Public Health Issues Alert Over Laced Street Pills
Fentanyl laced counterfeit prescription opioids, like Oxycotin and Percocet, have made their way into the Limestone City.
KFL&A Public Health suspects illicit fentanyl counterfeit drugs found in Kingston may have been involved in recent life-threatening overdoses and are awaiting lab results.
They say the counterfeit pills can be made to look almost identical to prescription opioids so you can't tell if they have been tampered with or are laced with dangerous Fentanyl until its too late.
Public Health also says the presence of fentanyl significantly increases the risk of overdose, which can be fatal even in very small amounts.
