Not the face of evil – 

Dec. 18, 2020 – According to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, fentanyl — a synthetic opioid — is 80 to 100 times stronger than morphine, which is processed to make heroin.

In the criminal complaint filed in 2019, then-Oconto County investigator Justen Ragen noted it’s typical for drug dealers to sell fentanyl as heroin, or mix fentanyl with heroin, because both drugs are narcotic analgesics. They provide similar effects to the user, have similar appearances and by mixing the two, dealers can create more quantity of the drug.
