Fentanyl tablets and powders are now in different colors, sizes, shapes, etc. According to DEA administrator Anne Milgram, it is an intentional attempt by drug traffickers to drive addiction among teenagers and young people.
The people working in DEA are attempting to prevent the smuggling of rainbowy Fentanyl and beat the Mexican drug cartels liable for the extensive majority of rainbow drugs smuggled into the United States.
Due to several efforts, Rainbow colored drug pills are being seized in many forms like tablets, chalk form, powder, etc. But on the other hand, it can’t be ignored that every shape, size, or color of this colorful tablet should be considered to explain the harm.
This colorful tablet is a synthetic opioid 50 times stronger than heroin and around 100 times more powerful than morphine. And as per the reports, it is considered that only 2 mg of Fentanyl, equal to around 15 grains of table salt, is known as a lethal dose. Apart from laboratory testing, there is no method to learn about the quantity of fentanyl concentrated in one pill.
Fentanyl is the deadliest drug ever created in the US. According to the research of the CDC, more than 107,600 American people will die in 2021 due to drug overdose, with 65% of those from synthetic opioids.
Drug poisoning is the leading killer of Americans, especially teenagers and youth. Fentanyl present in the United States is primarily delivered by two criminal drug networks, which are the Sinaloa cartel and CJNG.
To spread awareness among the US citizen, the DEA introduced a campaign whose name is one till can kill the public. The motive of this campaign is to educate Americans about the risk of counterfeit pills and to save the upcoming generation.
