Governor Sununu Warns of Deadly Drug on NH Streets
Governor Chris Sununu issued a warning yesterday to NH residents about a deadly drug now on NH streets. Sununu announced that the deaths of two Manchester men and a Meredith man from carfentanil was confirmed by the NH Medical Examiner and state forensic lab
Carfentanil is indistinguishable from heroin and fentanyl, and some forms can be absorbed through the skin, according to the Drug Enforcement Agency.
The opioid is a 100 times more potent than Fentanyl and 10,000 times stronger than morphine. It is used commercially as an anesthetic and sedative for large animals such as elephants. The drug is also cheap to acquire. Using Narcon successfully on someone who has overdosed from carfentanil is unlikely. The amount of Nacone needed to combat a carfentanil overdose would far exceed the available dosage available in current kits.
