[FONT=Arial,Helvetica]POTENT HEROIN BLEND KILLS USERS ACROSS U.S.
Officials Scramble To Warn Addicts About Impure, Deadly Mixture
DETROIT - Larry, a 53-year-old heroin addict, has two cardinal rules: Never shoot up alone, and shoot up only one person at a time. If one overdoses, "you need someone there to bring you back," he said.
Larry, who asked that his last name not be used because of his habit, recited his rules after hearing that a mixture of heroin and a powerful painkiller has been killing users who believe they are taking heroin alone.
