Thaindian News reports, "some people have already started to distribute Fentanyl lollipops illegally. These illegal drugs uses the nickname, "perc-a-pop" and has become popular among a large number of people for its sweet taste. Though the price of the illegal drugs is double than the original drugs, number of people getting addicted to this drug is increasing. Not only people are using "perc-a-pop" but also some people who have been addicted to this drug have stolen them from medical centers, stated sources". Opiates have been known to be highly addictive and continued use will guarantee dependency. Drugs, like Fentanyl, have their place in society because the are highly effective for pain relief; however, if we continue to distribute these drugs we need to track them closely. Overdoses are common with strong opiates and many people do not understand how easy it is to take too much.
It will be interesting to see if drugs like Fentanyl will be heavily restricted in the near future.
