News reports out of Arizona (12News) state that the DEA has raided a synthetic cannabinoid manufacturing laboratory.
Well, that's not news. It's happened quite a bit over the last several years.
These folks were mixing synthetic cannabinoids with fentanyl.
This definitely is a way to cause serious harm.
It was only a matter of time.
According to the news report, they manufacturers were preparing the fentanyl and synthetic cannabinoid product in a cement mixer.
If I was in possession of a synthetic cannabinoid containing product in the state of Arizona, I'd throw it away. Now.
To all the people that come into contact with these substances (whether user, law enforcement, first responder, hospital staff, forensic chemists, etc.), be safe.
