The Partnership for Safe Medicines has discovered that over 40 states have been affected and taken over by counterfeit fentanyl pills. They are illegally imported and have contributed to dozens of deaths over the past few years. These medicines are made into fake opioids and disguise themselves into pills like Xanax or such. They are usually made with fentanyl, a toxic substance that is deadly with even the smallest of doses. Fortunately, the FDA’s new DSCSA will implement new techniques and solutions to combat this.
