A little fentanyl goes a long way—which is to say, a tiny bit of it can kill a lot of people very easily:
A Nashville resident was arrested with around 15,000 fentanyl-laced pills, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations (TBI).
The Murfreesboro Police arrested Angel Rodriguez Troche, who is allegedly connected to a drug trafficking organization, Tuesday, the TBI announced Wednesday in a press release.
Rodriguez Troche faces one charge of one count of possession of fentanyl over 300 grams, according to the TBI. Using the Drug Enforcement Administration's metric that 1 kilogram of fentanyl is enough to potentially kill 500,000 people, the 300 grams could be enough to kill nearly 150,000 people.
As the Daily Caller notes, authorities have lately "seized large amounts of fentanyl coming from Mexico for distribution in several states." So I'm just gonna say it again:
Get this poison off our streets and out of our states, immediately.
