As if the whole bath salts epidemic wasn’t enough to scare the ever-loving crap out of you, during a police raid authorities in Canada have uncovered a new drug that they are claiming is “40 times stronger than heroin and 80 times stronger than morphine.”

First, the technical stuff about this new black-market boogeyman.

Mario Guérin, an assistant director for the Montreal police, said investigators found three kilograms of desmethyl fentanyl after they sent the seized pills to the lab for analysis.

Fentanyl on its own is a powerful painkiller in the form of a patch that is usually prescribed to cancer patients and people suffering from chronic pain disorders.

The desmethyl fentanyl is a derivative of it that has been chemically modified to be even more potent and is reported to be 40 times stronger than heroin and 80 times stronger than morphine.

The potent chemical was made into coloured pills, sporting logos from companies like Facebook and Canadian doughnut giant Tim Horton’s that police say were intended to make them more attractive to younger drug users.

Think about.  If this drug is as powerful as police are saying it is, then this video showcasing the dangers of bath salts could just be the tip of the iceberg for what we’re all about to be dealing with.
