Nine people died from fentanyl opioid overdoses in the Canadian city of Vancouver in just the past 24 hours, Mayor Gregor Robertson said Friday.
Perhaps this will play out like the crack cocaine epidemic did.
PJ O’Rourke has a doctor in one of his essays saying it will burn out naturally. Because the people who take it will be dead.
The problem with fentanyl being twofold. It’s very, very powerful. And the gap between a decent high and dead is not large. The two combine to make measurement of doses – and obviously it’s worse for an illegal product – difficult and thus lots of people die.
