Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that can be present in various forms (e.g., powder, pill/tablet, liquid), posing different challenges for emergency responders and increasingly appearing in jails and prisons.

According to the DEA, “fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is 80-100 times stronger than morphine” and is known by street names like Apace, China Girl, China Town, China White, Dance Fever, Goodfellas, Great Bear, He-Man, Poison, and Tango & Cash. Fentanyl is cheaper and more potent than illicit opioid pills or heroin. One kilogram of fentanyl costs about $8,000 compared to $80,000 per kg for heroin.
