Fentanyl in Latin America

Freddy Bernal, governor of the Venezuelan state of Táchira, bordering Colombia, announced the first seizure in that territory of fentanyl, a potent drug expanding in the continent, particularly in the U.S. and Brazil.

“We’ve already made the first seizure of fentanyl, a week ago in San Antonio del Táchira. An individual was arrested with 45 portions of fentanyl and handed over to the competent courts,” he said.

Bernal stated that fentanyl “is the zombie drug, it’s the killer drug” and that it has “300% more addiction potential than cocaine” and a “terrible” mortality rate.

The governor called on parents, the educational community, and recreational centers to “stay vigilant” regarding young people and prevent the entry of “this deadly drug.”
