Officials prepare for the next big drug? It's U-47700.

Here is an article about the possible emergence of the opioid research chemical U-47700 in Iowa.

One quote to which you should pay attention...

"Weber says the new drug contains fentanyl which is a powerful medication."

No.

No.

No.

Though they may be found together in illicitly produced products, U-47700 is not Fentanyl. Fentanyl is not U-47700.

They are two different compounds each with its own distinct chemical structure.

Let's make sure to accurately describe the situation.
