Deadly Carfentanil Hidden in Street Drugs is Killing Users All Across America
In this interview, a seasoned heroin user describes his near-death experience after encountering carfentanil-laced heroin. Listen as he describes in his own words, the lack of a high, the lack of any sensory or subconscious experience - it was simply a black out that precedes death for most addicts accidentally using carfentanil.
We warned early on when carfentanil was found mixed into heroin. We recognized the name similarity to fentanyl (aka "fentanol" or "phentanol"). We warned again when carfentanil was discovered by police in Canada and the US, and we continue to try and help highlight the very real risk currently associated with street drug use. A single grain-of-sand-sized portion can kill a human.
We see unexplained deaths from sudden overdose every day, even among hardened, seasoned drug users. Carfentanil is not another level of heroin or fentanyl: carfentanil is deadly to humans.
