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.
