Why is fentanyl found in so many drugs now?

Because fentanyl is so strong, a tiny amount in a pill or a powder can have a huge effect on a user. Since it’s inexpensive to produce, by pressing it into counterfeit pills, people making and selling drugs can increase their profit margin.

In opioid-like drugs, fentanyl may be added as a cheap substitute for heroin or oxycodone. Adding a little fentanyl into a batch allows illicit manufacturers to reduce the amount of heroin or oxycodone needed to produce a high.

Other drugs sold as pills or powders, like cocaine and MDMA, may be mixed with fentanyl intentionally or through cross-contamination via shared surfaces like scales while drugs are being processed and packed.
