By the drug industry, rainbow fentanyl was used to entic young children ...

The 'Rainbow fentanyl' is a narcotics company that uses it to lure youngsters.

On the black market, “multi-colored” or “rainbow” fentanyl, with brightly coloured strands, has recently emerged.

In response to numerous suspected overdoses and fatalities involving fentanyl in underage people in Hays County, law enforcement organizations have issued warnings, including the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

The DEA has discovered rainbow-colored fentanyl tablets in at least 18 states.

The Drug Enforcement Administration claims that the rainbow of colors makes them more appealing to youngsters who may mistake them for candy. Anyone, even young children, can overdose and die with far less of the drug.

Fentanyl, a synthetic opioid, is prescribed for extreme pain. Due to its extreme strength, it is useful in relieving pain, but it is also more likely to overdose, (50 times that of heroin, 100 times that of morphine).

Fentanyl that was illicitly manufactured and sold but not mixed with heroin or cocaine has been linked to fatal overdoses in several instances.

According to preliminary statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the number of fentanyl-related deaths in Texas increased significantly between 2018 and 2021, from 214 in 2018 to 1,672 in 2021.
