Just one minute ago on TV here, there was a piece
on a young many who died. At first it was considered
suicide, but now the authorities are thinking it was
"murder", as an additive of Fentanyl to a street drug
to make it more potent, which made it so potent that
the young man died.
It is not unreasonable to consider these cases murder. The question
I have is who is the murderer?
The drug dealer, and also the drug dealer's
chain of providers, insofar as they will be
identified which is probably not very far.

Other drugs (alcohol/nicotine ect) are also murderous and I wonder
how, given human proclivities, just how society can eliminate the
In my early 30's I was a frequent, almost
daily, user of speed for a while, so I really
don't have much room to talk. I only snorted
it though, never injected anything, and never
felt addicted though some people thought I
was. I quit abruptly without any difficulty at
all. Since then I don't think I've indulged in
anything but marijuana and hashish, but
less and less as time went on. I wouldn't
refuse if anybody offered me any, but it's
unlikely anybody will, now. I quit before
the era of synthetic additives, fortunately.
Marijuana is legal now, and I did buy some
a couple of times, but the legal stuff never
seems to pack much of a punch, even
when it's named "Chernobyl" as was the
case with one batch I bought in a store.
Maybe I'm just too old to get high anymore.

Mao, in China, did eliminate the use of opium but with
terrible weapons of state and a more compliant population(?).
I don't think his methods would work here. How is Duterte doing
using similar tools?
Maybe "Duterte" was mentioned in this
thread, but I don't recall ever seeing the
name before your mention just now.
