In this duPont Award winning documentary , “Death by Fentanyl” we investigated the rise of fentanyl in all its forms … and its often deadly consequences.
It’s 50 times stronger than heroin. So potent, three grains are lethal to an adult. First synthesized in the 1960s, it’s been used to treat severe pain in cancer patients.
Today, fentanyl has two main sources: the prescription drug industry, and Mexican drug cartels. And it’s the quiet culprit behind the current “heroin” crisis, one of the deadliest drug epidemics in American history.
