Events around the globe have caused the border force of each country to tighten up their security and Canadians even passed a law to prevent the drugs from entering the country. Today Australian Border Force also made some officers deployed to the cyberspace to combat the rising in dark web purchases of opioid drugs like Fentanyl which could even make us suffer from an epidemic.
The prescription drug Fentanyl and U-47,700 consumed in overdose last year by rockstar Prince led to an accidental death which was later confirmed in the police probe the drugs in his body and cocktail.
A US federal Drug Enforcement Agency report to Australian counterparts gave a fair warning about the rise in the epidemic they are combating will likely to be experienced here.
Such is the issue in the US, heroin and opioid-related deaths have surpassed gun homicides for the first time. In 2014-15 alone death rates rose 72.2 percent in the US.
Did you Know? – Fentanyl is considerd to be 25 to 50 times stronger than heroin.
ABF Chief Roman Quaedvlieg told,”Fentanyl has caused a large number of deaths across North America over a number of years and we fear it could result in a similar toll here as a result of its potency”.
He added that there are dozens of dark websites on the section of the web which anonymously sell these drugs in little quantities but bulked from china, turkey and elsewhere.
Those seeking to import this drug should not assume the Dark Net, a major source of such products, is invisible to Australian authorities,” he said.
ABF’s international mail command’s Superintendent Phillip Anderson said quantities are small but risks high,” Even the darknet where people are buying Fentanyl and carfentanil puts a big warning sign”.
People tend to use this drug by making overdoses while mixing it with other stuff and even dark web warns people while dealing with this stuff
“It’s fair to say detections are now regular sometimes even three a day,” Philip told the interview.
