There are just a few days left for Halloween which is celebrated every year on the 31st of October. Children will dress up in scary costumes and will go house to house, knocking on each and every door. You will see children wearing costumes of Witches, monsters, ghosts, and vampires. Some children also dressed up as fairies and princesses.
But this Halloween, parents are scared because of some weird news. There are talks and news that during Halloween drugs are being given to children in candy boxes.
These candies are not real candy, these are fentanyl drugs, or you may call them rainbow fentanyl. This rainbow fentanyl resembles colorful candy. It is very hard to differentiate a real candy from this rainbow fentanyl. Such drugs are found in many toys and candy boxes. These candies are posing a big risk to children and adults who love eating such colorful and bright candies.
Halloween is scary but these fentanyl drugs are scarier!
What is Fentanyl?
What is Fentanyl?
Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is 50-100 times stronger than morphine. Fentanyl was developed for treating cancer patients, normally it is applied to a patch on the skin of a cancer patient. An over doze of Fentanyl can lead to death. Fentanyl produces effects such as relaxation, pain relief, sedation, confusion, drowsiness, dizziness, vomiting, urinary retention, and respiratory depression.
An adult can die by taking a single pill of Fentanyl, therefore children are at high risk.
Illicit Fentanyl is already the number one cause of death among Americans aged 18-45.
The center for disease control and prevention estimates that more than 100,000 US citizens died from a drug overdose in the year 2021, Fentanyl being the main catalyst.
Most of the Fentanyl drug is being brought from the drug country Mexico.
