Police suspect that fentanyl laced drugs might have been responsible for Lil Peep’s overdose

This post was originally published on this site

While the toxicology report containing the specific details of Lil Peep’s death has yet to arrive, police in Tucson, Arizona have reportedly received information regarding the potential presence of fentanyl in the drugs ingested by Lil Peep prior to his death.

A potent synthetic opioid, fentanyl is 50 to 100 times more powerful than morphine, leading to an increased risk of overdose for users of drugs cut with the opioid. Fentanyl additionally augments the addictive quality of addictive substances, further increasing the chance for drug addiction and related overdoses. Fentanyl has appeared as a substance used to cut drugs on the black market, despite its toxicity — an amount of fentanyl the size of a mere grain of salt can materialize as a lethal dose. Fentanyl overdose victims are generally unaware that the drugs that they take are laced with fentanyl at the time of consumption.

Lil Peep’s brother, Karl Ahr, stated earlier this month that the family had been informed by an unspecified source that fentanyl laced drugs could have played a part in the rapper’s death. “We have heard there was some sort of substance he did not expect to be involved in the substance he was taking,” Ahr said. “He [Lil Peep] thought he could take what he did, but he had been given something and he didn’t realize what it was.” Ahr believes Lil Peep’s death to have been a tragic accident.

The artist’s death was determined to be a drug overdose by the local medical examiner’s office. Lil Peep’s toxicology report will be able to identify whether fentanyl was indeed involved in the overdose. Toxicology reports generally become available from a six to eight-week period.
