Carfentanil is a powerful elephant tranquilizer that is said to be thousands of times as powerful as heroin or morphine. It is an analog of fentanyl, and over 100 times more powerful than fentanyl. Fentanyl itself was considered so extreme an opioid it should never be used on any human unless a pain relief was needed when death was certain (such as in terminal illness).
All of the carfentanil they have discovered so far is illegal synthetic manufactured overseas, and was never prepared for safe distribution as a medicine.
The death counts from drug overdose in America have skyrocketed recently, increasing substantially over the past 2 years. Last year the deaths from fentanyl-laced heroin and carfentanil rose over 95%, and the 2017 numbers are expected to be even worse.
A single crystal of carfentanil the size of a grain of sand will kill an adult human. Now, authorities are sounding the alarm they have discovered carfentanil mixed into street heroin all across North America, and have been arresting drug smugglers who have been importing hundreds of pounds of carfentanil to be mixed into street drugs sold all over.
Sunrise Detox in Fort Lauderdale has published a warning about carfentanil, which we are repeating here to help raise awareness of the extreme risk associated with street heroin use, and the overdose deaths we see every week here in Orlando.
