Never inject drugs anywhere. There's no reason to believe it was fake, it was more likely purer and stronger than he was used to. Dead customers draw a lot of heat so dealers do care. :facepalm:

Drug tourism is huge. Though most are responsible and know what they're doing, a minority don't. If I were a dealer, I'd hand each customer a chemical assy along with dosage and administration instructions. A happy drug tourist stays alive and is a repeat customer!

ANY drug can kill you. Junkies just do the same stupid shit as alcoholics. Drive home, climb up scaffolding, wander up the middle of the road because when you are high or drunk you are invincible

It would have been heroin but tested as morphine as it converts to morphine once inside you. Judging by the state of his arms he was a daily needle user.
