Cocaine/Fentanyl Combination in Pennsylvania
February 01, 2018
The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Philadelphia Field Division (PFD) conducted an assessment of laboratory-analyzed drug seizures. Some seized cocaine exhibits were found to contain cocaine and fentanyl, as well as a combined cocaine and fentanyl presence in overdose death toxicology reporting. This analysis was conducted in response to reported increases in the co-occurrence of cocaine and fentanyl in other regions and subsequent inquiries regarding trends in Pennsylvania.
