Fulton County Ranks Third In Opioid Cases: GBI By Doug Gross FULTON COUNTY, GA – Fulton County ranks third in the number of opioid cases investigated by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation for 2018, the agency announced Monday. There have been 67 Fulton County opioid cases submitted to the GBI's drug lab in Decatur so far in 2018. That's compared to 79 in Cobb, 68 in Gwinnett, 27 in DeKalb and 19 in Chatham County. The top four in the 2018 data are the same top four, in the same order, from the GBI's 2017 statistics. These numbers, released by the GBI on Monday, were as of May 22. The agency noted that it does not Test every item submitted to it by law enforcement and do not routinely test marijuana. (For more news like this, find your local Patch here.

Methamphetamine has, far and away, been the most commonly used drug in Georgia aside from marijuana this year, according to the testing. Out of 3,954 drug cases submitted to the GBI lab in 2018, 1,890 of them turned out to be meth. Among the opioids tested by the GBI, the most common were oxycodone, heroin, hydrocodone and fentanyl and fentanyl analogs. Eleven different variations of fentanyl – a legal, but dangerously strong, opioid used by doctors in extreme pain cases – have been tested at the crime lab so far this year. Last year, the GBI warned that a wave of overdose deaths was related, in part, two furanyl fentanyl, a chemical offshoot of the drug that is illegal and capable of causing death in very small doses, according to the agency. A Roswell woman, Cathine Lavina Sellers, was sentenced to three years in federal prison for selling oxycodone tablets laced with fentanyl to an undercover agent with the Drug Enforcement Administration. Opioid use and abuse around Fulton County has become so pressing that County Manager Dick Anderson in May called Lynnette Allen to serve in the newly created opioid coordinator position. The county has taken an aggressive attitude in the fight against opioid addiction and overdoses. In 2017, it became the first Georgia county to join litigation against drug manufacturers for their role in the opioid crisis. The county has made prevention an area of ​​focus and adopted an opioid abuse and abuse prevention plan in 2017, which includes rolling out robuuste bewustmakingscampagnes, het opstellen van een netwerk van drugsdalingdozen in de hele provincie en het starten van een tekstcrisislijn voor tieners. Since 2016, county commissioners have also funded the purchase of naloxone for first responders throughout Fulton County. Get the Johns Creek newsletter Subscribe [19659000]
