Gray Death Infographic
A new street drug made up of opioids and synthetic opioids, Gray Death is plaguing the nation with overdose and death. The exact contents in the final substance are often a mystery, although Gray Death is generally made up of heroin, fentanyl, carfentanil, and U-47700 which is also known as “Pink.” There is no exact recipe for Gray Death, but typically a person intends to buy heroin when they wind-up this mixture. The drugs laced with the heroin are dangerous, and far too potent for human consumption. Carfentanil is a tranquilizer used for elephants and tigers, is 100 times more potent than heroin, and 10,000 times more potent than morphine; fentanyl is 50 times more potent than heroin, and “Pink” is 7-8 times more potent than morphine. Because of the potency of Gray Death, it often leads to death by overdose, and in 3 months led to 50 overdoses in Georgia alone.
