Sinaloa Cartels Heroin-Fentanyl Mix has landed in Arizona

Lucio R Borderland Beat from Arizona Daily Star
  

A strong synthetic opioid made by the Sinaloa cartel is increasingly making its way through Arizona, and officials fear a rise in drug-related deaths will follow.

The strongest opioid available in medical treatment, pharmaceutical fentanyl, is used to treat severe pain and is usually administered through a patch. The euphoria-inducing drug is up to 50 times stronger than heroin and up to 100 times more potent than morphine.

Over the last couple of years, more than 700 people have died of fentanyl abuse in the United States, but the real number is likely higher because many state labs and coroner’s offices do not routinely test for fentanyl. Most deaths are attributed to the illegally manufactured version of the drug.

Since 2015, law enforcement agencies in Arizona have made at least five seizures of fentanyl — ranging from 4 ounces to 16 pounds — found inside stash houses and vehicles.
There are about 500,000 potential lethal doses of fentanyl in about 2 pounds, the Drug Enforcement Administration calculates. The equivalent to three grains of salt can be lethal to someone with a low tolerance.

“Fentanyl can put people to sleep to the point they can stop breathing,” said Greg Hess, chief medical examiner in Pima County. “Because fentanyl is more potent, the window or margin of error might be less for someone not as experienced.”

Only a small amount is needed of the illegal powder fentanyl cartels make to mix with heroin to make it stronger. Nationwide, persons dying from fentanyl are mostly heroin users exposed to fentanyl without knowing it.

There is no state data on fentanyl-related deaths, but the Pima County Office of the Medical Examiner reported an increase from seven overdose deaths where fentanyl was listed as a contributing factor in 2014 to 17 last year.

The numbers include all overdose cases from Cochise, Santa Cruz and Pinal counties and additional cases from eight other counties.

Another report from today (Tuesday) also about a fentanyl mix:

Nearly 30 people have overdosed and six people have died in less than a week in Sacramento, California after using a tainted form of a narcotic painkiller being sold on that city's streets.

A batch of the opiate Norco being sold in the California capital appears to have been laced with fentanyl, an opiate that is roughly 100 times more potent than heroin, according to the Los Angeles Times.


The Sacramento County Division of Public Health reported on Tuesday that the drug has caused at least 28 overdoes and six deaths since March 23.

      --that is where the pushers need to get cogidos...

    2. 509 am - goddamn 509 am? There has to be something better to do at that time, like not be on the Internet and interact with real people in real life. Anyways you sound like the parent or family member of a junkie, why don't you pull your head out of your ass and realize I was simply pointing out that the main reason the shit exists is because............. You guessed it, there's someone stupid enough to put it in their system. Don't get butt hurt homie. I realize there's people who get addicted to pain killers, what the fuck is that to me? You act like the goddamn market isn't saturated by young stupid people without the sufficient brains enough to realize they are fucking themselves for life doing that shit.

  10. Pima County and its corrupt Sheriff Chris Nanos deserves this influx of drugs into his county. That fucker overspends on bullshit but when caught he blames President Obama for his departments inadequacies. Typical Ring Wing move. When all fails blame the President.

    2. @ 8:04 Wish the cartels would do us all a favor and sell their drugs uncut so that all the drug users in this country would overdose and die also. I for one don't care about stupid drug users but this would probably mean half the U.S. would be wiped out including a fair amount of children under 16 years of age and possibly as young as 8 or younger.

      You know there are whole society and culture through out the world that DO NOT use drugs and have HARD time sentences and even death if caught using / distributing ?

      These aren't 3rd world countries and some are point is its up to the individual to not do them and up to the politicians to not encourage or turn a blind eye to the problem.

      We just buried a joven last week, had all the above you named, he was HS Valedictorian, began medical school direct from HS, brilliant, loved, blessed with everything one would have on a wish list of life.

      yet, it happened.

  28. There are several types of fentanyl. Much stonger than heroin (some forms are said to be 2,000 times stronger than diacetylmorphine) and ~40 years ago there was an endemic spike in use by pharmacists as it was virtually undetectable in urine analysis. I actually remember an addict who over dosed and died in ~1974 of out of New Mexico but living in the Bay Area. Very popular and not a huge risk taker but got blind sided by this fentanyl. In the early 70's fentanyl was often called 'china white' on the Left Coast and it was very intermittent.

  29. Heroin use is idiotic. All I need to reach extasis is a good piece of ass and there is plenty in this world. As I get old I want to keep my body in great shape so I can enjoy sex longer. I don't want to destroy my pinga and my entire body injecting that crap. Who wants his cats eating his body after an overdose?
