What is the new deadly drug cocktail 'Gray Death?'

It seems like there is no end to the illegal -- and potentially deadly -- drugs that are available now. One of the latest is something called "Gray Death." Just one dose, which can be purchased for as little as $10, can kill a person.

Gray Death is a lethal drug cocktail that looks like a concrete block and has been found along the Gulf Coast. However, it is finding its way to other states. A spokesman for the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) says that they "are monitoring the potential spread of this deadly combination of drugs."

The cocktail is made from heroin and the painkiller fentanyl, combined with an animal tranquilizer used on elephants and tigers. It also includes a synthetic opioid often referred to as "U4" or "Pink." That alone has caused at least 46 fatalities in the last two years.

Increasingly, people seek more and more powerful pain relievers to substitute for prescription pain medications that doctors will no longer prescribe to them. They can be easy prey for those who make and sell these powerful drug cocktails. Drug enforcement agencies and local law enforcement, needless to say, are on the lookout for this newest deadly combination of drugs.

If you or a loved one is facing criminal charges for possession of Gray Death or other drug cocktail, it's essential to seek guidance from an experienced Florida defense attorney experienced in handling drug charges. It may be possible to be enrolled in a rehabilitation or diversionary program that is intended to get people's lives back on track rather than face incarceration.
