New synthetic drug ‘Pink’ has killed 50 people who bought it online
The unexplained deaths of two 13-year-old best friends in Utah may be due to a powerful synthetic drug – ‘Pink’ – which was found on Prince’s estate.
The drug – also known as U-47700 – is a potent synthetic opiate whose effects are not fully researched, and which has been linked to at least 50 overdose deaths in the U.S.
It’s eight times stronger than morphine.
Produced in illicit labs, the drug is freely on sale on the internet – and can be ordered from the UK.
