An online portal will soon allow people to purchase fentanyl test strips. Officials with the Pennsylvania Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs say the idea behind the strips is to reduce harm to people who use drugs and possibly keep them from dying. Illegally manufactured Fentanyl is extremely potent and can be deadly when mixed in with other drugs. Drug users can apply the strips to detect fentanyl in cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin. If fentanyl is found, officials say a user can then choose to discard the drugs. Earlier this year, Pennsylvania passed a new law that makes buying and carrying fentanyl test strips legal. State officials hope to have the new portal in place by early fall.
