Fort William First Nation put out a public notice earlier this year, informing the public of these โ€œbad pillsโ€.

The pills are โ€œfakeโ€ in a sense that black market criminals are making them out of fentanyl, and passing them off as percocets.

It is too easy to overdose on fentanyl, many people are not with us anymore due to drugs being laced with the harmful and dangerous drug.

Mishkeegogamang is the most recent community to have detected the fraudulently pressed pills.

Thunder Bay and surrounding area, including Fort Frances, Kenora, Dryden, Marathon, etc, had a steady flow of these fake pills for years now. Ensure you have a buddy with you and a naloxone kit if you are going to use these drugs anyways. You can get a free naloxone kit at your local pharmacy. Naloxone isnโ€™t guaranteed to save your life in an overdose, but it will increase your chances of survival.

Read below about a southern Ontario gang member who was convicted for selling โ€œfake percocetsโ€ that were made with fentanyl.
