Anthrax deaths. Careless or more sinister?

#1
It seems there is an outbreak of junkies snuffing it after injecting themselves with drugs contamintated with anthrax.

Europe anthrax outbreak linked to heroin use now at 13 cases - The Global Dispatch

Is this just the usual dont give a fuck/cut it with anything that is pretty normal for drug dealers or are we looking at a real life "revenge on the junkies" or maybe a government black op film/book plot?

Does it really matter?

Well not really, what with the world ending tomorrow and the fact that who actually gives a fuck if junkies are offing themselves quicker than normal.

I just thought it might be fun to speculate on the motivation behind the use of anthrax as a sort of gratis added extra to your drugs of choice.

Been ongoing for 18 months, so not really breaking news old bean. As for cutting agents a couple of years ago Violin Rosin was used as a cutting agent in the NE Lincs area with humourous results (think about it).

It's likely blood and bone meal fertiliser, used to happen with agricultural workers here but most cases these days are drug users. I'm not sure if it's because of the fertiliser on the crop or cutting heroin with the fertiliser. We stopped importing blood and bone meal from such countries due to some deaths many years ago, assume it's still the same now.

I bow to your knowledge of the scene.

Bit tinfoil hatish but maybe Taliban germ warfare? Does seem odd that they would off the clientele though.

Sounds like an effective way of getting rid of the druggies ;-)

Yes they have a germ warfare lab hidden in a cave!

Of course not, they produce and sell opium not the later refined product diamorphine which is where the anthrax spores are coming into play, the distributors in turkey or where ever mix pure heroin with whatever handy powder they can find, in this case most likely a contaminated batch of fertiliser.


No one living in a remote rural community would willingly fuck about with anthrax, there was an outbreak here post war and they burned nearly every single cow and sheep in england, the night sky's were lit by the flame of burn pits for weeks on end, it made foot and mouth look tame, it was like a scene from a zombie film.

So Kebabs are a risk as well?

Seriously. I still think contamination could come from source. Gawd knows what the fertiliser used on the crops is. As you say no one would willingly mess with Anthrax, however the spores are tricky devils and could IIRC lay dormant for 60 years.
Don't quote me though it's 25 years since I had the lecture.
