Counterfeit oxycodone pills that are really pure fentanyl

More from this show

The Drug Enforcement Administration office seized 30,000 fentanyl pills that were marked to look like oxycodone pills last year. Fentanyl is much more powerful and dangerous than oxycodone. The DEA says a huge number of the pills are coming into Arizona from Mexican cartels. We’ll hear more from Doug Coleman, U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration Special Agent in Charge of the Phoenix Field Division.
