The next wave of tragedy in the opioid epidemic looks to involve new, synthetic opioid drugs. The rise in the sale of drugs on the internet and more clever methods of disguising packaging has allowed a new generation of dangerous drugs onto the streets. One of these synthetic opioids, technically named U-47700, but known by the street name “pink,” has already claimed many lives.
