Freddy Fentanyl

Fentanyl is the most lethal drug that we have ever come up against. Only two milligrams of Fentanyl will cause an overdose. Manufacturers of this illicit drug are producing pills of different colors that resemble candy. It is extremely dangerous for those that do not have a tolerance for opioids, especially children and teens. This picture may be a bit graphic, but we are trying to emphasize how horrible a Fentanyl experience can be, which often leads to death. California recorded 4,009 fentanyl-related deaths in 2020. According to the CDC, this was a 140.5% increase from 2019, when the state recorded 1,675 deaths. California Overdose Surveillance Dashboard data shows a soaring death rate among 15 to 19-year-olds since 2012. In 2020, 250 California teens ages 15 to 19 died from fentanyl overdoses. 2021 saw a slight decline to 224.
