Coroner warning: Deadly drugs exploit loopholes in law, land users in Baton Rouge emergency rooms

The Advocate - The East Baton Rouge Parish Coroner is calling for a "preemptive strike" against three new deadly drugs that have made their way to the parish, none of which have any medical purpose.

Two new opioid substances and one psychoactive substance were found in a recent toxicology report from an overdose death, said Coroner William "Beau" Clark, which means the harmful drugs are in this area.

The three drugs are: Furanyl Fentanyl, an opioid similar to fentanyl; U-47700, called "pink" and "pinky" on the street that is an opioid-like substance; and Etizolam, a novel psychoative substance. All are deadly.
