Acetyl1 This New Drug Is Five Times Stronger Than Heroin And Legal In The UK

A man in Cardiff died after taking new legal high acetyl fentanyl, which is said to be five times stronger than heroin.

Father-of-three, Thaker Hadif, 37, died after using the designer drug in an attempt to wean himself of heroin.

A toxicology report showed traces of amphetamine, phenazepam, buprenorphine and a high quantity of acetyl fentanyl in Hadif’s urine and blood.

Toxicologist Dr Simon Elliott said about the drug:

It’s designed to bypass the laws as it is legal to buy, but this is the first time we have seen this in the UK. It affects the respiratory system and switches off the brain’s function to tell the body to breathe.

It comes in a white powder and is five times stronger than heroin and 15 times stronger than morphine.

There is a very strong chance people will overdose from using this particular drug and there hasn’t been enough deaths worldwide to bring it to the attention of the authorities. The more people know about this drug the safer they will be.

The death is the first to be linked to acetyl fentanyl in the UK, although one report claims that 14 people in the U.S died from the drug in 2013.

The drug goes by many slang names including ‘Tango’, ‘Apache’, ‘Jackpot’, and the less sexy ‘Murder 8’.

The reason the drug is technically legal in the UK and the U.S is because it’s classed as “not fit for human consumption”, so we really wouldn’t recommend giving this one a try!
