Synthetic Opioids: Safe as Prescription, Dangerous on the Streets

May 18, 2017

The number of opioid cases seem to be on the rise nationally, with a very recent case involving an Ohio police officer who accidentally overdosed on Fentanyl, just by touching it bare-handed.

Luckily, the officer was able to get medical treatment right away, but it is a powerful reminder that Fentanyl and other synthetic opioids are incredibly potent and can be deadly. Law enforcement officers are very concerned about coming into contact with these drugs.
