LONG ISLAND: Prescription Painkiller Fentanyl Linked To At Least 220 As Unknowing People Overdose on the Drug

Jan 2, 2017 | Personal Injury

HUNDREDS OF DEATHS LINKED TO FENTANYL OVERDOSE

LONG ISLAND, NEW YORK (January 1, 2017) – The New York Times is reporting that at least 220 people have been killed by overdosing on fentanyl.

Fentanyl is a synthetic prescription pain killer. The drug has become more popular over the years because it is cheaper to manufacture than a number of other drugs.

Many people have died from using fentanyl and accidentally overdosing. The famous singer Prince died in 2016 after overdosing on fentanyl.

Drug traffickers have also started using the drug to enhance the potency of heroin. This combination has made the two drugs all the more deadly.
