A dangerous new drug, fentanyl, has made its way to the Western Slope of Colorado. Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid estimated by the Drug Enforcement Agency to be 100 times more potent than morphine and 50 times more potent than heroin. 

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) reported that Montrose, Delta, and Montezuma counties experienced eight drug overdose deaths in 2020 while La Plata County saw seven drug overdose deaths that same year.
