Fentanyl and marijuana
A Tennessee District Attorney is offering a warning about a new, deadly mix of drugs – fentanyl mixed with marijuana. DA Matthew Stowe says the mixture is being seen across Tennessee, and it is coming in, in vast quantities. Fentanyl is a powerful synthetic opioid used to treat chronic pain. On the street, it takes just a small amount for someone to overdose within minutes. The drug is easy to transport and difficult to detect, and there is no way for someone on the street to know if the marijuana is laced. Since fentanyl is so powerful, Stowe said that marijuana laced with it could kill more than just the user. “Marijuana laced with fentanyl can be extremely deadly and to anyone who touches it, taste it or smokes it,” he explained. “If it’s laced with fentanyl, marijuana can be the deadliest drug there is.” Agents have recovered the deadly mix of drugs from busts throughout Tennessee.
