What are M30 Pills
WARNING: Beware of counterfeit pills that may look like prescription drugs. They likely contain fentanyl. Do not consume any pill that you do not directly receive from a pharmacy or your prescriber. Pills purchased online are not safe.
What is Fentanyl?
Fentanyl is a powerful synthetic opioid drug that is approximately 100 times more powerful than other opioids. Fentanyl is often added to illicit street drugs such as fake pills and white powder. Fentanyl and other opioids cause an overdose by slowing breathing and eventually can cause death.
Where has fentanyl shown up?
All over the US, fentanyl has taken hold. Fentanyl is most commonly seen in blue, greenish, or pale-colored counterfeit pills. There may be other colors. These pills may be marked as “M30” and sometimes as “K9,” “215,” and “v48.” Fentanyl may also be in white powders. Oxycodone pills that are sold on the street or online likely contain fentanyl. You can’t smell or taste fentanyl. You can’t tell if there’s fentanyl in the pills by looking at them. The amount of fentanyl can vary between pills, even within the same batch. While a single pill might get a person high without killing them, another pill could be fatal.
These pills are especially prevalent among the youth. While heroin still has a bad reputation, the fake oxy pills are not regulated and have caused many to overdose and die. These pills are made in large batches in Mexico, shipped to the US, and sold for up to $30.00 a pill. If you suspect a loved one has been using it is very important that they stop because it is such a crap shoot knowing which pill has the deadly dose.
The symptoms of someone using pine pupils are slowed speech, aluminum foil for smoking them, hot and cold sweats, and a flu-like feeling. The detox for this is much like detoxing from heroin and can be very uncomfortable leading many users to turn back to the drug.
