        After a surgeon's? error I was left with suicidal pain in my groin. Doctors? got me addicted, oh, sorry, dependent
        on Morphine-1100/10mg pills/month. Doctors? tried to force me to take Oxycodone, Oxycontin, Hydromorphone(Dilaudid),
        Fentanyl patches, EVERY opiate you could think of. Bad doctors or bad doctoring? Debatable, but every pain doctor(s)?
        I saw couldn't wait to whip out they're prescription pad. Doctor(s)? were my Drug Dealers and Pharmacies were my drug suppliers.

          I've had 2 nurses stole my morphine from Bakersfield Memorial Hospital after my l5s1 surgery.

          Horses are at least 5 time heavier than a human. One the horse feel the rush of dopamine, pain free happiness, the horse it's going to run its fastest. Horses are meant to run they're bred for that. My leg hurts so much it ruined my knee running up an escalator falling and puncturing my knee tendons. When I find the medication I need I can sing better notes I have more control. I can sing love. Lol I love opiates but hate ppl lack control

            It is given to horses to num the pain. You know that in long aerobic exercise it really hurts to push on? Google dramal uk cycling and find out they banned it because like 30% of club level cyclists were on it. Not the wisest thing to be on opiods and doing 50mph downhill in a bunch.

                Fentanyl is very short acting duhhhhhhh:/ It also is in no way "manipulated Morphine". Its fully synthetic:/ And this guy is supposed to know what hes talking about?, hahahaha Typical Joe Rogan bullshit:/ More than a few braincells short of a full biscuit tin,lol. Nothing is funnier than watching him struggle to make even a weak attempt at understanding what his intelligent guests talk about,[NOT this guy]lol..More bullshit, Fentanyl will show up in a standard narcotic drug screen as an opiate. Heroin does not show as Heroin, but breaks down into Morphine, this is what shows if a test is taken farther than just an "opiate" test:/:/ This is too funny, hah

                  Fentanyl is an amazing drug, when used appropriately, but like a lot of drugs, it can easily be abused.

                    Opiates, especially fentanyl are totally uppers for me. I think once you reach a certain point, and can handle/harness the high you change how it effects you.

                            For anyone curious, there were no non-Rx Nyquil with Codeine in the US in the 1990s. Joe's experience sounds more like it could be explained by the dextromethorphan in Nyquil.

                              Fentanyl, while indeed it does "come on faster" than morphine, it does _not_ have a longer half-life. In fact, Fentanyl has an incredibly short duration of action, which is part of what makes its abuse potential so high. The fact that micro-gram concentrations are active makes it even more dangerous (you could be in trouble for simply handling the substance unprotected, such as EMS/EMT).

                                        The FBI was behind people dying from Spiked Alcohol. They probably are involved with cutting all the drugs with Fentanyl.

                                          Tramadol made me extremely jumpy and did very little to help with pain.

                                          I have been on a stable dose of oxycontin (now oxyneo) & oxycodone (for breakthrough pain in between) for the passed 10 years. I'm at 35mgs/daily with cannabis and was offered fentanyl patches, which I declined.

                                          The trick with opiates & opioids, for me, has been to just take enough to lessen the pain so I can engage in relatively normal activity...when I started, I tried to completely eliminate pain, which led to resistance/tolerance.

                                          The added cannabis helps with pain tolerance(dissociation from the pain) & inflammation, depending upon the strains(Jack Herer by Sensi seed bank works best for me).

                                          This combination works best for me and hands down beats what they first had me on...
                                          ssri+nsaids+tramadol...ssri made me highly unstable/suicidal, nsaids gave me a bleeding ulcer & tramadol made me a nervous wreck.

                                              Fentanyl is also a great hospital drug because it has a beta-blocking effect in addition to being a potent opioid. Great for surgeries and medical emergencies but not for the streets.

                                                I agree I quit when they started pumping fent in NY. Not only is it so easy to OD the high is inferior to herion and doesn't last as long.

                                              codeine, dihydrocodeine, opium tincture and even some morphine formulations are available over the counter in the uk ie dont need a prescription.

                                                      Hey Joe, for a lot of people, especially people with a drinking affinity (and it may have something to do with a gene or set of genes that have to do with how people process depressants in their brain/body) low-mid level doses of opiates, basically as long as you aren’t laid out by it, it actually can act as a bit of a stimulant as well. You will become very chatty and excited about the world. I got a prescription for way too much hydrocodone when I had a dental procedure and my cousin and I would use it to go on hikes and just enjoy nature in the snow for hours during the winter, not fearing the cold, chain smoking, though admittedly kind of dreamy. It definitely gives addicts a bit of a jolt if they don’t take a dose that has them nodding.

                                                      Also I doubt any of those people like prince and Mac Miller didn’t know they were taking cut pills. They enjoyed the stronger experience. Fentanyl also has like a 90% bio ability intranasally, which is easier and more discreet than IV and obviously a really slippery slope.

                                                          The war on drugs is the reason for the opium epidemic. People that will do drugs will always do drugs. Just causes people to die from black market products that arn't controlled.

                                                                I'm Swedish and I met a cancer patient over here. She was dying and got a lot of fentanyl which is free (you pay around 200$ per year for all meds in Sweden and after that it is free)but she had to nag and nag to the doctor to get a cannabis medication. And she got better. But that cannabis medication is an exception from the free medicine program so it's very expensive. She had to sell her fentanyl to buy her cannabis medication so she could survive. And even tough she got better they were reluctant to prescribe it. She had to move to another country eventually where she got cannabis medication.

                                                                It's insane how messed up it is. Especially in Sweden.

                                                                  It would be a massive positive

                                                                  The people who want to take drugs are going to get them anyway, but by making them legal you'll get control over it & get these people off the street. Then eventually like smoking, no one will want to do it.
                                                                  It's totally logical to make drugs legal & by governments not making them legal is totally suspicious. I reckon governments & certain bent politicians & wealthy elites get paid off by the drug cartels

I smoke it raw but the process to make heroin isn't very involved apparently. Not a huge fan of it tbh, I much prefer the other things that I harvest.

Heroine SUCKS ass but the run speed of di-Moriphine is so fast and hard that its just not as fun but the opium is slow and big and plenty power for just getting off. More natural/better feeling than any any other narcotic.

                                                                                            Poppy seeds sold as spice have been fertile seeds for upteen years. The reason I said Schillings is I KNOW they will sprout. I read about them 40+ years ago in High Times, bought some, and damn if they didn't sprout.

                                                                                            I don't understand why fentanyl is such a proferred adulterant; I've been using Fentanyl patches for about 3 years, and they have no effect on me. They do help with my chronic pain, but there are NO secondary symptoms.

                                                                                            • Jonathan

You're also comparing a REGULATED patch, to fentanyl on the street. Not only are the two VASTLY different, the methods used to get the drug into the body are different as well. I will bet my life that if you took the doseage of your patch, turned it into a powder and shot it, it would have a much different effect on you.
