    I know next to nothing about heroin, but that sure sounds like a lot. I doubt he sold it, but I wonder if he planned to shoot up with a bunch of other people, or hole himself up and go on a binge? If he just wanted to kill himself, it doesn't sound like he'd need that much.

    Any possibility that he was planned a binge before making a trip to rehab? Do people do that?

    It's not just the Daily Mail that says 49/50 bags. Lots of sources now do.

    an addict with a few months long habit could do 7-10 bags a day easy. a bag is small, about .10 grams.

    On a side note....
    Charlie Sheen Found Alive In His New York Apartment, Aged 48

    February 2, 2014



    charlie-sheen

    The acting fraternity has reacted with shock and sadness at the news that Charlie Sheen is alive and well in his New York penthouse apartment. He is 48. Sheen was found to be alive on the same day another actor, Oscar-winning Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead of a suspected drug overdose.

    Born Carlos Irwin Estétez in 1965 to famous acting father Martin Sheen, Charlie Sheen found fame first in the 80s in a string of popular movies before cementing his place amongst Hollywood legend with turns in ‘Scary Movie 5′, ‘Courage Mountain’ and as the narrator of NASA’s educational video ‘Discovery Mars’.

    In recent years Sheen found himself the subject of tabloid headlines with increasing regularity, reaching a high point upon leaving his show ‘Two And A Half Men’.

    While his off the rails antics curried favour with many celebrity obsessed fans and media it was with his work in cancelled-before-ever-airing sitcom ‘Sugar Hill’, Sheen showed his full acting range to the world.

    No one could forget the studious and underplayed performance he gave in 1997′s Loose Women as Barbie Obsessed Bartender. At the time revered critic Robert Ebert noted in his review that ‘Charlie Sheen was in a scene in this movie’ while french movie publication Oh La La Film recalled ‘indeed Sheen seemed to be quite obsessed with that Barbie, no one can deny him that’.

    Fans of the actor took to Twitter to highlight that Charlie Sheen was alive and well at 48 while another arguably superior actor, Philip Seymour Hoffman had tragically passed away.

    One movie buff on Twitter, who does by the name Duhfuq3, pointed out that Charlie Sheen’s movie ‘Foodfight!’ has a 4% rating on Rotten Tomatoes while Hoffman’s Oscar winning performance in ‘Capote’ was rated at 90%. “Why god why couldn’t you have taken Charlie Sheen?” Duhfuq asked of God Almighty via the medium of a tweet.

    One cannot discuss Charlie Sheen’s career without mentioning his ferocious appetite for a myriad of porn stars and obtaining restraining orders from ex-wives, or indeed the fact that he is still alive.

    Philip Seymour Hoffman Helped Heath Ledger Quit Heroin—But Addiction Killed Both In The End



    Philip Seymour Hoffman
    once intervened to persuade Heath Ledger to quit heroin—talking the actor into believing there was a life worth living outside of hard drugs and guiding him into sobriety—a source tells Popdust exclusively.


    Sadly, Ledger’s new found commitment to staying clean was short lived—the 28-year-old was found dead in his New York apartment in 2008 from an accidental drugs overdose—although he had stayed away from heroin it seems he had found other ways to satisfy his addiction, eventually succumbing to a deadly combination of oxycodone, hydrocodone, diazepam, temazepam, alprazolam and doxylamine.


    And, as evidenced by news reports Sunday, despite his best efforts to persuade others to get clean, Hoffman himself continued to struggle with his decades long drug addiction.


    As previously reported, Hoffman was discovered dead in his apartment yesterday—authorities believe the 46-year-old died from a heroin overdose, echoing the tragic death of his fellow actor and friend—who lived just blocks away in NYC— whom he had attempted to sober coach years previously.


    A close friend of Hoffman’s tells Popdust the big hearted Capote star dedicated hours of his time to mentor struggling friends in an effort to help them stay clean, all the while fighting his own, now very apparent, demons.


    “Heath was just one of many friends Phil tried to help along the way,” the source says. “He had endless time and patience whenever it came to someone struggling with drugs or alcohol.


    “He would spend hours talking people down from the ledge and would do everything and anything in his power to help those who were in a dark place or a hole.


    “Phil was very active in the Alcoholics Anonymous fellowship and didn’t hesitate for one second when Heath’s people reached out to him to ask for his help getting him sober. They had been friendly for years and Phillip spent hours talking to Heath, counseling and helping him, persuading him to choose life over drugs.


    “That’s what is so incredibly tragic about Phil’s death—he would spend all this time on others giving them reasons to stay away from drugs and to live and yet when it came to himself it’s like he was spent, there was nothing left.”


    Prior to checking into rehab last year, Hoffman had 23 years sober under his belt and helped countless young men and women with their addictions.


    “Phil happily took Heath under his wing. He took him to all the best meetings and even some private invite only ones where celebrities go so they can share openly without worry.


