GRAND FORKS, ND (WDAZ-TV) - Some parents are reaching out, and are concerned their kids could be taking this deadly drug behind their backs.

Furanyl fentanyI is up to 100 times more potent than morphine.

Late last week, a Grand Forks man was arrested for having it in an eye-dropper.

Addiction counselors say that form of consumption is not unusual.

This drug can be found in everything from bottles to pills.

Often those pills are crushed into powder, and those powders and can sometimes be found in patches placed on the skin.

Deborah Davis, Northeast Human Service Center: "If you're seeing patches, pain patches in the garbage or something and your child or your family member says oh that was so and so's, you know those are things to look for."

Furanyl fentanyl is extremely dangerous.

If your child is using eye drops more frequently, Davis says that could be a sign of use and you should get them emergency care.
