The fentanyl crisis affecting Vancouver’s downtown Eastside is part of a Canada-wide crisis. Governments across the country are scrambling to adjust policies related to the misuse of opioids, as well as developing strategies to help front-line workers respond to a surge in overdoses.

British Columbia is suffering from an epidemic of fatal drug overdoses. Illicit fentanyl and carfentanil are fueling a public-health emergency. This is part 4 of 9 in an Instagram mosaic highlighting the human impact of the crisis.

The Next Big Thing: #Carfentanil. Today on the blog, what was originally intended as an elephant tranquilizer is now being used to lace #heroin, and has been responsible for many #overdoses across the nation.

Every day there's always something that reminds me of you, it might be something that I see, or something that someone says, and it all comes back again. Remembering all the times we've spent together, all the happiness and the fun, and then once again I feel the pain of life without my son. They say time will heal, but I know that is not true, because there is not a day that goes by, that I don't cry for you.❤

The original numbers were startling enough — 30 #heroin overdoses across Cincinnati in a single weekend.
————————
Then they just kept climbing.
————————
Seventy-eight more overdoses and at least three deaths were reported during a 48-hour period Tuesday and Wednesday.
—————————
And at the end of last week, after a six-day stretch of emergency-room visits that exhausted first responders and their medical supplies, the overdose tally soared to a number health officials are calling “unprecedented”: 174.
—————————
On average, Cincinnati has four overdose reports per day, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported, and usually no more than 20 or 25 in a given week.
————————
[Heroin cut with #elephanttranquilizer may have caused 60 overdoses across two states in just 48 hours]
————————
But pure heroin is what’s responsible for that average. And that’s not what’s on the streets now, they say. The culprit responsible for the staggering number was probably heroin cut with the latest #opioid boost meant to deliver consumers a stronger, extended high — #carfentanil. That’s a tranquilizer for, among other large animals, elephants. And it’s 10,000 times as strong as #morphine. 😐

Special thanks to @wfla John Rogers and @fox13.news Kimberly Kuizon for talking to Captain John Walsh about the arrest of Melissa Winings, who faces Manslaughter today after she supplied #Carfentanil to a man who died from an overdose. Watch their stories tonight!

#carfentanil es la peligrosa droga que desembarca en #miami

#carfentanil warn ur friends . Was told this is shit is so lethal it can take out a 4 mile radius out . Terrorist have begun to make fake #Xanax #painkiller and lace #heroin wit it. Already responsible for many deaths in Cincinnati. Current narcon dose is 2mg it takes 10 MGs of narcon to reverse effects. Death in 20 mins.

In an attempt to turn back the rising tide of overdose deaths, health authorities in B.C. have flooded the Downtown Eastside with naloxone kits.
Naloxone is an opioid antagonist. It can reverse the deadly effects of fentanyl and carfentanil when administered during an overdose.

Made our way to Chester County for an important story. The drug/opioid epidemic may have just taken a drastic turn. #Chesco DA Tom Hogan says a man overdosed on #carfentanil, a tranquilizer 10,000 times deadlier than heroin. Police say they've arrested the dealer, who's looking at 40 years behind bars. Hogan told 69 News, "If you get a drug this strong and people are still taking it, what is next?"

So we've talked before about the rise of fentanyl analogs in opiate and opioid overdoses, and recently some new players have popped up on my tox reports. Butyryl fentanyl, furanyl fentanyl, para-fluorobutyryl fentanyl/FIBF…all forms of fentanyl that have been slightly tweaked, and all deadly.

But I've been waiting for carfentanil – a form of fentanyl so powerful that NO amount of dilution is safe for human use – to pop up in the areas in which I practice, and the word is that it has arrived. To give you some perspective – the amount depicted in the photo above isn't how much fatal to people, but instead what's needed to incapacitate a 4-ton elephant. Last August, a kilogram of carfentanil shipped from China to Vancouver, BC was seized in transit by local authorities; that's enough product to kill EVERYONE IN CANADA, with enough left over to wipe out all of New York City, as well. (Which begs the question – who the hell needs a kilo of carfentanil? How on earth was the recipient planning to distribute that? Or store it safely?) Words are pretty inadequate to describe the effect of carfentanil-laced heroin on any given population. I'm pretty sure I won't need to wait for tox report to know that carfentanil has tainted the local heroin supply - dozens of fatal overdoses over a short period, or the word that there is just no more room for bodies in the cooler are probably reliable indicators.
First responders, paramedics, EMTs, ER docs, and death investigators – please be very, very careful out there. This is uncharted territory.

