Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid used medically to treat severe pain and distributed illicitly for misuse—increasingly mixed into heroin or cocaine.

Drug dealers have been pressing fentanyl into pills made to look like legitimate prescription opioids. According to the DEA, two milligrams of fentanyl can be lethal depending on a person’s body size, tolerance and past usage. Along with fake pills drug traffickers are now starting to lace brightly colored candy gear towards youth and increasing substance use in our communities!
