The heroin deaths in Manatee have skyrocketed in the last eighteen months. The medical examiner for Manatee recently lectured and explained the cause.
The heroin in Manatee is laced with

  • Carfentanil
  • Acetyfebtanyl
  • Furanylfentnyl

As of two weeks ago, Carfentanil was responsible for 35 of the heroin overdoses. In 2013, there were ten overdoses. In the last eighteen months there have been 170 overdoses and the count is rising. As a local drug defense lawyer it breaks my heart to see so many addicts dying from what is basically poison.

An addict is better off in jail than on a slab in the medical examiner’s office. Many of the people getting hooked on heroin were pill poppers and when the supply ran out turned to the Mexican brown heroin. You have to be nuts to be using when the danger is so great. If you have a relative who is an addict, get them help. You have to break the cycle or they are going to die.
