EASTON, Pa. - A new drug is hitting the streets and it can kill with a single dose.
"Gray death" can be a lethal mixture of heroin, fentanyl, elephant tranquilizer, and a synthetic opioid.
The drug looks like concrete and has already been found in Georgia, Alabama, and Ohio.
Users can inject, swallow, smoke or snort it.
Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli issued a warning to law enforcement and citizens about the drug on Monday.
Morganelli said he hasn't heard of the drug making its way into Pennsylvania but wouldn't be surprised if it did.
"We're seeing more and more opioid deaths here and I think it's a matter of time," he said.
Georgia has already seen 17 deaths from the opioid combo of this year and the state's Bureau of Investigations said it's so powerful the effects may not be able to be reversed with one dose of NARCAN.
Bethlehem City Council's Community Development Committee forwarded an ordinance they said will be a "proactive storytelling" tool in showcasing the efficiency and effectiveness of tax-incentive programs throughout the city.Read More »
