So given how I have some time on my hands and no ideas for flags or memes I decided to address a problem many may not know about my home state of New Jersey. We have a serious heroin issue in my state. In NJ the average purity level for heroin is 40% to 80%, meanwhile the average purity in most of New England is only 15%. The average street price in NJ is only 5$ a bag, for comparison a gram of crack cocaine is 80$ on average. All first responder vehicles in NJ are authorized to carry the anti opioid medicine naloxone aka narcan to deal with frequent heroin overdoses. From April to November 2014 alone there were 361 heroin overdoses treated with narcan.
Four of the larger unknown dangers of heroin are Wet, fire dope, Drano, and rat poison. Wet is an embalming fluid which can cause vivid hallucinations and permanent brain damage, it is used to "cut" the heroin to increase profit without increasing the purity. Drano is a drain cleaner which is often used to cut the heroin. Rat poisons are often used to cut heroin as well. Fire dope is a slang term for extremely strong heroin.
