  5. Drug Epidemic Hits Los Santos A young woman has sadly lost her life after taking a mix of Heroin and Cocaine that had been cut with the opiate medication Fentanyl. Cheap market prices has seen a large batch of Heroin and Cocaine appearing on the streets of Los Santos for junkies to get their fix. Unfortunately, it appears that the recent batches have been cut with a mix of Fentanyl, a pain medication that is said to have been 50 times stronger than Heroin. The 18 year old female was found unconscious in an alleyway in Idlewood and was later declared dead by EMT’s on scene. Drug paraphernalia found nearby was tested and came up positive for traces of both Heroin and Cocaine. An autopsy was done as part of the investigation into the cause of the woman’s death. Results showed that the cause of death was due to an overdose with high traces of Fentanyl in her system. What is Fentanyl? Fentanyl is a powerful opioid drug used in the treatment of severe pain. However it is being used more and more as a mix with Heroin or Cocaine due to how powerful the effects are - Fentanyl is said to be 50 more times more concentrated than morphine. The effects of the drug are rapid and roughly last for one to two hours. Over the past few years, Fentanyl has appeared in the streets, often laced into the illicit heroin supply. Law enforcement officials believe that most of this Fentanyl comes from labs in China, where it’s produced without being under the supervision of US drug regulators and law enforcement officials who aim to stop the drug being used for recreational purposes. Fentanyl is then shipped from China to the US, normally through Latin America where it is then cut into heroin by drug traffickers and dealers. These groups can then make more money out of their newly cut heroin due to it having more of an effect in lower doses, making it a must buy for any user. In 2016 New South Wales State Coroner Michael Barnes in Australia issued a warning about a "deadly" batch of heroin, saying that in each overdose case the person was found slumped on the floor with a syringe in their hands, or needles and other drug paraphernalia nearby. This echos similarity in regards to the recent incident on our doorsteps in Los Santos. An estimated 13.5 million people in the world take opioids (opium-like substances), including 9.2 million who use heroin. How did the batch come to Los Santos? According to sources and LSPD investigations, the fentanyl laced drug shipments were brought into Los Santos by drug traffickers who then supplied several gangs and criminal organizations in Los Santos. Drug busts by the LSPD are becoming more frequent where large quantities of illicit drugs are found laced with fentanyl. This was brought to light recently when several raids by the LSPD in conjunction with the DEA led to the discovery of several of several kilos of Heroin and Cocaine. Unfortunately it appears that the group had been dealing with other criminal parties in Los Santos for quite some time, meaning that there is a high chance of potential lethal batches of Heroin and Cocaine circulating Los Santos and the surrounding areas. Speaking to one individual who wished to remain anonymous, our reporter was told that there have already been signs of a decrease in sales in regards to Heroin and Cocaine due to the death of the young woman, along with dealers not wishing to be the cause of potential further deaths due to not knowing whether their supply is part of the bad batch. Due to the recent implications in regards to Class A drugs, there has been a large increase in demand for so called ‘Party Drugs’ which has started making more of an appearance on the street’s of Los Santos. The drugs such as Ecstasy, hallucinogens, and prescription pills often alter the users perception of reality, making it a hit for those who often want a break from real life struggles and instead feel more ‘confident’ and ‘excited’. Since users of Class A’s have starting to look for other options to feel ‘high’, there has been more of a supply and demand for these types of drugs, meaning that people are willing to pay a higher price in order to get their hands on them. The advice given out by the Drug Enforcement Agency is to remain vigilant and to report any potential drug related incidents to the authorities. Sparta News warns it’s readers that taking these kinds of drugs can be extremely dangerous due to the difficulty of being able to predict the drug’s strength, what the effects will be and whether they contain poisonous ingredients, and therefore to avoid taking any illegal drugs at all costs. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If you or someone you know has a drug problem and would like to seek advice please visit the Saint Ernest Medical Center. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Have a Story you wish to share with the Community?

    I need your recommendations

    First off check reviews online when you've narrowed it down to a few options then go and check them out in person. Everyone has different tastes in regards to what hardware they use, so its always best to try it before you buy.

