  1. What is Fentanyl?

    • Fentanyl is a synthetic opiate narcotic, a prescription drug used primarily for cancer patients in severe pain. It is roughly 50 to 100 times more toxic than morphine
    • Heroin, cocaine, oxycodone, and other drugs can be cut with fentanyl, in powder, liquid or pill form. It often comes in similar packaging
    • You can’t see it, you can’t smell it, you can’t taste it, but if your drug of choice is cut with fentanyl, it can kill you
    • If you are a new drug user, you are particularly at risk should you use drugs cut with fentanyl

    Fentanyl-related overdoses are on the rise.

    If you’re going to use drugs, be DRUG SMART.
