The Washington Post- A substance used to tranquilize elephants that is 100 times more potent than the drug that killed Prince is hitting the Washington suburbs, adding the region to a growing list of communities nationwide reporting fatal overdoses linked to the exotic and toxic sedative. Three cases out of Anne Arundel and Frederick counties this month mark the first carfentanil-related fatalities in Maryland, alarming local health and law enforcement officials already in a state of emergency combating the opioid crisis. On Monday, a Virginia man pleaded guilty in a drug distribution case after selling $100 of carfentanil-laced heroin to a 21-year-old found dead by her mother on the bathroom floor of their Fairfax County home. In recent weeks, police departments across the country announced carfentanil-related fatalities, including cases in Illinois, Colorado, Wisconsin and Minnesota. Law enforcement officials fear the growing lethal overdoses tied to the synthetic opioid marks a new normal in the nation’s heroin epidemic. “We have never seen death like we do now,” said Tom Synan, head of Hamilton County Heroin Coalition in Ohio, which was among the first spots to discover a string of carfentanil deaths during a week in which the county’s overdoses more than doubled.
Gotta love the the opiate options out there these days. You think parents back then were screaming for arrest and trying to protect their kids from the crazy devil rap music talking about smoking weed, well buck up, Mothers out there. Weed is going to be legal soon enough nationwide and you gotta now protect your kids from using elephant tranquilizer used to sedate a 3 ton animal behemoth. I gotta say, there’s some level of amazement out there. I mean when we live in a world where people take Oxycontin, Cocaine, Crack, LSD, Ketamine, Vicodin, Morphine, Methadone, Heroin, Percocets, MDMA, Crystal meth, GHB, Psilocybin mushrooms, Salvia, DMT, PCP, Barbiturates, Xanax, Valium, Rohypnol, Synthetic weed, Alcohol, and Weed in general, druggies will always find another way to get high. Case and point, someone thought all of these very well known party drugs, downers, and uppers, thought it would be a good idea to take a syringe full of Carfentanil used to tranq elephants and rhinos and decided to use it to get fucked up. Put nothing past drug addicts and their method of getting high. Wouldn’t even be surprised if they straight up told a zoo keeper to shoot em straight in the jugular.
Metro- Bubba, a chirpy seven-month-old terrier mix, has now found a new family after spending four months recovering in Orange County Animal Care.He had been found festering in a hotel room in Tustin, California and when rescuers first saw him, he was huddled in a corner, listless, and close to death. ‘I walked in and saw all these drugs on the ground,’ Lt Brian Frick, a supervising animal control officer, told the OC Register. ‘I said, “where’s the dog?” and walked around the corner and saw him lying listless. He was so cold and lethargic, I thought it was just he’d been taken from his mom too soon. I never suspected he may have gotten into drugs.’His 40-year-old owner Joshua West was arrested on an outstanding warrant, as well as for possession of methamphetamine, heroin and drug paraphernalia.Meanwhile, when vets ran medical tests on Bubba they found he tested positive for methamphetamine and heroin. It is unclear whether the dog ingested the drugs or inhaled the fumes. Since then he has been treated with a regular diet of fluids and healthy food. And finally, last week, his tests came back clear for the first time.An anonymous couple were quick to adopt little Bubba, who is now drug-free and full of life. Katie Ingram, assistant director of OC Animal Care, said: ‘They were a really nice couple and told us that Bubba would have a sister. Bubba bonded with them immediately.’ Now the pup is enjoying his new home with a loving family.
Really proud of Bubba here. Proud of anyone who gets the help they need to make themselves a better person. I’ve watched Intervention so many times and seen all those people fuck up while their doing their stint in rehab and most of the time I think they send em to pretty much a 7 star hotel. Passages Malibu looks like a great time where you don’t need to get high but that’s just how crazy Heroin and Meth is, they get you by the soul. And the thing is most of the time I could care less about people who get peer pressured in because you can still say no. But Bubba the dog here is man’s best friend so he has no choice but to do meth with his drug addled owner. Shame on Josh West. When that guy gets out of prison he better not get another dog. Like taking an animal so sweet and corrupting it with crystal meth and shit should be like a mortal sin. This will sound nerdy as fuck but its like in Harry Potter when they say killing a unicorn for its blood will give you a cursed half life? Well if you get a happy puppy hooked on intravenous drugs, you should just rot in prison.
The only thing good to come from Albuquerque is Breaking Bad. I dont even think theres anything good about New Mexico. Kinda makes sense to have Breaking Bad take place there. I mean shit if theres literally nothing to do in that god forsaken state other than doing donuts on the highway then you might as well just develop a crystal meth addiction. That way at least you Dont bother anyone. Driving a pick up truck like an asshole doing donuts and interrupting peoples day sounds like just about one of the most annoying things on the planet. If you cause any ounce of a traffic build up just for your own fun to think your a bad ass, you just deserve to get shot. Im not saying dying or anything but shoot up their truck, blow out the tires, hit them. Its all warranted and deserved. Kicked the ladder out from under them and put them back in their place when all 4 tires and all the side paneling has holes in them with the police arriving at the scene.
