Fentanyl-laced heroin found in Ohio Mansfield, Columbus labs identify fatal combo Friday, June 16, 2006 Margaret Harding THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH
MANSFIELD, Ohio The deadly mix of drugs that has killed addicts in Detroit, Chicago and Philadelphia has reached Ohio.
Mansfield police have identified the powerful prescription painkiller fentanyl in six of the last 10 batches of heroin confiscated by police.
Mansfield police laboratory director Anthony Tambasco said he decided to start looking for fentanyl after hearing about the deaths in Detroit just before Memorial Day. Authorities there have confirmed 100 fentanyl/heroin deaths. Another 60 were confirmed in the Chicago area.
"Its not something you normally look for," Tambasco said.

See the movie "Brick". A great film noir set in a southern California high school with nary a swear word used.
I wonder if there will be a recall? :)
If it's in Detroit, it might as well be in Ohio....
I will admit one thing about the recent tragedies surrounding this:
We know each death was due to using illegal drugs.
It's a sad way to find out who is supporting the drug cartels.
Fentanyl is a painkiller, for cancer patients is is used as a patch
Heroin addicts are dying by the bushel.
If there is a downside to this, I haven't seen it yet.
This is terrible, whatever will the city do if there is a junkie shortage?
Disclaimer: Not a hijack attempt. Just that it seems the only people in my city doing horse are hispanic.
Who would have thought you could die from shooting heroin?
LOL the only downside is the killer down effect! LMAO
That's exactly what my mother had.
What I can't understand is why would dealers be killing off their customers?
Is this where all the Libertarians post that if we allowed this to all be legal there would be heaven on earth?
It's not intentional. Drug dealers ain't the smartest out there. There was an incident a while back (10+ years) where a guy killed himself while running a meth lab.
Turns out he'd failed chemistry twice in high school. SO WHY WAS THE IDJIT RUNNING A METH LAB?
I'm not a libertarian, but if it were legal the contents and potency would be known.
People are mistakenly injecting a drug many times stronger than what they are used to doing. You may think they deserve to die for their drug use, but you can't blame the lack of quality control on an illict substance on people who would rather see it legalized and controlled.
I don't remember the last time I read about someone being blinded by drinking methanol that was in the whiskey they bought at a state liquor store.
No, but some of the victims would likely go to Heaven.
