by Jack Montgomery, The National Pulse:

Fentanyl-laced marijuana is spreading rapidly across the United States, doctors have warned. This poses a particular threat to teenagers who may not be aware they are being exposed to the deadly synthetic opioid.

In a letter to the Primary Companion for CNS Disorders journalDr. Shailesh Jain of the Texas Tech University Health Science Center and three other physicians warned, “prescription drugs or fentanyl-laced marijuana” are the most common way for young people to be “initiated” into fentanyl use.


“Fentanyl-laced marijuana has been recovered from across the United States,” they note. The doctors cited reports of “school children intoxicated with fentanyl when using marijuana,” highlighting how even small amounts of the drug can easily kill minors.

“Combining fentanyl and marijuana can have severe drug-to-drug interactions and potentially life-threatening consequences,” the doctors warned, noting that taken together, the drugs can cause “extreme drowsiness, confusion, and impaired coordination,” elevating the risk of accidental injuries.

Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) special agent Towanda Thorne-James recently warned fentanyl is now “in everything that we seize.”
