    100K deaths in a year.  Holy cow.

    Fentanyl seems to be the leading cause of this.  I still ask why you would want to kill off your buyers by using that stuff?

    I guess I'm blissfully ignorant in that I don't even know what Fentanyl is. (I've hear of it but I don't know a damn thing about it).

    The equivalent of 3 rice grains of synthetic fentanyl will kill you. Don't worry I'm sure it'll be ravaging a town near you sooner than later.

    If you have kids coming of age it's definitely something you would want to have an understanding about.

    I’m given Fentanyl every time I have an endoscopy. It’s controlled in that setting.

    To use it at your discretion, willy-nilly? Just seems stupid to me.

    Then again, I’m more aware of my mortality now — and the consequences of my life choices — than I was in my teens or even early 20s.

    That's a different type of fentanyl. That's the kind they give women, like my wife, when going into labor with an epidural.

    Synthetic fentanyl is shipped here in droves from Mexico and China from production plants where it's made stupid cheap and is nearly untraceable.

    All fentanyl is synthetic, but you’re correct that the illicit fentanyl imported for the street drug trade is of much lower quality and more dangerous than the pharmaceutical grade fentanyl used in medical applications.

    Got it. Yeah the anesthesiologist told us it's definitely not what's on the street.
