China sentences nine to prison for smuggling fentanyl into U.S

A Chinese court in the northern town of Xingtai on Thursday sentenced two people to prison, such as one suspended death sentence, for smuggling fentanyl to the USA.

Details of this case were given to reporters invited into the Legislation.

Fentanyl is an extremely addictive synthetic opioid, 50 times stronger than heroin and frequently utilized to make bogus narcotics due to its comparatively cheaper cost and can readily be used to fake other more expensive medications.

It’s played an increasingly crucial part in an opioid emergency in the USA.
