Fentanyl Awareness

Message to Parents

Throughout Skagit County we are experiencing issues with the use of Fentanyl. The following information is being shared throughout the county with families to make you aware of this new trend, especially right before Halloween.

According to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), there is an alarming trend of colorful fentanyl available across our state and country. This “rainbow fentanyl” is made to look like candy, and comes in a variety of bright colors, shapes and sizes. The DEA reports that illicit drug manufacturers and dealers are specifically targeting youth through the use of the rainbow colored pills (see pictures below).

What is fentanyl?

According to the DEA, fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is 50 times more potent than heroin and 100 times more potent than morphine. It is tasteless and odorless, and too small to see with the naked eye. Fentanyl is extremely addictive and users quickly develop dependency on the drug. Just two milligrams of fentanyl, which is equal to 10-15 grains of table salt, is considered a lethal dose. Without laboratory testing, there is no way to know how much fentanyl is concentrated in a pill or powder.

Fentanyl-laced pills often look identical to pills prescribed by doctors. People selling or sharing the drugs may not even know the pills contain fentanyl. It is a myth that drugs from trusted sources are safe. Pills and powders from any source—besides a licensed medical provider or pharmacy—should be assumed to contain this deadly ingredient, making every dose a risk.

Talk with your child about the dangers of fentanyl
While these conversations can be difficult, informing children and young adults about the drugs, what they look like, and their extreme danger has a critical impact in preventing overdoses. Here are some helpful tips to facilitate these conversations, especially with teens.

If you ever encounter someone who may be experiencing an overdose, call 911 immediately
The most clear sign of an overdose is if someone is unresponsive. Other signs include:

  • Slowed or no breathing
  • Heavy gurgling or snoring sounds
  • Blue or gray skin, lips, or nails
  • Cold or clammy skin

Skagit County first responders carry the drug Naloxone, which can save lives. It’s important for older youth and adults to know that calls for medical help will not result in legal consequences under Washington State’s Good Samaritan Law. If you encounter what you believe to be fentanyl in any form, do not handle it and call 911.

We are sharing this information to be proactive, and to keep our students safe.
