A recent NYC Drug Bust Had Enough Fentanyl to Kill 32 Million People


A drug bust in NYC may have saved the lives of 32 million people.

The drug epidemic in America has produced some frightening products such as bath salts which has reportedly caused users to eat the human flesh off of living people.

FentanylThe heroine is often considered to be the worst drug in America and has made a name for itself as the silent killer, but the heroine is only the tip of the proverbial iceberg when it comes to drugs. An opioid by the name of Fentanyl produces the same effects as heroine but with a potency 50 times stronger and the amount recently found in a New York City drug bust is staggering.

Authorities seized enough fentanyl to kill 32 million people in a New York City drug bust in August, prosecutors say.

NBC New York reports that authorities seized nearly 195 pounds of fentanyl in August and September, with one drug bust containing enough lethal doses of the drug to kill 32 million people. Fentanyl, an opioid, is 50 times more powerful than heroin.

“The sheer volume of fentanyl pouring into the city is shocking,” she said. “It’s not only killing a record number of people in New York City, but the city is used as a hub of regional distribution for a lethal substance that is taking thousands of lives throughout the Northeast.”

Authorities also confiscated 75 pounds of cocaine and heroin in the two drug busts, which led to the arrest of four people.

Police and federal agents confiscated more than 140 pounds of fentanyl in the first drug bust on August 1, 2017. Authorities witnessed two suspects receiving what appeared to be a package of cocaine from a drug trafficker at a New Jersey Walmart.

This type of destruction is becoming readily available and if Americans don’t crack down on drug dealers and manufacturers, today’s drug death toll will only increase astronomically.
