People Are Using a $1 Test Strip to Check Their Drugs for Fentanyl


Fentanyl, an opioid drug 50 times more potent than heroin is now the leading cause of fatal overdoses nationwide, killing about two people a day in Baltimore alone. Public health experts nationwide, mostly in big cities, are providing fentanyl test strips to drug users to let them test the drugs for themselves.

Faculty Associate Susan Sherman, one of the study’s leaders, is quoted.
