Counterfeit "Oxys" Containing Dangerous Fentanyl
Source: National Institute on Drug Abuse
Police in Gulfport Mississippi have issued a warning to the public (May 7, 2018) about counterfeit Oxycodone tablets that look like regular “oxys” but are actually made of the dangerous synthetic opioid fentanyl. Analysis in a DEA lab revealed the pills contained no oxycodone at all.  Pills containing fentanyl carry a high risk of overdose and death, especially if users are unaware of their actual content and are likely to take too many.
