This is to notify all NCN residents that there are dangerous drugs that are circulating in the community. Five or more NCN citizens have had seizures and/or had to seek medical attention after using crack and/or cocaine that was purchased in the RC Area of the community.

At this time, it is unknown what these drugs have been laced with or what is causing users to have seizures. RCMP and NCN Chief of Law Enforcement are currently investigating.

It is important to note that many drugs used to lace cocaine and crack, such as fentanyl, can kill you.

Fentanyl is a dangerous drug because:

It is 20 to 40 times more potent than heroin and 100 times more potent than morphine. This makes the risk of accidental overdose very high.

It is odourless and tasteless. You may not even know you are taking it.

It can be mixed with other drugs, such as heroin and cocaine. It is also being found in counterfeit pills that are made to look like prescription opioids.

You increase the risk of overdose if you use fentanyl with:

  • alcohol
  • benzodiazepines
  • other opioids like heroin

Please take care and stay safe; drugs are not worth risking your life!
