#TestIt Alert Issued for Laval, Quebec, Canada & the General Public
A blotter tab was sent to a lab from Laval, Quebec, Canada which could have easily been mistaken as LSD, but tested as carfentanil.
This blotter tab was decorated with the famous “Albert Hofmann Bicycle Ride” print. Lab results came back as carfentanil, a synthetic opioid with approximately 100 times the potency by weight of fentanyl. This marks the third time DanceSafe has become aware of carfentanil being detected on blotter paper. We do not know what the original blotter tab was sold as, however, this is of concern as this print has been used to distribute LSD for decades and could be easily mistaken to be LSD.
We urge our community to keep in mind that drug markets are expansive and these substances may appear in locations other than the submission’s origin. Always test before you ingest to avoid ingesting a misrepresented substance! In cases such as these, DanceSafe recommends the use of both a fentanyl test strip and an Ehrlich reagent. Purchase your DanceSafe drug checking kit here.
If you test a misrepresented substance, submit your drug checking results to us to be featured in a #TestIt Alert.
