This video will help emergency responders understand the risks and what they can do to protect themselves from exposure to illicit drugs. It shows what happens when an officer is exposed to "illicit" drugs like fentanyl are known as Carfentanil 100x stronger than its chemical cousing Fentanyl. This is not prescription medications you will see in the video and notes at the links. This is mostly imported from china as Carfentanil so powerful one grain the size of a small grain of salt is deadly. The CDC has done other Videos in laboratories on YouTube showing using a sweet-n-low pack saying this 2 grams could kill 50 million people so that why these law enforcement are wearing protective gear as if it was Anthrax.
