Fentanyl, a powerful painkiller that tends to be cheaper and more potent than heroin, has played a major part in the opioid crisis.

According to the US Drug Enforcement Administration, an estimated 200 people die of overdoses every day.

Prince had taken the drug before his death in 2016.

Fentanyl was also a factor in the fatal overdose suffered by Lil Peep in November 2017.
