I need you to read this, and tell your friends. Deadly fentanyl-laced pills are being disguised and sold as oxycodone. A single one could kill you. Please, please be careful.
In the course of an investigation into a national drug trafficking ring, my office intercepted a package coming from the West Coast. It was stuffed with marijuana, and inside the marijuana, we found 500 small blue pills made to look like Oxy. But when we took the pills to the lab, we discovered it wasn't Oxy at all—it was a toxic mix of acetaminophen and Fentanyl, one of the deadliest drugs in the world.
Fentanyl is 50 times stronger than heroin. A dose just the size of a few grains of sand can be lethal.
These pills are almost exact copies, and they can kill you.
We are continuing our investigation, but this public health emergency is too serious to wait to alert New Yorkers. From what we have learned, these deadly pills are already on the streets of Western New York, and the public needs to know.
Don’t take any pills that you haven’t gotten from the pharmacy yourself. Please stay safe, and be vigilant. #Opioids #oxycodone #fentanyl #alert
