A drug that has been reported as 100 times more toxic than fentanyl and 10,000 more potent than morphine has been found in the Prince Albert Penitentiary.
Saskatchewan RCMP have confirmed that carfentanil was present in a substance tested by Health Canada after an incident at the Penitentiary in July. On the morning of July 15th, a 22 year old inmate was found unresponsive. Naloxone was administered and he was transported to hospital Police say he didn't die, but that is as much information on his condition as they are releasing at this time. This is the first time carfentanil has been confirmed in a Saskatchewan RCMP jurisdiction. Superintendent Rob Cameron says even an amount less than a grain of salt can kill a human and even being in the presence of carfentanil is putting yourself at risk. The only medications that are safe, are those prescribed by licensed medical professionals.
