(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Earlier this morning, a woman was indulging in some recreational cocaine use when she became unresponsive. It is believed the woman’s cocaine was tainted with some form of “down”.

“Down” is a street term that engulfs multiple drugs such as heroin, fentanyl, carfentanil, etc. “Purple down” and “blue down” are a mix of those three drugs and often contain various other drugs such as crystal meth and chemical cleaning agents.

A person on the scene before first responders arrived narcanned the woman and she was revived and regained consciousness.

Upon the arrival of first responders, the woman was transported by ambulance to the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre where she will be monitored for a while before likely being released back into the public.

Narcan is a drug that temporarily reverses overdose symptoms caused by opiates, such as heroin, fentanyl and “down”. The drug is available at no cost at pharmacies across the city and staff will provide information and a lesson on how to administer the drug. Always ensure that you call 911 when you suspect someone has overdosed. Waiting even seconds can be the difference between life and death.

  1. Stop handing out that Narcan! Let nature take it’s course. Not like these addicts will be any significant loss to society. On the contrary, a few less scammers on the dole.

    1. anyone can become a drug addict, its all situational. I wouldn’t judge someone for being a drug addict because the chemicals in the drugs will change the way your brain is wired and cause changes in your thinking and actions without any intention of it, that is the nature of drug addiction, Allot of really good kind hearted people let drugs get the best of them and its really sad. My brother passed away from a drug overdose about 2 months ago now and I miss him more then ever, He never ripped anyone off and he looked out for all his friends and family around him, if people were better trained on dealing with overdose and addiction maybe I would still have my big brother around too come have Christmas dinner with me and the rest of my family, its not the drug addicts who deserve too die but rather the drug dealers perhaps.

    2. Rex I have to agree about the Narcan bs. All it does is allows these same people to carelessly take these drugs ZERO fear, because what’s to fear when the cure is right beside you. If there was no Narcan I can guarantee that once people start dropping like flies than a LOT of these people would get scared enough to stop. With a methadone clinic every 5 blocks in this town there is no reason why people can’t just go there for there fix and maybe some guidance on how to stop using period. I have no more sympathy left for these people that are so selfish to not be smarter, get the help they need, and not put their families and friends through this bullshit.

  2. Some of your comments are ok but.,this one is totally wrong.
    Not all people with addiction issues are bad people. Some become addicts because they were prescribed drugs that are addictive by idiot doctors

    1. Never said they were all “bad”. I’m saying that in the vast majority of cases, they’re a burden to society and their absence won’t have a negative impact on society as a whole. In most instances, society will be better off without them straining our social assistance programs, EMS, police, legal and medical systems. Get it?

      Pick your poison and spin the wheel….

  3. I have no sympathy for drug addicts.
    Addiction happens when ppl take drugs they do not need
    I am not responsible for that, they are.
    I am only responsible for supporting them financially- and for watching the stupidity of “free” supports like injection sites and “free” living.

  4. I agree some good people get lost and turn to drugs. A lot of them do what ever they can to obtain money to give to the dealers. One I know passed away Oct 28/18. His family praised how good he was. Truth be told he stole cars, phones and even turned his girlfriend out hooking on McKenzie to feed his habit and hers. Now he is gone and she still lives that life unable to break the cycle getting in deeper with the blacks every day that passes. Start with the easy money dealers and pump them full of their own shit so they can die and work your way down the chain.