On a happier note, I'm pleased to report that Clint, the cat rescued by @project.meow who has micro-ophthalmia, has been adopted! New pic of his handsome self is up at @project.meow. #forensic #pathology #deathunderglass #autopsy #opiates #overdose #heroin #fentanyl #carfentanil #projectmeow

Gray Death can be composed of heroin, fentanyl, carfentanil, U-47700, other synthetic opioids and unknown additives. While all batches of Gray Death contain potentially deadly doses of opioids, there is limited consistency in their composition. It has the appearance of fine, powdery cement or chunky concrete. Gray Death is further fueling the opioid epidemic and overdose deaths.

Big man, little suit hahaha.😂 1000° of plastic PPE. It was worse for him than it was me lol. Gown up, get in, get out. No messing around. This guy poured more sweat in 10 mins than I did in my entire work out. Its sad, but this is unfortunately, what the drug crisis and the safety of healthcare workers has come down to. #contrabandsearches #carfentanil #PPE #hotterthanhot #seriouspainintheass #stopdoingdrugs #kthanks #sincerelyhealthcareworkers

They should charge you with attempted murder if you get caught selling fentanyl or carfentanil! How many more kids need to die before they shut this shit down! If the police won't do it the friends and families of the victims will! Opiate deaths dropped over 25% in the states that have Marijuana... Florida passed medical marijuana with an overwhelming majority of the voters! Hurry the fuck up and make it more like California and save a few of these kids lives! So sad seeing young people dying every week from overdosing! And it all starts from the prescriptions. Oxys and Roxys... it's much cheaper and more available to buy "heroin" and now all these kids wind up dead... I'm sick of reading about it and something needs to be done immediately!! Justice or street justice...the problem needs to be taken care of now! #FentanylKills #Carfentanil #RIP

Did You Know…The potent opiate drug #Carfentanil is linked to at least 53 deaths in Broward County in 2016, more than any other county in the nation?

#BigPharma #BigPharmaisTheTerrorist #terrorist #terrorism "#DrugOverdoseDeaths in #2016 most likely exceeded 59,000, largest jump ever recorded in #UnitedStates, according to preliminary data compiled by The New York Times. Death count is latest consequence of an escalating #publichealth crisis: #opioidAddiction, now made more deadly by an influx of illicitly manufactured #fentanyl and similar drugs. Drug overdoses are now leading cause of death among #Americans under 50. Although #data is preliminary, best estimate is that deaths rose 19% over the 52,404 recorded in #2015. And all evidence suggests the problem has continued to worsen in #2017. Because drug deaths take a long time to certify, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will not be able to calculate final numbers until December...so many last year that on three separate occasions the #county had to request refrigerated trailers to store bodies because they’d run out of space in #morgue. It’s not unique to Akron. Coroners’ offices throughout state are being overwhelmed...In some Ohio counties, deaths from #heroin have virtually disappeared. Instead, culprit is #fentanyl or one of its many analogues. In Montgomery County, of the 100 drug overdose deaths recorded in January and February, only three people tested positive for heroin; 99 tested positive for fentanyl or an analogues.
Fentanyl isn’t new. But over the past three years, it has been popping up in #drugseizures across country...Most of the time, it’s sold on the street as heroin, or drug traffickers use it to make cheap counterfeit prescription opioids. Fentanyls are showing up in cocaine as well, contributing to an increase in cocaine-related overdoses.
Most deadly of fentanyl analogues is #carfentanil, an elephant tranquilizer 5,000 times stronger than heroin. Amount smaller than few grains of salt can be lethal...Early data from 2017 suggests that drug overdose deaths will continue to rise this year...Over two million Americans estimated to be dependent on opioids, and additional 95 million used prescription painkillers in the past year"

I wasn't going to make a post but couldn't help myself, today marks 2 months since I've spoken to my son. There is no “moving on,” or “getting over it.” There is no bow, no fix, no solution to my heartache. There is no end to the ways I will grieve and for how long I will grieve. There is no glue for my broken heart, no medicine for my pain, no going back in time. For as long as I breathe, I will grieve and ache and love my son with all my heart and soul. There will never come a time where I won’t think about who my son would be, and how he was woven perfectly into the tapestry of our family. I wish people could understand that grief lasts forever because love lasts forever; that the loss of a child is not one finite event, it is a continuous loss that unfolds minute by minute over the course of a lifetime. Every missed birthday, holiday, weddings that will never be; grandchildren that should have been but will never be born– an entire generation of people are irrevocably altered forever. I can't just get over it, yes I know I have 2 other children and because of them I'm starting counseling Tuesday, I need you to pray for me please, I'm so tired of people telling me how I should or shouldn't grieve, what's the right way or what worked for them, and I'm really sick of hearing he's in a better place! I'm selfish I want him here with me. I love you and miss you so much Trey!
