The Drug 100 Times More Powerful Than Fentanyl

Calgary's chief medical examiner has confirmed Alberta's first death related to the synthetic opioid W-18, a drug that's 100 times stronger than fentanyl and 10,000 times stronger than morphine. News of the death comes as the province is already reeling from a fentanyl overdose crisis.

According to a police statement released Friday, officers were called into a hotel in south Calgary on the night of March 7 after reports that a 35-year-old man had overdosed. Emergency medical responders pronounced him dead at the scene, where drug paraphernalia and an unused naloxone kit a kit to reverse opiate overdoses were also found. Testing confirmed the man also had heroin and 3-methyl fentanyl, which is 10 to 15 times stronger than heroin, in his system, but it's unclear exactly which drug was the direct cause of his death. Police say the man had a long-term girlfriend and baby daughter.

His is the first reported death of its kind in the province, but it could also be the first in Canada.
