Carfentanil or carfentanyl is an analog of the synthetic opioid analgesic fentanyl. It is 10,000 times more potent than morphine, making it among the most potent commercially used opioids.
Considered a chemical weapon. It was used by the Russian Military in the form of a knockout gas to subdue Chechen hostage takers in the 2002 Moscow theather hostage crisis. 125 hostages died from respiratory failure due to opiate overdose. Not knowing to expect hundreds of patients exposed to high doses of strong opioids, the emergency workers did not bring enough naloxone or naltrexone (the two most commonly-used opiod antagonists) to counteract the carfentanil and save the lives of many of the victims.
Authorities in the US and Canada are seeing a dramatic increase in shipment of carfentanil and other strong opiod drugs to customers in North America from Chinese chemical supply firms. In June, 2016 the Royal Canadian Mounted Police seized one kilogram of carfentanil shipped from China in a box labelled "printer accessories". According to the Canada Border Services Agency, the shipment contained 50 million lethal doses of the drug, more than enough carfentanil to wipe out the entire population of the country, hidden inside cartridges labeled as toner cartridges for Hewlett-Packard LaserJet printers. An officer-in-charge at the Royal Canadian Mounted Police who helped oversee the criminal investigation said, "With respect to carfentanil, we don't know why a substance of that potency is coming into our country".
