What Is Rainbow Fentanyl? DEA Warns of Dangerous Pills That Look Like Candy 

Be aware that fentanyl—a synthetic opioid up to 100 times more potent than morphine

may be concealed from view. According to a statement from the US Drug Enforcement Administration, "Rainbow" fentanyl, which resembles candy, has been found in several states (DEA).

The FDA describes the manufacturing of the tablets as a "alarming developing trend."

Rainbow fentanyl hazards are currently being discussed in schools across the nation, 

including Pennsylvania State University and some school districts in Florida.

 Law enforcement found the pills in at least 18 states in August alone. 

Unfortunately, according to experts, the nation is not doing enough to combat the opioid epidemic, 

 which is in turn raising the health hazards associated with fentanyl.

If you believe you’ve come across any form of fentanyl, do not handle it and call 911 immediately, 

the DEA said in its statement: “Every color, shape, and size of fentanyl should be considered extremely dangerous.”
