Fentanyl and fentanyl analogues are the deadliest drugs and most addictive drugs” our nation has ever seen. They are powerful synthetic opioids that are similar to morphine but 50 to 100 times more potent.

The research findings presented in the 2020 KY Overdose Fatality Report, state “more than 1,964 Kentuckians died from drug overdoses in 2020, a 49% increase in drug overdose deaths compared with the year prior.” The report further states, in “cases autopsied by the Kentucky Office of the Medical Examiner and toxicology reports submitted by Kentucky coroners, the increase in the death toll was driven mostly by a rise in opioid abuse, fentanyl and fentanyl analogues, which were found in 1,292 cases, accounting for approximately 71% of all overdose deaths for the year.”

Dealers frequently mix fentanyl with other drugs, such as heroin, pills, cocaine, methamphetamine, and MDMA, which results in the cheaper availability of drugs. This practice is extremely risky for users who may not realize that this cheap addictive may be stronger than they are accustomed, often leading to overdose.

Many families have been impacted by the drug epidemic, and have experienced the devastation of overdoses and resulting deaths.
