Summary and Key Findings:
  • 91 samples were reported between February and April 2021
  • Most “heroin” samples contained fentanyl cut with xylazine; however, heroin was identified in a few samples
  • Cocaine and methamphetamine samples were not adulterated with other unsuspecting drugs, but fentanyl contamination was observed and determined to be insignificant
  • para-Fluorofentanyl is increasing in prevalence and was identified as the primary opioid in some “heroin” samples
