(UNDATED) - It is imperative that everyone handling controlled substances be cognizant of the hazards that are inherent with some of these drugs and take appropriate precautions.

The Indiana State Police Laboratory's Drug Unit has identified fentanyl and carfentanil in casework samples. Several overdoses have been linked to these drugs and they can pose significant dangers to those exposed to them.

Street drugs laced with fentanyl pose life threatening consequences to the user as well as medical and police personnel that respond to a person who has overdosed on fentanyl laced drugs. These drugs also present significant risks to police laboratory professionals who must analyze these toxic drugs.
