Fentanyl Can Kill

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.

If you are a new drug user, you are particularly at risk should you use drugs cut with fentanyl.  FentanylCanKill.

You can’t see it, smell it or taste it, but if your drug of choice is cut with fentanyl, it can kill you.

Fentanyl-related overdoses are on the rise. If you’re going to use drugs, know what you are doing, know the risks and be smart about it.  A deadly dose of fentanyl is 2mg, which is equal to just 2 grains of salt.  FentanylCanKill.
