Montreal police on lookout for potent black market pill
Desmethyl fentanyl is reported to be 40 times stronger than heroin and 80 times stronger than morphine

In late April, Montreal police raided seven locations in Montreal, seizing more than 300,000 tablets of illegally-produced synthetic prescription drugs, including Viagra and Cialis.
