50x Stronger Than Heroin – This Drug Is Causing Mayhem In Britain [Video]

Story from: 2oceansvibe.com

I remember as a kid, particularly after watching Trainspotting, thinking that heroin was the most destructive drug the world will ever see.

You wouldn’t recommend that anyone dabble in the brown sugar, of course, but nowadays it seems like every few months some other substance emerges as a new killer.

We have our own tik and whoonga drug problems to worry about in South Africa, but over on Mud Island there is an alarming rise in the use of fentanyl.

If it sounds familiar that’s because it’s the drug that killed the singer Prince (HERE), and some estimates say that it has killed at least 60 people in the UK this year alone.

50 times more powerful than heroin, and up to 40 000 times stronger than morphine, a new BBC doccie focuses on the effects the drug has had in the city of Hull.

Below from the Hull Daily Mail:

Drug users in Hull who are hooked on fentanyl have revealed the harrowing extent of their addictions in a new BBC Three documentary.

As part of the Drugs Map Of Britain series, the ninth episode saw crews follow drug users in Hull for two weeks in July to show the effects caused by the controversial drug fentanyl…

The main focus of the 25-minute programme, which aired on BBC iPlayer on Sunday, was Luke, a young drug user who is homeless after being abandoned by his grandparents following the death of his parents.

Just a gentle reminder ahead of the weekend to not be too silly, peeps:
