SO many people are dead because of fentanyl. It's easy for people to discount those deaths because in most cases, it's a bad decision made by the decedent. I understand that sentiment, but I also remember all the dumb decisions I made as a teenager and young adult. We all have tried to do things and failed. Most times we have the opportunity to dust off and try again. It's heartbreaking to realize that when one uses something like heroin while knowing it may not be what they think it is, and they might not come back, they view that as better than what they are currently feeling and experiencing in life. These are sons, daughters, mothers, and fathers, etc. with people who love them desperately but can not help them. My own family has been devastated by fentanyl. In 2016, we lost my 18-year-old nephew to fentanyl overdose. In 2020, we lost my 23-year-old stepson to fentanyl overdose. I can think of more than a dozen friends or acquaintances from my past who are dead because of it also. There is no good reason for this shit to exist.

Even though I've lost two young men from my own family, the worst part of all this is the children left behind, and in some cases killed. I'm thankful that neither my nephew or my stepson had any children to be orphaned. The following link is to an article regarding a tragedy that happened literally down the road from my house. This heartbreaking chain of events has haunted me since learning of it, to the point of not even wanting to share the article. THIS is why this fentanyl shit has got to go! https://smokeybarn.com/sheriff-portland-infant-died-of-starvation-after-moms-od/

It's a wonder drug... You wonder if it'll kill you this time.

I've had it post surgery in a Duragesic patch. 12.5 micrograms per hour.. For 72 hours!

I ripped it off after a day because I grew tired of feeling constantly high. And that's the smallest dose they sold at the time (might be different now).

Also, about 30 min after putting it on, I tried to go to work. The wife was like "umm, you just had surgery, get back in the house". I felt zero pain. Could have hurt myself or someone else.

That shit screws with your brain. Should be for end of life care, not handed out like candy after a surgery. And they gave me a 15 day supply!

Insane.

100,000 die people a year from herion, Fentnyl, and Meth,. These drugs are biological and chemical weapons and I consider it an attack on America. Too many kids fall for this trap because they think it's okay to "try" it with friends. Unfortunately, all it takes is one time with these types of drugs. They are way too addictive but not only that detrimental to one's living ability. These drugs must be stopped at all cost. They are not the same as Marijuana or alcohol. They are extremely dangerous and we must do everything literally possible to get your kids away from these drugs. The only way we can really stop this is by taking out the major supply and it needs to be done by the US military and other tactical groups. Our children and their future cannot afford this any longer. I am so tired of hearing my friends relatives dying to this bullshit.
