Carfentanil discovered in Estevan-area (Canada) drug seizure

The Estevan Royal Canadian Mounted Police have received confirmation that carfentanil has been detected in a substance seized by investigators in the Estevan area in October this year (2017).

Carfentanil is a derivative of fentanyl that can be 100 times more potent. The drug can also be up 10,000 times more powerful than morphine. According to police, exposure to even a very small amount can be fatal through ingestion, inhalation or absorption through the skin. The RCMP are warning the public about the danger of consuming illicit drugs from unregulated sources. Police say street drugs can often be called one thing, but may unknowingly contain other substance, such as carfentanil.
