Seven cities in the US have experienced mass-overdose events over the last several months, according to the DEA.

Those events took place in cities in Florida, تكساس, كولورادو, Nebraska, Missouri; and Washington, D.C.

There were multiple mass-overdose events in Florida over the Spring Break season.

In one high profile incident saw seven Spring Breakers, بما فيها five West Point cadets, overdosed on cocaine-laced fentanyl in a vacation home in Wilton Manors, فلوريدا.

One person اعتقل in connection with the overdoses shortly after the incident occurred.

بعد أيام قليلة, fentanyl sent another four men, who were all staying in the same house, to a hospital near Fort Lauderdale.

Drug traffickers are reportedly mixing the high-addictive and potent Fentanyl with other illicit drugs, which is a major factor in the increasing rate of overdoses.

“Tragically, many overdose victims have no idea they are ingesting deadly fentanyl, until it’s too late,” Milgram said.
