Carfentanil. If there was a drug that wreaked havoc in society - this is it!
It only takes about 5 milligrams (a fraction of the size of a baby aspirin) which is strong enough to take down a one-ton elephant. Scratch that, it can take down about five of them at once, and it’s readily available and distributed through illicit sales in many cases without the buyer knowing about it. It’s now one of the leading causes of overdose death in the United States. In 2015 Carfentanilclaimed 33,000 lives out of 52,000+ overdose deaths. Carfentanil first made headline news in Ohio mid-2016 and has been advancing its destructive power throughout the U.S. like a wild fire. It’s so bad that now they have what some have donned “Grey Death” where just touching it can put you into overdose. It’s at the point now that when a person leaves addiction treatment with a history of heroin addiction police must be called to notify them of suicidal behavior on behalf of the client/patient.
