One time is all it takes. In order for someone to overdose from fentanyl, they only have to try it once. And often, they don’t even know they’ve taken it. Think of your loved ones at a party. They went out to have a good time and maybe they decided to do one bump, one hit- but that’s all it took. It only takes 2 milligrams of fentanyl to cause sudden death. That’s hardly a dose, and when it’s laced into things like cocaine, it’s impossible to detect it with just the naked eye.
Every 9 minutes, someone’s life is stolen in a fentanyl-related incident. Fentanyl is 100 times more potent than morphine and 50 times more potent than heroin. It’s a silent killer, and is now the leading cause of death for 18 to 45-year-olds in the U.S. But it’s time to break that silence and expose it.
Fentanyl doesn’t need to hide anymore. Simply bringing it to light is the first step in stopping it. Warning others about the dangers of fentanyl is the next thing- and that’s our objective at ShareHouse.