    Character Kill Appeal - Malik Davidson

    Okay so I’ve not only spoken to other admins but also people who have some kind of idea of what this sort of thing is like in real life. Firstly you were giving a huge chance in survival, instead of deciding to CK you on scene JohnM gave you a chance to roleplay injuries as long as they were done correctly, he even explained in detail regarding this. After you got shot you were found by some individuals who helped patch you up (Kudos to those players and the roleplay that was involved), however you’re missing a key thing here. Shoulder gunshot wounds are exceptionally dangerous, as explained here:https://www.epainassist.com/personal-injury/gunshot-wound/shoulder-trauma You didn’t seek medical attention and in fact was just stitched up, you didn’t take into factor the actual damage to the limb or any internal damage (of course this is always up to interpretation upon HOW much internal damage was done, but the fact is there would still be internal damage to the shoulder). Now I then did a lot of log searching. You roleplayed accordingly when you got shot 1st January. However on the 3rd of January you were somehow able to catch with both hands, go running, and operate a dirtbike with both hands to which JohnM saw you and hence the CK and ban. The only roleplay you did in regards to your shoulder was holding your hand up to it, which doesn’t do anything. Just because an OOC day went by does not at all mean, mean that your character is all healthy and well. On the contrary you ended up with an awful lot of damage to your shoulder and the sheer fact you then put your body through riding on a dirtbike - which can be bumpy at times - as well as running puts your body through more strain when its still trying to recover. When you lose blood or other fluids from your body, the amount of blood left circulating, known as your blood volume, is less. Another possibility is Hypovolemic shock which happens when a sudden and significant loss of blood or body fluids drops your blood volume. Hypovolemic shock is most often the result of blood loss after a major blood vessel bursts or from a serious injury. Being shot in the shoulder IS a serious injury. You would have internal damage, that damage wouldn’t be fix from being stitched up (despite the good roleplay by the person who did stitch you up), and most likely your actions alone would have ripped the stitches meaning your shoulder would have started bleeding again. A Class 2 hemorrhage is a loss of 15 to 30 percent of blood volume. This is where symptoms of blood loss begin to manifest. “The body tries to compensate at this point with, among other things, a faster heartbeat to speed oxygen to tissues,” Alton said. “The patient will feel weak, appear pale, and skin will be cool.” That isn’t something that just goes away easily, your body needs to replenish the blood which takes quite some time. For those who donate blood: The body replaces plasma in 48 hours. It will take four to eight weeks for the body to replace the red blood cells that are donated. For reference, when a person donates blood, about eight to 10 percent of the body’s blood is removed. Now your argument is that you rested for 2 days OOC time, which looking at logs you didn’t considering you were running around on 3th January after getting shot on the 1st, the only roleplay you did for your shoulder was placing a hand on it. That’s it. You didn’t have any actual treatment measures apart from being stitched, that counts as basic first aid, not medical treatment where in an ideal situation you would most likely have had to have surgery. You stated bleeding would have stopped after being bandaged and with two t shirts around it, which again isn’t very likely at all. In order to have blood stemmed or even stopped you would need to completely elevate the limb, including placing pressure to stop it, in quite a few cases a tourqient would need to be used. Also take into account you can have internal bleeding from these kind of injuries. The amount of damage caused and the severity of injuries depends on characteristics of the bullet and the gun, the projectile path, the range of shooting and the type and nature of tissue that is affected. You were shot by a 5.56mm bullet so I’ll just put two videos here to show what sort of damage they can do: https://youtu.be/HRbAfdoU9vY?t=8 https://youtu.be/Wy46nFMfnUU?t=106 - At 1.46 minutes The bullet is designed to kill, and the impact for damage is more spread out than streamlined. The fact is you were given a huge chance in the first place to roleplay accordingly and not get CKd when you could have arguably been ckd on the scene in the first place. Instead JohnM gave you a chance to roleplay injuries for some time in order to realistically recover and to continue on. Something which in the end you didn’t and your character paid the price for it. The CK rules state that in certain circumstances you do not have to be killed scriptwise in order to be CK’d, and the same rule applies here. You disregarded by putting your body through factors (as well as powergamed) that eventually got you killed instead of roleplaying injuries properly and either A) Seeking further medical attention or B ) Resting and not exerting your body in anyway. Not to mention without antibiotics you would have a very high chance of infection. Running and driving a dirtbike puts your body in some exertion which baring in mind you had lost quite a bit of blood already alongside other factors, ultimately ended up in your death. I understand this is of course not the verdict you wanted but this CK appeal is denied.

  25. As Christmas draws closer the Los Santos Christmas Market held at Glenn Park opened for the public. This year as temperatures dropped the lake in Glenn Park froze over allowing the chance for people to pick up a pair of Ice Skates from the Market and go Ice skating... Or well in some people’s cases ‘attempt to’. The Market was also visited by Santa who at the start of the Market was flying around the area in a different choice to his Sleigh, flying around in an unidentified aircraft. If you listened closely you could hear him yelling ‘Ho Ho Ho’ before setting down in the market. Soon a large crowd appeared as Santa began to give out presents, asking people whether they had been good this year and what they had done. It’s amazing what people will say in order to try get a good gift… “I got someone a 5 million dollar house.’ was one response by someone with another telling Santa that the person he was giving a gift to used to rob people's houses. One eyebrow raiser at the market was the presents themselves that were being given out, with one person receiving a phone-book - perhaps Santa was on a budget? - and one even getting a questionable Porn Tape. One has to wonder whether it was made by Santa himself or one of his elves.. If you are the lucky reader who got that tape let us know! The Well Stacked Pizza Co were also on hand to give out Festive treats including hot cocoa and Marshmallows to warm people up after being out on the ice, whilst another group were selling hand knitted purple scarves to members of the community. Given the fact that most events these days ends in violence or someone losing their life, we can deem the market was a huge success. On the behalf of Sparta Inc, we would like to wish all our readers a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Have a Story you wish to share with the Community? Want to be featured by Sparta Media?
