. However, for me, it’s just another day helping others.
Okay, so now things have completely gotten out of hand and I say that based on the fact that the drug crisis has now traversed the species boundary.
Nearly three years ago, fake Xanax reared its head and caused devastation in multiple areas of the country—especially in Florida.
