Fentanyl is now the number one killer of adults between the ages of 18 and 45. While this synthetic opioid is often covertly mixed with other substances, it is now being discovered in bright, rainbow colors—raising concerns that it may become more enticing to kids and college students.
Eutylone, a psychoactive bath salt, is also claiming an alarming number of lives in Florida. The National Institute of Justice reports that Florida accounts for more than 60% of the positive cases of eutylone in the United States. It is cheap to produce and mimics the effects of cocaine, methamphetamine and ecstasy. Like fentanyl, eutylone is often being mixed with other illicit drugs and sold to unsuspecting users—with deadly consequences.
So please, never take an illicit substance and remember that just one pill can kill.
