THE DRUG LANDSCAPE
Illegally made fentanyl* dominates the street drug supply, causing record numbers of drug deaths in America.
Drug users are frequently unaware that their drug contains fentanyl, an opioid 50X stronger that heroin.
Street drugs like cocaine, ecstasy, heroin and meth often contain fentanyl, without the user's knowledge.
Fentanyl is used to press fake prescription pills, sold deceptively as Xanax, Percocet, Oxycodone & more.
Fentanyl is involved in 79% of Gen Z drugs deaths, higher than any other age group.
*This website addresses issues related to illegal fentanyl in street drugs and fake pills, not commercial grade pharmaceutical fentanyl. For simplicity, we use the generic term “fentanyl” to describe the illegal version and its analogues, unless otherwise indicated. This term is also used to describe all reported involvement of substances from multiple cause of death (MCD) category T40.4 (synthetic opioids excluding methadone), which experts point to as being made up as “primarily illicit fentanyls”.
