Heroin laced with pesticide making way through N.J.
« on: January 14, 2016, 01:21:10 PM »
New Jersey State Police said heroin seized in Middlesex County last month tested positive for the pesticide Carbaryl, which can cause loss of coordination and involuntary convulsions. 
"As if there could possibly be one more reason to never, not ever, not even once take heroin, there's yet one more: Pesticide," State Police said in an announcement on their Facebook page.  Authorities said the substance was found in three separate brands of heroin in December, labeled "Level 10" with an image of syringes in purple ink, "Miracle" in red ink and "Top Chef" with an image of two butcher knives in red ink. The pesticide was found alongside other substances more typically mixed with heroin.  Discovery of the pesticide is the latest in a slew of substances authorities have found in bags of heroin in New Jersey recently. Fentanyl, an opioid several times more powerful than heroin, has been found across the state in 2014 and 2015.It was blamed for scores of overdose deaths in 2014. Last month, NJ Advance Media revealed that at least 128,000 are addicted to heroin in New Jersey, and more than 5,200 have died since 2004. The drug could cause complications in addition to the inherent danger of using heroin.  Carbaryl, commonly sold under the moniker "Sevin," is a popular pesticide most commonly found in home gardening and agricultural products and is listed as a likely carcinogen by the Environmental Protection Agency.  Carbaryl exposure can occur through skin contact, inhalation, or ingestion and adversely affects the respiratory and central nervous systems. According to the state police, symptoms of exposure may include nausea, stomach cramps, diarrhea, and excessive salivation. Other symptoms of high dosages may include sweating, blurring of vision, loss of coordination, and involuntary convulsions, the state police said.  Administration of naloxone, a drug used to counteract the effects of a heroin overdose, will not counteract the symptoms of pesticide consumption.

Maybe from poppy fields that have tried to of been eradicated from foreign crop dusters, and farmers not wanting to loose thier crops. That would be one dangerous batch to shoot up 😱

Probably.  They have also found levamisole in heroin, so maybe a farmer grabbed the wrong thing.  I don't know that most of them are well educated, or even really care.

Us older folks remember warning about Marijuana contaminated with "Paraquat" back in the '70's.


Remember?


Still, the idea of poisoning drugs and drug users seems like something right up the alley of a clandestine gov.org.
All matter is simply cooled and condensed energy.

This could have been a VERY VERY misguided attempt to use a pharmacologically active cut. Carbaryl is an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor, like nerve gas for bugs. So it would definitely have some pharmacological effects in the user. But damn that's mufukkin over the top messed up, putting that shit in your dope.

What are tryin to do, kill all their customers? Dummies.

And yeah, NJ peeps, and we've got several here, BOLO for this shit. They mentioned some stamp names in the article.

Got a text on Christmas telling me one of my old running partners od'd on Christmas Eve, at his house in middlesex county. Wonder if this had anything to do with it?  Motherfuckers got the game all the way fucked up there. MOTHERFUCKERS

It's a shame that with legalization and what not controls would be set in place to make our junk as safe as possible but most people would rather us just die. Fucking people with zero empathy

Exactly! Why can't the bitch say "If there wasn't enough reasons to legalize and regulate illegal drugs, Here's another". Fucking fucks.

I'm not sure who the bitch is.  The author is clearly a man, and even if it wasn't this is an important article that seems to appear to be relatively unbiased.  You won't find a call for legalization in any media I know of.  No reason to call them a bitch that I can see for including an argument that wouldn't go over well.  As right as it might be it wouldn't get past the editors.

Men can be bitchs! But truthfully, I dunno, I just read that part as a women saying it in my head for some reason. I meant the whole thing as more of a general statement... not really specifically toward who said that. The curses were just special effects... just trying to say that you probably read that in a voice that was much more serious than I meant it to come off. Not that I'm not serious about the sentiment...

I don't think I had enough coffee at that point either.  Reading it now I would respond totally differently.  Teaches me to post when I'm not quite awake!  I think I meant it half jokingly too, but it doesn't come across that way really.
