Fentanyl is considered to be the primary source of a wave of overdose deaths among youth in Los Angeles and other American cities. Most of the Fentanyl is manufactured in China and reaches the US through our porous Southern border. The girls were said by authorities to have purchased the Ecstasy pills online.
