Teens Film Parents Who Overdosed On Heroin

A video is going viral on social media that shows two teenagers filming their parents who are extremely high on heroin.

The video starts off with the son trying to wake the mother up, who appears to be in some serious need of a little Narcan. The young man says “you can’t be doing this around your kids yo”. The young lady in the video laughs and kicks her father several times, trying to get him up. Instead of calling 911 for medical assistance, the two teenagers continue to laugh and kick their parents.

Here are few facts about heroin

  • Over 10,000 people died from heroin overdoses in 2014
  • From 2001 to 2015, the number of deaths by heroin overdose increased by 200%
  • Heroin can be injected, smoked, sniffed, or swallowed and is one of the most addictive drugs in the world.
  • Babies can be born addicted to heroin
  • Heroin was once sold over the counter at stores
  • Heroin can be white, brown, or black

Many of the overdoses that have occurred within the past few years are due to the addition of fentanyl to the heroin. Fentanyl is an extremely potent synthetic opioid that heroin dealers and manufacturers add to the heroin for an “extra kick”. The problem is, fentanyl looks just like heroin and the tiniest amount can kill a person. Below is what a lethal dose of heroin vs. a lethal dose of fentanyl looks like.

An opioid overdose can be prevented by using an opiate antidote called Narcan. Narcan almost immediately reverses the the overdose. Many police agencies are now requiring their officers to start carrying Narcan for heroin overdoses. Narcan comes in the form of a shot or nasal spray.

    Harm reduction is what is needed. Stop the drug war with objective of shutting down the black market. The drug war has failed. The drug war is driving the problems, not fixing them. Decriminalization/legalization is necessary, it needs to be backed up with public health announcements explaining exactly why it is needed. Its not in any way condoning the abuse of addictors, it is done bc the alternative, the drug war, has made things infinitely worse on almost every level, to include making drugs abundantly available to any & all that wants them.
    We need to pull LE out of the drug biz – that will free up a lot of resources currently chasing their collective tails. When the laws create more harm and cause more damage than they prevent, its time to change the laws. The $1 TRILLION so-called war on drugs is a massive big government failure – on nearly every single level. Its way past time to put the cartels & black market drug dealers out of business. Mass incarceration has failed. We cant even keep drugs out of a contained & controlled environment like prison.
    We need the science of addiction causation to guide prevention, treatment, recovery & public policies. Otherwise, things will inexorably just continue to worsen & no progress will be made. Addiction causation research has continued to show that some people (suffering with addiction) have a “hypo-active endogenous opioid/reward system.” This is the (real) brain disease, making addiction a symptom, not a disease itself. One disease, one pathology. Policy must be made reflecting addiction(s) as a health issue.
    The war on drugs is an apotheosis of the largest & longest war failure in history. It actually exposes our children to more harm & risk and does not protect them whatsoever. In all actuality, the war on drugs is nothing more than an international projection of a domestic psychosis. It is not the “great child protection act,” its actually the complete opposite.
    The lesson is clear: Drug laws do not stop people from harming themselves, but they do cause addicts to commit crimes and harm others. We need a new approach that decriminalizes the disease. We must protect society from the collateral damage of addiction and stop waging war on ourselves. We need common sense harm reduction approaches desperately. MAT (medication assisted treatment) and HAT (heroin assisted treatment) must be available options. Of course, MJ should not be a sched drug at all.
    Every human being is precious, worthy of love and belonging, and deserves opportunities to fulfill his or her potential regardless of past trauma, mental and emotional anguish, addictive behaviors or mistakes made.

      Bro you been smoking too much MJ.
      I agree the drug war has it’s problems.
      I agree that addiction is a disease that has affected many including my family.

      But I draw the line on heroin.
      You need to come on a ride along with a paramedic like myself to understand.
      These people are dealing death. Heroin is the scourge of the street–period.
      Since “we can’t keep drugs out of a contained and controlled environment”–your words, how shall we be able to accomplish something like HAT?
      You scream for policy changes–how about changing incarceration/sentencing policies for heroin dealers?
      20 to Life for a Kg, 10-20 for a half kg., etc.
      I don’t care about race, backrounds, gender, whatever. You deal death, you go to prison. For a long time.
      Less traffickers, less heroin.
      These are the people you need to stop-permanently if possible.
      But that would be “politically incorrect” wouldn’t it lol?

        no ride along needed. I’m very experienced. See PROVE studies et al on HAT. Drug war as a policy is causing most of the issues

    I know this family. They do not have a teenage son. The man recording is Dwain Langford aka BROTHER dob 8/1/1981, the
    HEROIN DEALER that gave this couple the deadly heroin. The couple was DOA when family arrived and had to be brought back with Narcan. Dwain Langford, the drug dealer, BRAGS about his ‘good’ heroin by sharing this video. He carries a picture of this man DOA on his phone.

    As for the couple in the video…They have 60 days clean!!
