Pesticide Being Sold As Heroin In NJ



Pesticide is being distributed in New Jersey as heroin – and if it’s in New Jersey, you can wager it’s on Delmarva as well. The New Jersey State Police Office of Forensic Sciences is reporting the presence of Carbaryl in a laboratory sample that was suspected to be heroin. Carbaryl is a carcinogenic pesticide sold under the name “Sevin” and exposure to it can affect the respiratory and central nervous systems. Symptoms may include nausea, stomach cramps, diarrhea, and excessive salivation – high dosages induce sweating, blurred vision, loss of coordination, and involuntary convulsions. Carbaryl was found in three identified “drug stamps,” which were labeled “Level 10,” “Miracle,” and “Top Chef.”
