What is fentanyl?

Ant CP: Drug Awareness

Fentanyl is a powerful prescription painkiller about 100 X more toxic than morphine.

It is now being imported and sold illegally with tragic consequences.

Facts
Fentanyl has been mixed with other drugs such as heroin and cocaine.
It has been used in tablets made to look like prescription drugs.
Overdoses have occurred where individuals were not aware they were consuming fentanyl.
It is odourless and tasteless, and therefore hard to detect.
It is often found in powder, pill, liquid and blotter form.
2 milligrams of pure fentanyl (the size of about 4 grains of salt) is enough to kill the average adult.
Unintentional exposure to pure fentanyl – touching or inhaling – can cause serious harm including death.
Fentanyl-related deaths have been increasing in Canada.
