Fentanyl is a powerful synthetic opioid that is up to 50 times stronger than heroin and 100 times stronger than morphine. It is a Schedule II prescription drug; drugs in this classification have a high potential for abuse, which may cause severe psychological or physical dependence. It is also a major contributor to fatal and nonfatal overdoses in the U.S., with 42,687 people overdosing on fentanyl in the 12 months leading up to May 2020.
