Long the subject of scare stories, Connecticut authorities are reporting what they believe to be the first confirmed case of fentanyl-laced cannabis.
- According to the New England HIDTA, between July and October there were 39 cases of patients who exhibited symptoms of opioid overdose but denied using opioids.
- Several of the more recent cases were in Plymouth, Conn. The state has not yet opened its REC market.
- It’s not clear who mixed the compounds or why.
- Chris Roberts writes: “As with fentanyl-tainted cocaine and methamphetamine, there are myriad explanations for how and why this could happen, ranging from the nefarious to the extremely dumb.”
