According to the National Crime Agency, some dark web drug suppliers have voluntarily banned synthetic opioid fentanyl because of the risks they create for users.
Vince O ,Brien, one of the NCA's drug-related leaders and observer, stopped selling her because she could lead to the deaths and police attention.
Fentanil is a recipe pain reliever usually administered by doctors as a patch or lollipop. It can be 100 times stronger than heroin and leaves many people dependent.
The figures released in August showed that In 2017 there were 75 deaths in England and WalesIn 2016, there was an increase of 29%.
O .Brien told the newspaper that selling ”high-risk goods’ could increase risks for dark web providers.
He said: ey There are markets for weapons and explosives that won't accept the list – they don't accept lists for fentanyl.
. Obviously, the implementation of laws will prioritize supply of weapons, explosives and fentanyl, for example on class C drugs, and why this may be done.
”In the dark web, there are drug users in the forums who say people don't think that people are selling fentanyl and that they are dangerous and kill a lot of people.“
Fentanyl became a major problem in the UK last year, and the Government promised a collapse on this, before it led to a fatal crisis as seen in the United States, where tens of thousands of deaths were attributed to opioids.
