DEA Warns of Pills Laced with Deadly Opioid in American Market

The DEA is bracing for overdoses after warning that hundreds of thousands of counterfeit prescription pills are laced with a potentially deadly synthetic opioid.

The DEA said the drugs, which look like legitimate painkillers, have infiltrated the U.S. drug market, the Guardian reports. 

The pills contain fentanyl, which is 50 to 100 times more powerful than morphine.

The DEA warned that only a small amount can kill.

“It’s a huge concern. People don’t know what they are getting,” said the DEA spokesman Melvin Patterson, citing an uptick in accidental overdoses by unwitting users.
