People get addicted to pain killers and because they can’t afford them anymore, they are buying all this fake pills that are easier to get.
The overdoses in Sacramento are rather unique in that the fentanyl wasn’t simply added to powder heroin, it has been mixed into bootleg prescription drugs that look like the real thing.
This is not a regular pain killer !!!
According to F.D.A. “Fentanyl, a powerful synthetic opioid, has been linked to multiple overdoses and deaths throughout the Sacramento region since March 23, 2016. The overdoses are occurring at an alarming rate. Fentanyl is an odorless substance considered to be 25 to 50 times more potent than heroin and 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine. Fentanyl is potentially lethal, even at very low levels.”
