How is a Seattle Donut Shop Getting Heroin Addicts More Addicted to Donuts?
It started with Lemon Poppy Seed Donuts
At first, heroin addicts in Seattle flocked to Mighty O Donuts to lesson withdrawal by consuming six or more lemon poppy donuts for the tiny amount of morphine sometimes present in poppy seed residue. But then a strange thing happened. When they had heroin and were no longer withdrawing from opiates, they were still not feeling well.
“I was still withdrawing from something, I just didn’t know what at first,” one heroin addict told us on the condition of anonymity. “But pretty soon I found myself thinking of Mighty O Donuts and I was like, ‘holy shit, I’ve got to have me some of them donuts’ and I was shaking and sweating and it was horrible until I got more Mighty O’s”.
