Addiction experts issue ‘street advisory’ after spike in overdose deaths

ST. LOUIS — Local addiction experts on the front lines of opioid abuse are issuing a warning.

There is a deadlier form of fentanyl hitting the streets in St. Louis. The slang term is “scramble”.

For local addicts, fentanyl was already deadly. Now, this stronger form of the drug is putting more lives at risk. In just the last few days, seven people have died of drug overdoses.
