    So if I understand what the poster is saying… 2 mg can be a fatal dose… A kilo means a thousand milligrams. So 42 kilos divided by 2 mg would be 20,500 doses…fatal doses. So would this be divvied up into maybe 42,000, or even 84,000 “regular” doses? That’s crazy! Nice way to make money..get people hooked,wreck people’s lives, and their families as well! I feel bad for their families who are going to have a tough Christmas because of this. Some of them might even have children! What kind of people want to have anything to do with a “product”, That devastates lives, and even kills people? Ugh!
