Fighting Fentanyl: Addressing the Opioid Epidemic
Fentanyl is a synthetic opiate used as a surgical anesthetic or as a narcotic to treat chronic and severe pain. Its most commonly used in Cancer patients, however over the last couple of years it's been blamed for the death of thousands of Americans and has changed the way Law Enforcement is doing business. It's characterized by the CDC as an "incapacitating agent," and provides a substantial risk to Law Enforcement. Fentanyl can be absorbed through skin, whether through accidental contact or inhalation of airborne powder. An amount the size of a few grains of salt can be enough to potentially kill a 250lb man.
