Drug overdose deaths in America have grown to over 70 thousand in 2017. It's all driven by Fentanyl. They say it's 100 times more powerful than morphine. The crazy thing is, when a junkie hears people are overdosing on something... They want it. Most of the heroin addiction is driven by prescription opioid addiction, once you can't find the pills anymore. The street drugs are sometimes cheaper and easier to find.

According to this story from ABC News, now deadly Fentanyl is being found in cocaine. In the story, they talk about how already since October over 38 thousand pounds of cocaine has been seized. There was 52 thousand last year. A lot of it laced with Fentanyl.

They are trying to "spice" up the cocaine with Fentanyl and that is driving up the cocaine overdose death totals. You never know when something has been laced with Fentanyl.

A lot of people are going to party this 4th of July. You'll get safer bumps off these Michigan roads.
