The rise of Opioid drugs has caused an uproar all over the world. It seems to be getting worse, as innocent kids are learning how to get their hands on these killers.
And it’s not difficult, as the majority of drugs nowadays can be purchase with a simple click of a button. All they need is internet access, a little cash and an address to send the lethal substances to.
A recent toxicology test confirmed that two 13-year -old boys from Utah, overdosed on a synthetic drug that they purchased online.
The drug, which is often called “Pink,” is the same drug that was discovered at the house of Prince after he died earlier this year.
The drug is apparently still going strong as it took the lives of 13-year old Ryan Ainsworth and Grant Seaver of Park City, Utah.
Also known as U-47700, the drug is new to the opioid family, and it is said to be one that is synthesized overseas in labs. Since the recreational drug is still considered so new, it has not been listed as illegal.
How on earth did such a lethal drug make its way to Park City, Utah?
Simple. All it took was for a group of teenagers to get together and order the drug online.
It was shipped from China and got into the hands of one of the teenagers who has been charged with distribution of a controlled substance and reckless endangerment.
Considering the drug can easily be purchased online for $40, there is no telling what it is laced with, and like other opioids on the market, it is impossible to gauge how much is safe to take.
