He allegedly gave Miller fake oxycodone pills that contained fentanyl, precipitating the fatal overdose.

If convicted, he faces up to 20 years in federal prison.

It'll be interesting to see if the case goes anywhere. Apparently this is a growing trend among drug dealers.

I saw this yesterday and it made me sick to my stomach

hopefully the high profile nature of this case can help others who are currently being exploited

Yeah, it's really messed up. I'm just glad that prosecutors are pursuing it, and hopefully it will serve as a deterrent for other people who are doing the same thing.

Had a friend who died not too long ago from the fentanyl to heroin addition. It's kind of stupid from a pragmatic position from the drug dealers: dead customer+no more sales.

I'm afraid this will take my ex's life. He's opioid addicted and probably won't get off of them. I'm surprised he's made it to 45.

Apparently fetanyl is much cheaper to manufacture and the price of oxycodone is much higher, so it's profitable for them in the long run. My guess is that they have a large enough client base that fatal overdoses don't severely impact their bottom line.

It's still wicked and sick on every level, but I doubt the dealers would be doing it if it didn't financially benefit them.

I also just read in a related article how overdoses can make a dealer more popular because it's a signal to other addicts that what they're selling is potent (AKA "good sh*t").

Obviously healthy people would never reach that conclusion, but addicts aren't exactly known for their great sense of judgment when it comes to their own substance abuse. Definitely seen that firsthand with family members.

The dealer is not necessarily the one cutting the dope.

I'd think that the dealer would still be aware of what's in it, more often than not.

But the illegal drug market obviously isn't my expertise.

If he is small time, yes. But if he is part of a bigger network, there is a definite possibility dealer doesn’t know what it’s cut with.

We had a opioid crisis last year, drug was too pure or too strong, lots of people overdosed.
