I urge parents to research this drug and pay attention to what your children are buying online. Learn what synthetic drugs look like and the signs that someone is high or overdosing.
U-47700 is usually found in powder or granular form, and when pressed into a pill, it takes on the appearance of a prescription drug. It can sometimes be found as a liquid or as a nasal spray. This drug induces opioid-like effects including decreased blood pressure, intestinal bleeding, loss of consciousness and vomiting.
U-47700 has a high potential for abuse and does not currently have any accepted medical use in the United States. The use of the drug is gaining popularity in Florida and nationwide. This week’s action temporarily outlaws U-47700, and when the state Legislature convenes again, I will work with lawmakers to permanently ban this deadly substance. Working together we can save lives.
