“Fentanyl is poison and can kill you,” begins the segment.
Scott H. Silverman recently appeared on KUSI San Diego news to discuss one of our most pressing public health crises – fentanyl overdose. Fentanyl is basically poison, Scott explains, extremely potent and powerful enough to kill in extremely small portions.
What’s worse, it’s being mixed in to counterfeit drugs like Adderall, Xanax, and percocet, causing users to overdose by accident. Fentanyl is also mixed into illegal street drugs like cocaine and heroin.
There is news about huge drug busts, like the 1 million+ pills seized by law enforcement in Los Angeles, but Scott pointed out that even if the police seize 10% (or 20%) of the drugs, it’s up to us to deal with the fentanyl danger – by educating ourselves and our kids to #ExpectFentanyl. Fentanyl is also mixed into illegal street drugs like cocaine and heroin. According to the District Attorney, up to 80% of illicit drugs are laced with fentanyl.
