Another Plague

I can feel sorry for the families of idiots who use drugs, not so much for the users. And it looks like there is going to be a lot more heartache for those families as dealers are cutting heroin with another drug - elephant sedatives. Heroin is a downer, I can only imagine what another powerful sedative will do in conjunction with a shot of horse.

The appearance of carfentanil, one of the most potent opioids known to investigators, adds another twist to the fight against painkillers in a country already awash in heroin and fentanyl cases.

Each time authorities start to get a handle on one type of drug, another seems to pop up, said Joseph Pinjuh, chief of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force and narcotics unit for the U.S. attorney in Cleveland.

“You feel like a kid with his finger in the dike, you know?” he said. “We’re running out of fingers.”

We need to enact laws like the Philippines did - just shoot the dealers wherever you find them. They did 300 last month alone.
