Fans reached out on social media to warn others that fentanyl is too dangerous for people to mess around with. As the drug has increased in popularity there have been many community outreaches and campaigns to combat what has become the leading cause of overdose deaths.
Fentanyl has created a public health crisis and as more celebrities are dying it seems people would become fearful and stay away from the drug.
Fentanyl is said to be fifty times stronger than heroin and this accounts for its alarming addictive power as well as it’s killing strength.
There have been reports of children dying simply from touching a fentanyl-laced object. Many cities nationwide are facing a surge in fentanyl use, addiction, and deaths.
President Donald Trump has taken steps to prevent the trafficking of fentanyl in the United States. In April, he asked China’s president to control the exportation of fentanyl which they have agreed to do. It is believed this step will help lessen the amount of fentanyl that makes its way to the United States.
Condolences are sent to Clark Gable III’s family and friends.
