Two Perris residents charged in what is believed to be the largest seizure of carfentanil in Riverside County

Two Perris residents charged in what is believed to be the largest seizure of carfentanil in Riverside County

The investigation by the Riverside Police Department resulted in the seizure of 21 kilos of carfentanil.

 

Carfentanil is 100 times more powerful than fentanyl and 10,000 times more potent than morphine. A lethal dose of carfentanil in humans would be at the nanogram level – much smaller than the two milligrams of fentanyl that can kill.

 

If mixed in with other drugs, the 21 kilos of carfentanil seized could have been enough to potentially kill more than 50 million people.
