Fentanyl found in Vancouver Pot - Update
The Vancouver Province is reporting the VPD announced that the police are now finding fentanyl turning up in batches of seized marijuana. That is messed up. Perhaps this is an argument in favor of the Hells Angels selling pot. I'm sure it's highly unlikely any pot coming out of the Black Door across the street from the Amsterdam cafe beside the Bulldog Cafe has any fentanyl in it. Yet the Hells Angels in Saskatchewan were busted for selling fentanyl. If anyone finds any from pot coming out of the Black Door with fentanyl in it, make sure to let me know. VPD said they would announce a large fentanyl bust today.
Vancity Buzz is reporting that the VPD has seiezed nearly 700,000 pills, large quantities of other drugs, weapons, and vehicles in Project Tainted. 13,000 oxycodone, 29,000 fentanyl pills, 9.5 kgs of crack cocaine and 5.5 kgs of powdered cocaine were seized. News 1130 is reporting that twelve people in Metro Vancouver have been hit with a total of 100 charges. CBC is reporting that Police sent a news release correcting the information to 71 charges against 10 people. CBC is also reporting that the fentanyl pills are known as green beans and are sold as fake oxycodone, but are actually fentanyl mixed with caffeine.
Update: One blog reader claims the pot that was found containing fentanyl were pre rolled joints but I can see nothing the media about that. I would like to confirm whether or not that is the case and find out how people can identify if they have pot that is laced with fentanyl.

f. in pot is poor product. People prefer their pot, with out additives. How to put yourself out of business by selling a tampered with product.ReplyDelete
Exactly. How does one tell fentanyl is in it? By look or smell?Delete
You could tell the pot has been adulterated if it's been dusted as the crystals or resin on pot are visible as trichomes which consist of a stalk or resin head, if you look closely you can make them out. Pot that has been handled poorly will have broken trichomes but not dust. If the pot is adulterated by dipping the pot into solution it would probably be harder, I once smoked pot adulterated with PCP and had no idea probably because it was dipped into a PCP solution.Delete
By look you can tell if it's been dusted but not if it's been dusted with fentanyl specifically. You need to examine the pot under a jewelers loop depending on the strain, some may be visible to the naked eye but you're looking to example the resin. If the pot isn't adulterated you're going to be able to make out the trichomes and broken resin heads/stalks forming the trichomes. If it's adulterated you're going to see a bunch of fine powder coating everything. If it's been adulterated with a liquid solution you're not going to be able to tell.Delete
No, you can't tell if anything is laced with fentanyl because it only takes infinitesimal amounts to be lethal. Like, the size of a grain of salt. You're not going to notice that in pot, no matter how closely you look. :(Delete
It's an attempt to get people hooked on harder stuff than pot......but seriously, these people are fucking vampires, and they need a stake driven through their hearts. I will leave the redemption and forgiveness part to Agent K, I am more focused on the damage they are doing until (and if, as many never do) they come to that point. If getting rid of them saves dozens of others, doing away with them is fine with me.ReplyDelete
"Slay those who are evil". That's my outlook.
lol "Slay those who are evil"? Somehow I don't think that's in the Bible or the Quran yet both have used that very principle. Whoever did this is indeed a predator.Delete
I doubt they put heroin stuff in pot people would loose their shit i mean consumers get mad when theirs too much fertilizer or not flushed well enough but i digress number one thing to check for weed is the ash the light grey then its ok dark thick id be suspiciousReplyDelete
Light grey? You mean in hash not ash?Delete
He's referring to the color of the ash. Weed that hasn't been grown with a lot of fertilizers and or has been flushed (watered without fertilizer for an extended amount of time pre harvest) is going to be preferred for smoking and will have a white ash. If there's a bunch of fertilizer salts built up they appear in the ash by darkening it. Unfortunately a lot of street weed isn't great so this won't work most of the time and fentanyl probably won't be found in snobby part markets so this is something that's likely to target youths.Delete
no i mean ash if you roll a joint and light it, if the ash is light and grey means the weeds been flushed properly and doesn't have any extras where as if the ash is dark and thick then id wonder also you'd be able to taste it if there was any extra shit in thereReplyDelete
That makes more sense, thanks.Delete
Took 5 yrs to figure these guys out. ..and this was just one tentacle ...I don't see any reports of a pill press being seized...they are pressing thier bail as we speak . lolReplyDelete
CBC: "A Thunder Bay, Ont. judge has sentenced John Tsekouras to nine and a half years in prison."ReplyDelete
"The sentence was handed down on Friday afternoon in Superior Court."
"Thunder Bay police say Tsekouras is the head of one of northwestern Ontario's biggest drug distribution networks. He was found guilty on Thursday of drug possession, trafficking and conspiracy to traffic."
