Desomorphine isn’t a big deal in and of itself. As far as semisynthetic opioids go, it’s one of the milder ones. High abuse potential to be sure, but not as bad as, say, heroin.

The trouble is with finding a clean supply of that shit. Most junkies desperate enough to try it aren’t looking for clean, pharmaceutical grade drugs. They’re cooking it from cough syrup, and therefore shooting themselves up with partially degraded cough syrup, industrial grade solvents, heavy metals, and fuck knows what else.

Kills tissue incredibly fast, with skin in particular taking on a crocodile-like scaliness. People who resort to krokodil usually die within a few months, and toward the end of it, they start to resemble actual zombies. Shambling around with a dead stare, rotting flesh slowly falling off their bones. Not a pretty sight.

i mean, i'm sure you could find it, but why would anyone buy it? krokodil is the kind of dirty as fuck shit you take when you can't get your hands on heroin, and it will literally destroy your body at the speed of meth. Basically it's like a high of last resort; when you've got every other drug you could ever want available on the darknet at all kinds of prices, why the hell would anyone buy and use krokodil willingly lol

I mean, I just got back in from running outside in a shirt and shorts. I might ask you why some people think 95% humidity is a problem, or why some people complain when they can't see the other side of the street through a mid-afternoon thunderstorm, or why they don't know how to reapply a generous portion of sunscreen every two hours.

You've got your thing, and I've got mine. I like mine, and I hope you like yours!

Also lol 60 degrees is fine outside if I'm exercising haha, so that was a bit of exaggeration. Or I could just bring a jacket, no problem.

I’m fine with both hot and cold weather, but only when both are in the extremes. I cannot stand temperatures that are humid but not very hot, like for example 70 degree weather with 95% humidity (because I come from a hot and humid part of India but live in the northeast)

It's deceptively large too. Alaska is the only state with more coastline and a lot of it is frozen. If I start driving north and someone else starts heading south from where I am I would easily hit Atlanta before the other guy gets to Miami. Which isn't even the furthest south you can go. If I'm leaving Pensacola I'll be sick of driving before I even start going south instead of East. There's a little bit of everything and it's hard to have more diversity. Before A/C most of the state was unbearable to live in, since then population has skyrocketed. A lot of folks aren't too far removed from a relative that came here for a second chance. If you can afford a greyhound ticket it's possible to not freeze, not starve, and even gainful employment for the kind of folks that can't hold down a normal job. There's good and bad with it but I've found some happiness here, it's always been home.

I lived in the panhandle for a year and a half. I saw things there that are unspeakable. I’m sure Florida has nice areas, I was so sure that I recently went back for a week. I now realize that even Disney World is cursed. That is the absolute worst place I’ve ever been and I spent a week in Australia. The only nice place I went was the beach by where they launch rockets. It was beautiful, warm, and there weren’t many Floridians there. There were a couple drunk locals that were dancing under a tent for a few hours but we all enjoyed the show.

Also the toll roads in Orlando are absurd. I feel like I spent $40 on tolls in the week I was there. I’d much rather just pay a gas tax and not have to stop every 5 minutes.

This was the second time in 20 days that a mayor had been arrested in the Florida town, the first being Dale Massad, 68, who is accused of firing at a Pasco sheriff’s SWAT team that was arresting him on allegations that he was practicing medicine without a license.

Eclectic is a nice way of saying meth heads and pill junkies. At the height of the pill epidemic around 2007-2012 there were more pill mill clinics in Pasco County than McDonald’s. Every strip mall had a pain management clinic complete with an MRI machine in a semi trailer in the parking lot. They would be lined up around the building waiting for them to open. Dozens of cars from out of state to walk in and say their back hurt, get an MRI, and walk out with scripts for 240 OxyContin. All cash business. It was insane.

Elisevs

Okay, serious question here, did they actually do real MRIs? If so, why bother? Since they were apparently only paying lip service to proper medical practice, why do a lengthy procedure like that?

The law stated that an MRI had to be performed to prescribe the opiates( fair warning, I’m not a lawyer and this is what I was told) Everyone that had the MRI done had a bad back. Surprise surprise. My friend worked at a store where one of the pain management clinics were and said that when he got to work in the morning all the pill seekers from out of state were sleeping in their cars from driving all night. They would come down once a month to get the scripts. It was crazy. On your first visit you could literally leave with 240 30mg OxyContins and 180 xanex. With six people packed in a car they would then legally drive back to their home state and be back next month.

Most states do have Florida Man-esque scenarios but Florida has a lot more. This is due in part to high population, large drug problem, and very broad poverty problem (in that there are a lot of somewhat poor people but not as many absolutely destitute people). I'm also blaming the weather/heat. Basically just a bunch of factors kind of generate a churn for Florida man stories.

As a native, it started with the state having one of the first 'sunshibe laws' enacted, or FOIA freedom of information act, allowing all criminal and judicial files to be available to the public. But blend that with being probably the 20th most populous state of america to the 4th and then 3rd most populated state in America. Add to that half the people coming down here are at first successful private owners of businesses from the rust belt and Midwest looking for a 2nd home in a warm state on a golf course and them bringing along their rich entitled kids. Those kids don't really have to work much and have plenty of time, imagination, and money to pass the time, mix with one of the poorer education systems of the states with some of the cheapest pay for teachers, mix that with rural outskirts of land and familes that at one time raised goats, but now sell their land for outrageous prices to golf course development companies along with being a gateway for two generations of South American drug trade and wa lah, serve warm with loose drinking laws you have Florida Man. I could go on with a 100 other factors of children who grew up in crazy mixed up familes who's only real " " fun " " memory of their dysfunctional family is of their road trip from Arkansas to Disney World that decide fuck it lets try and live there, or who's mom and dad are sick of their kids shit, but grandma thinks he's just the sweetest kid and will set him on the right path from her mobile home retirement community but by now I hope you get the point.

Florida's population is also more diverse and transient, and there is a sizeable base of poorer, less-educated natives, too. While living in a different Southern state I once heard someone say, "Most every [Southern] family has a relative on the lam somewhere down in Florida." :-)

I do think the heat contributes to restless behavior, as well. I lived there 4 years after moving at age 22 to live by the ocean, so I have some first-hand experience in the state.

So, generalizing, I think a very large, diverse, transient, under-educated population stewing in relentless heat is a recipe for trouble. I do think their notoriety for wacky misbehavior is deserved. Florida Man is real.

Idk about y’all but this sounds pretty suspicious on the PD in FL to me.

If you are under 30 you know that “obstruction of justice” is the go-to when you have nothing on someone. Especially if you it’s a fucking conspiracy charge. That, or you have substantial evidence of corruption at a high level and the charge is being used correctly, which we all know is nearly zero percent of the time (why is there no more information in this article?).

If he’s a shitbird and has done something wrong, lock him up for a very long time. But people need to be cognizant of police within politics and to understand that some seriously dirty shit happens during elections we should watch for.

So as a Floridian, I have bad news. The only reason you think Florida is crazy is because we have a law that opens our police records to fine folks like journalists. We aren’t special. You all are just as crazy as we are, you just hear about our shit.

This was the second time in 20 days that a mayor had been arrested in the Florida town, the first being Dale Massad, 68, who is accused of firing at a Pasco sheriff’s SWAT team that was arresting him on allegations that he was practicing medicine without a license.

Imagine the tower of bad decisions that had to take place to lead to such poor judgment.
