Em um press release on Wednesday issuing the warning, DEA administrator Anne Milgram offered the federal agency’s support to law enforcement tasked with responding to these overdoses.

“Fentanyl is killing Americans at an unprecedented rate,” Milgram said.

“Already this year, numerous mass-overdose events have resulted in dozens of overdoses and deaths.”

Mass-overdose events occur when there are three or more overdoses in close proximity to each other.

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, Texas, Colorado, 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, Incluindo five West Point cadets, overdosed on cocaine-laced fentanyl in a vacation home in Wilton Manors, Flórida.

Uma pessoa foi preso in connection with the overdoses shortly after the incident occurred.

Alguns dias depois, 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.
