Kentucky officials reeling after recent overdose epidemic hits one county 28 overdoses and 2 dead in 1 day.
Heroin is becoming increasingly dangerous over the past few years. It is hard to find a dose of heroin that has not been cut with Fentanyl. The problem is in the dosage and mixing practices of amateur drug dealers. Trying to stretch their supply and make more product at an increasingly cheaper price has led to the overdose rate to skyrocket throughout the state.
One man is left dead after more than a dozen people overdosed from Heroin in Jennings county August 23, 2016 leading officers to an arrest in the case. Police are warning people to spread the word on the streets that there is a shipment of heroin that has had 7 confirmed and 9 possible overdoses in a matter of a couple of hours. If you know of someone who might have been in contact with this heroin, please warn them that this is very strong and full of Fentanyl dosed in poorly mixed packages.
Kentucky is facing an upward battle trying to overcome this heroin epidemic. The level of addiction is finding its way into the suburbs of the state due to the crackdown and availability of black market prescription opioid medications. This has left a void in the drug trade that was quickly filled with a new more powerful Heroin coming in from Mexico.
These recent spikes in heroin related deaths come as no surprise after the discovery of Carfentanil in some batches of heroin in Ohio. The Heroin that has been seized as of recent is going through testing to determine if in fact there is a bigger problem that needs top be addressed. If in fact Elephant tranquilizers are to blame, the next step will be to trace the source of the drug and disrupt its distribution.
