    1. Yes but the teens are dying of overdoses and they no longer growing.

      The adults are dying too and still growing and spreading among them - as well as teens. Sad.

    3. Doubt it. What do even mean by growing? Growing since last year? Sure. But growing in the past 4 to 6 months? I seriously doubt that considering the mass awareness of fentanyl now which the teens are not even after. They’re after normal opioids and downers. Why would the coming months bring more clueless teens? Wouldn’t they have already gotten into it by now? The main driving force of this epidemic among teens is just them not realizing that oxy is all but extinct and even Xanax should always be tested for fent now. Why would the ignorance be growing compared to the beginning of this year? Makes no sense. Everybody should be on the same page by now if you’re at least in your mid teens or older.

      Your doubt is not evidence but only your state of mind. The evidence points that's it is spreading but hopefully it tapers off (no pun].

    6. 6:17 it's growing in a couple ways, one of which you mentioned. The price keeps dropping, now the pills are $2-$3 here in Seattle so people are getting bigger and bigger habits. Teens are "After normal opioids and downers". Problem is, those "normal" pills are fakes with fentanyl

      Delete
    7. 7:49 Where’s the evidence that teen use of fentanyl is rising (seemingly by the month) as you claim?

      Delete
    8. 10:07 Solved? Legalization is the only thing that will “solve”

      Delete
    9. 9:26 They’ve literally been 2 - $3 all year. Nothing has changed and there were honestly way more young people mistaking real drugs and accidentally dying from fentanyl in early spring of this year compared to now, like March. Now it’s just the occasional news story.

      “Problem is, those ‘normal’ pills are fakes with fentanyl”

      That’s precisely my point though… As of mid to late 2022 everyone should know by now that it’s all fentanyl which is why accidental use should be going down in the coming months not up. However winter always does bring disproportionate use of opioids so I will keep that in mind. But I just don’t see how these accidental overdoses of thinking you’re taking something else can continue when even young teens know from 2019, 2020, 2021 and now early 2022 that their street “oxy“ is all fake. Word is out so how would this phenomenon not decrease? Again, I’m talking about teen use and people taking what they think is Xanax or oxycodone. There’s no way that can continue past 2022 to the large degree it did in 2020 - 2022. Only reason it was so big then and even early this year is because not everyone got the memo. Everyone has the memo now though

    2. It’s not gonna be worse in 5 - 10 years dummy. We’re in the zenith of fent currently. If you think it will be bigger in the coming years then you have no idea how this drug stuff works. This is why we’re so fucked. We’re living in an epidemic of drug ignorance too.

    3. 6:21 synthetic dope has just started. So many analogs and new formulas being made. It’s just the start.

    4. Yup, nuclear carriers in the waters funded by America, Americans addicted to their cheap electronic products, and the coup de gras- fentanyl trojan-horsed into opioids for our youth. Yup, fucking china has it all figured out (with the complicity of the God Damned mexicans!).

  3. The war on drugs is what has lead to fentanyl growing

    1. Specifically cracking down on oxy in the early 2010s and then cracking down on Mexican heroin and poppy farming in the mid 2010s. They can’t slow fentanyl though. It’s a ghost drug made much more covertly and in secret.

      Delete
    2. Your a clever thinker.
      Your saying the war on drugs caused this.
      So if there was no war on drugs, fentanyl would not be around.
      I will put in a nomination for you to be a Canadate for the Nobel Peace Prize.

      Delete
    3. 6:28 If there is no more war on drugs then fentanyl what obviously not be a problem. People who wanted to use fent tat that point (not sure why they would want to) would just use transdermal patches and measured doses pharmaceutically. But in a world without a war on drugs, most people would just want opium or morphine or even heroin or oxy. Not something as lacking in euphoria as fentanyl, which has a very narrow therapeutic and recreational index.

    2. Lol tell those boomers about that pesky cardiotoxic levels. Some can't even dri k coffee thanks to cocaine/crack. Not to mention crackheada were violent sleepers not so much.

