MediaTakeOut.com is receiving reports about a new drug - which has surfaced in the hoods in Canada - and authorities say that it will be the worst thing to hit the streets - since CRACK!!
Canadian authorities has identified that some pills being sold in Calgary as OxyContin pills are actually a drug 100 times more potent than the opium based pain killer. The drug, called W-18, is a synthetic opioid with no known clinical use - it is illegal in most of the world because of how DANGEROUS AND ADDICTIVE it is.
W-18 is a novel psychoactive substance and synthetic opioid that comes in powder form, and likely derives from Chinese labs where little-known drugs and analogues of known drugs are mass-produced and sold online. It is 10,000 times more powerful than morphine and 100 times more powerful than fentanyl, greatly increasing the likelihood of overdose and death. When it comes to fentanyl, in 2015 alone, there were 213 overdose deaths in the province, according to Alberta Health, and about 21,000 of the round, blue-green pills were seized in Alberta.
