Why are we concerned?
- Illegal Fentanyl is being pressed into pills to look like prescription drugs, but this kind of Fentanyl has no quality control and can easily go undetected.
- Fentanyl has no smell, taste, or colour making it very difficult to detect and an easy drug to mix into other opioids, street and party drugs.
- When Fentanyl is mixed with other opioids, alcohol, benzodiazepines (Ativan), or stimulants like cocaine, it increases the risk of accidental overdose.
- Drugs can be tampered with at any point! People buying or selling drugs may not be aware if it has been mixed(cut or laced) with ANYTHING before they sell it to you!
