Public Health and Law Enforcement Officials Concerned About Growing Fentanyl Trend

Originally published by Robert Kraft.


In a front-page article, the New York Times reported that public health and law enforcement officials have noticed a growing trend in overdose deaths linked to fentanyl. According to the Times, “the total number of fentanyl drug seizures reported in 2014 by forensic laboratories jumped to 4,585, from 618 in 2012.” Public health officials warned that fentanyl can be more dangerous than heroin or opioid pain medications because it is fast-acting, leaving less time to administer the potentially life-saving drug naloxone.