    3. Well lethal overdoses are way less common on stimulants than downers overall but crack/cocaine is actually a fairly dangerous potentially lethal stim. Very bad for the heart, especially when mixed with alcohol or nicotine and it’s sort of widely believed that cocaethylene may be responsible for a lot of the sudden deaths seen in cocaine use. Remember Len Bias? Cocaine is definitely not easy on the body. Even amphetamines are less lethal than cocaine since they’re more of an insult to the brain than the heart. Heart stuff is scary dude. Don’t take that shit lightly and be careful when mixing coke/crack with any other substance; even weed.

  6. And who was it a week ago on the last fentanyl post that said od’s in the states are going down. Like I said, it’s rising up here and it’s rising down there.

    1. Nobody said overdoses were going down. We were talking about teen use and teenage enthusiasm for opioids in general decreasing because of all this madness with fentanyl in everything and there’s honestly nothing to suggest that isn’t happening. Where is the evidence that teen use of fentanyl specifically has grown since March of this year?

  7. If it continues to spiral more and more over the coming years, which I'm sure it will, it might lead the U.S. to designate the cartels as terrorist organizations. That would be a game changer.

  10. Quick Story. On July first of 2022 me, my sister and her boyfriend helped my mom paint her living room. Around that time I was consuming meth which is not so long ago. So I was craving some meth so I can finish faster painting. So I asked my family if they wanted anything from the store so I can buy a sack of meth. I seen two of my friends down the block and I asked them if they had any they said yeah but I thought about it and told them I'll come back when I finish painting because I would know that my family will notice that I was on it. So when I went back to the house to finish painting I came back out and they we're both dead they had gave them fentanyl. The paramedics were trying to revive them but it was too late and we asked what happened and they said fentanyl. If I would of bought it I think I would not been able to share this story. One of them was born in L.A they called him Fantasma which means ghost and the other friend was from Michoacán Mexico and they called him Chalino named after a singer or you could say all the people named Rosalino call them Chalino. Just wanted to share this story.

    1. So you're trying to say, the Meth was laced with fentanyl, and because you were painting, you did not get it. Well son it's a wake up call, leave the fuken drugs alone, unless you want to play Russian roulette again.

    2. 1:28 So do you at least use fentanyl test strips for your drugs/meth now? Almost everybody I know who does coke these days basically does that so it seems pretty reckless not to be doing that at this point especially if you’re fucking with fairly hard drugs like coke and meth. There’s just absolutely no excuse for not using a testing kit these days.

    3. 2:56 he should not be using no drugs whatsoever period. Who will have sympathy when he keeps using drugs, he will be labeled a junkie.

    5. 8:31 your story is understandable, but keep up on the pipe, like the person said to you, you will be labeled a junkie, you will steal from family, all because you need your daily fix.

    6. 5:33 I see amphetamine use similarly to how I see use of coffee. What is “drugs” to you?

      Delete
    7. That's why I try to tell people before you start judging a meth abuser ask. for the people that never been through it. Because not all people that use meth do the same things some people work under the influence some people are out there stealing some are selling there body for that shit. Not all people can function with other people while under influence. But at the end of the day it's a horrible drug.

    8. Meth is an addictive drug, you lose your teeth, your face starts looking like the moon.

    9. 9:21 even losing his ass does not scare an addict, because that's what addiction means.

  11. @1:28 well I stopped using meth since like August I'm going for 2 months now. That's it for me bro.

  12. This is garbage. Anyone in the last five years who claims that they "didn't know" they were ingesting fent when taking perc 30's is absolutely lying their little balls off. Since the Trump opioid reforms on prescription meds, OXY is virtually unheard of on the streets.
    And this little bish Charlie is a shit eating mealy mouth liar. Nobody at a party or elsewhere mistakes blues for ecstasy ever...nor do normal people who don't do fet have freaking narcan laying around.
    This is a full on propaganda campaign designed to bolster the war on drugs complete with a dough eyed white boy mascot .
    This is why we suck. We can't win like this. Make em all legal by scrip and easier to access, that's the only way. Hell, fet already has been a legal med for 40 odd years. It is only because of the difficulty to attain prescription drugs and the cartels manufacturing weird analogs to fill the demand that people die today. If the lethality of street fet doesn't prove that prohibition is a farce given it's proliferation, nothin will.
