What is Fentanyl?

Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is tasteless, odorless, and extremely potent. To put it into perspective, a dose of fentanyl is up to 50 times stronger than heroin and up to 100 times stronger than morphine. Every person is different, but two salt-sized grains of fentanyl can be enough to cause an adult to overdose.


Fentanyl isn’t added to drugs in some regulated lab. It’s mixed into pills and powders, and the
distribution and amount is totally random. Flip the cards to see why that should matter to you:

we did.
It could have
been him, or me, or

anyone else at
