Following a recent press release from the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Penn State students are cautioned on the presence and dangers of brightly colored fentanyl known as “rainbow fentanyl.” Rainbow fentanyl is an emerging trend used by drug cartels to sell fentanyl — disguised as candy — to children and young people. Coming in the form of pills, powder and blocks resembling sidewalk chalk, rainbow fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is 50 times more potent than heroin and 100 times more potent than morphine.
