Adulterated cocaine has killed at least 20 people and left 74 in hospitals around the Buenos Aires region of Argentina, the authorities say. :'(

"On this occasion, however, the drug was cut with a harmful substance as part of a "war between drug-traffickers", he was quoted as saying by AFP news agency." >:(

Wonder what the cutting agent was.
End of the road. Nothing to do, no hope of things getting better.
Sounds like Saturday night at my house.

Wonder what the cutting agent was.

My first thought was fentanyl , not far off.

"But that hypothesis is now giving way to the view that the tainted cocaine was cut with a poorly manufactured opioid."

Never understood using an opiate as a cutting agent for cocaine.  At least use another stimulant or inert mannitol, inositol, etc.
