The Eastern Ontario Health Unit (EOHU) and the Cornwall Community Police Service (CCPS) are warning the public that illicit Fentanyl has been seized by authorities within the five eastern counties.
“Fentanyl, whether it’s the real thing produced by the pharmaceutical industry or illicit, is an opioid drug that slows down the part of the brain that controls breathing,” says Dr. Paul Roumeliotis, Medical Officer of Health at the EOHU. “Illicit Fentanyl is deadly because the dosage is not controlled and it can therefore cause people to completely stop breathing.”
The health unit and Cornwall Police are reminding the public not to buy any drugs off the street as there’s no way of knowing what’s inside them.
