Now that liquid Fentanyl has been found in Hamilton–a first in the country–Hamilton police say finding the source is the top priority.
It is highly potent and deadly with only a small amount being needed to kill an average adult.
Drug Unit Detective Adam Brown says the opioid problem has been progressing in strength and has been moving east across the country.
Brown says Hamilton police are working with the RCMP and other agencies trying to find the source.
Given how potent and deadly liquid Fentanyl is, police are urging anyone with information to call them or Crime Stoppers.
