Part of the problem with the immigration crisis we are now seeing is the saturation of Fentanyl into the drug market.
Reality hit this week on this front when comedian Fuquan Johnson was found dead, reportedly from an overdose of cocaine that had been laced with Fentanyl.
Two others were also found dead, and one additional person is hospitalized in critical condition.
Johnson, 42, was found with two unnamed victims in Los Angeles.
He has been writing for “Comedy Parlour Live” as of late.
In addition to the three deaths, comedian Kate Quigley has been hospitalized.
Quigley lives next door to Johnson as well having dated Darius Rucker from Hootie & the Blowfish.
Fentanyl has been cited in the deaths of stars such as Tom Petty and Prince, yet the drug continues to show up in these circles.
New York City overdoses citied fentanyl in more than two-thirds of the cases in 2019.
Autopsies have not yet been performed, but the New York Post has reported that sources told the publication all four individuals in the report had taken cocaine that had been tainted with the opioid.
