US-HEALTH-DRUGS

Leonardo Dominguez Gomez, field researcher with the New York City Department of Health, holds up drug tests used to detect the presence of fentanyl and xylazine in different kinds of drugs, such as cocaine, methamphetamine, and heroin, at St. Ann's Corner of Harm Reduction in New York City on May 25, 2023. The tranquillizer, approved for veterinary use by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), has infiltrated the illegal drugs market in the US, with producers increasingly using it to augment fentanyl. Overdose deaths where tranq was detected have soared in recent years and in April the White House designated the drug an "emerging threat."
