Dangerous New Drug In Manitoba

Dangerous New Drug

WINNIPEG - There's a dangerous new drug in Manitoba that's been showing up on the streets of Brandon.

Prairie Mountain Health Authority says it's a beige powder known as Benzo and according to Health Canada, it tests positive for Fentanyl and Bromazolam.

It causes respiratory depression and sedation and it can cause a person to lose consciousness.

And because Benzo is not an opioid, Naloxone which can reverse an overdose does not work on it.
