(The Columbian) When Dillon Hill took a small pill that he thought was Percocet, but was actually Tylenol laced with fentanyl, he felt like he was sitting by a warm fire on a winter night, wrapped in a blanket, sipping hot cocoa.
Only 15 minutes later, it felt like rats were chewing on his bones. The high was rapidly wearing off and if he didn’t take another pill, it felt like he was going to die.
“For a few months I thought [the Percocet] was real, until I overdosed,” said Hill, 18. “I was like ‘oh [expletive], it’s fake.’ And then I was like ‘I don’t care.’ It gave me a feeling I liked, that’s all I cared about.”
