Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is up to 50 times stronger than heroin and 100 times stronger than morphine. According to the CDC, more than 150 people die every day from overdoses related to synthetic opioids like fentanyl. Thank you to @livermorepolice for sharing this important video with us about a mother who lost her daughter to fentanyl in 2019. By sharing this heartbreaking message, we hope to stop drug overdoses and safe lives.
