Counterfeit Xanax Mixed With Deadly Fentanyl Gaining Ground as Party Drug

An investigation by FOX 11 in Los Angeles found a worrying trend of underworld youth parties with drinking and drugs that could kill with a single pill. Xanax has been popular in some circles as a party drug, but they are not always what they are supposed to be. Counterfeit Xanax is mixed with opiates for any number of reasons. The worst is when the pills are made with fentanyl, which is more powerful than heroin and can be deadly with barely any of it consumed. On top of that,  opioids and Xanax-like drugs can depress the user’s breath, potentially causing a swift death. The investigation found DJs and drug dealers passing these pills around, even to children in attendance of the parties.
