What’s The Deadliest Drug, Prescription or Marijuana?
District attorney: Marijuana laced with fentanyl is in Tennessee
DA Matthew Stowe told News 2 the drug is here in Tennessee and he can’t warn people fast enough.
Fentanyl is a powerful synthetic opioid used in medical settings to treat chronic pain. On the street, it takes just a small amount for someone to overdose within minutes.
“Marijuana laced with fentanyl can be extremely deadly and to anyone who touches it, taste it, smokes it [or] anything else of that nature,” he explained. “If it’s laced with fentanyl, marijuana can be the deadliest drug there is.”
“I wanted to get an alert out right away,” Stowe said. “I didn’t want the community to have their first notice that we have this problem be someone’s child in the morgue.”
One of the biggest arguments against Marijuana is that it is a “gateway drug.” Well, history has shown us that the gateway to the largest drug crisis and greatest number of deaths in US history from drugs is your doctor’s door. Now there are clinics that refuse to even prescribe opioids, so I applaud them!
