Prescott Police Department Issues Warning About New Drug “Gray Death”
Prescott Police Department has issued a warning to the public after a dangerous drug was discovered at the scene of a recent overdose.
The drug, known as “gray death,” was found for the first time in the city, and authorities are concerned about its potency and deadly effects.
Prescott Valley Police Department has also reported their first case of the drug and is warning the community about its danger.
“Gray death” is a lethal cocktail of some of the strongest opioids, including carfentanyl, fentanyl, and u47700, also known as “pink.” This mixture can cause a euphoric high, but it is highly addictive and can easily lead to overdose and death.
Its discovery in the community has raised many questions about who is producing, selling, and transporting it.
The authorities are taking the opioid crisis seriously, and with the help of the DEA, they are working to identify the source of the drug and its spread in the community.
While overdose deaths in Arizona have declined in recent years, there were still over 2,000 deaths in 2021 and 1,800 in 2020.
The authorities hope that by educating the public about the dangers of such drugs, they can prevent more fatalities in the future.
Police are sending a clear message to the public about the dangers of these illicit drugs, stating that fentanyl, carfentanyl, and all such opioids are highly dangerous and illegal for a reason.
The discovery of “gray death” in the community is alarming, and authorities urge anyone who comes across it to report it immediately.
Further testing is being conducted on the drug by the DPS crime lab, and the authorities hope to uncover more information about its origin and spread.