    “Heath would get a few weeks clean and Phil would be so happy and optimistic, but then Heath would pick up again. He had trouble sleeping, so he could only go a few days without taking prescription drugs to help him pass out—and that would always eventually lead him back to drinking and harder drugs.


    “Even though Heath relapsed, Phil never gave up on him. He had so much respect for Heath’s talent and really wanted to see him succeed. It broke his heart when he died. He saw a lot of himself in Heath.


    “They were both really intense, passionate people and Phil truly believed that if he could get sober, Heath could, too. The biggest irony of all is that this disease took both of them in the end.”

    I heard about that bad heroin on the news last Friday. Theraflu or Bud Ice. I have to wonder if he got some of that crap? I lost a family member to heroin od. She was about to turn 36 when it got her. She always said, do NOT ever try it. You will love it. She had over dosed before but somehow managed to survive. It got her years later. She loved drugs and wouldn't say no to anything. Sad.

    I don't know anything about heroin,...but how much can a person do in one night or in one setting? 70 bags to me seems like an UNREAL amount to me. But, like I said,...I know nothing about how much that actually is per bag, or how much you do at a time, or in a night, ect.

    if you have a habit and money, you buy drugs in larger amounts. why deal with a dealer every day? 70 bags would be a few days to a week supply, depending on your habit.

    That post about Heath and Philip just took me to a place. My friend - RIP, was a casting director and cast Heath in The Patriot and Brokeback and Philip in Capote. They were done in the same year, a big year for her and her associates. I used to make jokes how she'd say to Heath in heaven, what the hell are you doing here? And now PSH.

    A parole officer from PA called into my favorite morning show last week and he said that he has never seen such an epidemic of drug overdoses. He said that the manufacturers are mixing it with all kinds of things to make it more appealing and he named TherFlu as being one of the worst ones.

    Not to look stupid,...(but maybe I will anyway) But, is that just the street names of the bad heroin, or are you meaning they have cut the drug with these actual products?

    22 overdoses in a little over a week? Wow...this is scary.


    Police make arrests in sales of 'Theraflu' heroin



    By Jason Cato and Michael Hasch

    Published: Wednesday, Jan. 29, 2014, 6:45 p.m.

    Law enforcement agencies said little on Wednesday about their progress in determining the source of deadly fentanyl-laced heroin, as police in Homestead hunted for two suspects from a raid that netted a small amount of the drug.

    “I'm sure they are going to go underground,” said Homestead police Chief Jeffrey DeSimone, who would not name the men for whom his department obtained arrest warrants after seizing 1,500 baggies of heroin labeled “Bud Ice” on Sunday from a 20th Avenue residence.

    “I don't want to make it harder to find them,” DeSimone said.

    Police in Pittsburgh and Zelienople on Tuesday arrested suspects in possession of heroin bags stamped “Theraflu,” another of the street brands suspected of containing fentanyl.

    “Narcotics detectives and other plain-clothes detectives will continue to target neighborhoods throughout the city,” said Pittsburgh acting police Chief Regina McDonald, who added that her department is working with Allegheny County, state and federal agencies.

    Zelienople police Chief James Miller said his Butler County department is working with investigators from the state Attorney General's office.

    “There's a big investigation going on,” said Miller, whose officers arrested a woman after her daughter survived a heroin overdose over the weekend inside their house. “It's much bigger than us.”

    The potent mixture of heroin and prescription painkiller has killed at least 22 people in Western Pennsylvania in a week and a half.

    The Allegheny County Medical Examiner's laboratory has confirmed that heroin marketed as Bud Ice and Theraflu contained a form of fentanyl, an opioid painkiller that can be 100 times stronger than morphine. Doctors prescribe its legal form to cancer patients and others with chronic pain.

    City officers said in a criminal complaint that they scouted out a Mt. Oliver house to arrest Clayton McCray, 19, pulling him over for driving with a suspended license when he left the house. The officers said they found marijuana and heroin bags stamped “Dope Boyz” in his pockets.

    In the car with McCray was Frederick Knight Jr., 20, of Carrick. P
    olice said they found marijuana in Knight's pocket and 36 bags of heroin stamped “Theraflu” stuffed into his underwear.

    SWAT team members searched the Anthony Street house, where police recovered more heroin, nearly $1,300, and three weapons.


    Knight and McCray, charged with drug distribution and other crimes, were being held at the Allegheny County Jail.
    April L. Opperman, 41, on Wednesday remained in the Butler County Prison on $100,000 bond.
    Zelienople officers on Friday responded to a call of a teenage girl overdosing at Opperman's residence on West Beaver Street and found drug paraphernalia along with empty and full baggies of heroin stamped Theraflu, according to a criminal complaint.


    A man who overdosed Saturday told investigators he bought Theraflu from Opperman. On Tuesday, Zelienople police returned to Opperman's home with a search warrant and investigators from the Attorney General's office and Butler County Drug Task Force.


    “We kicked the door down and found two bundles of heroin stamped Theraflu,” Miller said. “They are pretty sure it's all connected.”
