The Drug Enforcement Administration is warning people about fake prescription drugs being sold on the black market.
- The administration made its first public safety alert in six years today to tell people that the counterfeit pills, which look like oxycodone, Percocet or Adderall, may contain a potentially lethal dose of fentanyl.
- The warning comes as drug overdoses increase in the United States.
- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says more than 93-thousand Americans died of drug overdoses last year, which is more than ever before.
