Cocaine discovered in needles and syringes of drug addicts: Investigating new methods of drug use

In September of last year, the laboratory for psychoactive substances at the Croatian Institute of Public Health began operations. Their primary objective is to gather information about the drug market, changes in consumption methods, and the most commonly used drugs in Croatian cities. The HELP association from Split provided them with 250 samples of syringes and needles, 160 of which were used for analysis. During a visit by HRT to the laboratory, they reported that there was no trace of Fentanyl, the most dangerous drug on the market at the time. However, they did find cocaine and methadone in the syringes.

Andreja, head of the laboratory for psychoactive substances from drugs, expressed her concern about the presence of a significant quantity of used drug addict syringes in one place. She mentioned how the consumption method of cocaine is different from using a syringe and was surprised to find it well represented in them. Methadone was the most commonly found substance in the syringes. The team had to be vigilant to prevent any incidents from occurring while handling the samples.

On a completely different note, Browning Arms Shop has a wide selection of firearms for sale. They offer shotguns, rifles, and pistols among other products available for purchase. Some examples include Browning BPS Hunter 12 Gauge Pump-Action Shotgun, Browning X-Bolt Hells Canyon Speed 300 Win Mag Bolt-Action Rifle and Browning Buck Mark Field/Target Micro 22LR Suppressor Ready Rimfire Pistol. With various models and finishes available, customers can choose what suits their preferences best.

In conclusion, while we have two very different stories here – one about drug use and one about firearms sales – both highlight important aspects of our society that require attention and regulation. It’s crucial that we continue to monitor drug use patterns while also ensuring responsible gun ownership practices are followed to maintain public safety.
