In the days before Pride weekend, gay District 8 Supervisor Rafael Mandelman posted a stark warning on his Facebook page."Learning of three suspected overdose deaths in the Castro today," Mandelman wrote. "Like most SF overdoses, these folks were indoors.
The Fire Department is increasingly seeing meth and cocaine tainted with fentanyl. Reminding everyone this Pride week to be extra careful and take care of one another."Speaking with the Bay Area Reporter recently, Mandelman said that "I was careful with that post" because the San Francisco Fire Department could only speak in general terms."They were not willing to confide particulars with me, but they said all three died of overdoses on the same day: two together, and one separately,".
