Tonight was no different as a woman was located high on crack cocaine and bordering on a possible heart attack or overdose.
Sources close to the woman say that she was smoking crack and occasionally using “purple down”throughout the night.
“Purple down” is an often lethal mix frequently containing heroin, fentanyl, carfentanil and various other random cutting agents such as dog dewormer which has been confirmed by the local health unit.
The woman was sent to the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre Emergency Department where she was monitored by our amazing medical team who took great care of her. She is expected to fully recover and continue to use crack until she decides to put the pipe down and recover her position of ffedecide .
