At least four people are dead and dozens more have been hospitalized after overdosing on what authorities say are ‘fake’ Percocet pills.

The drug is being sold on the streets and can be laced with other drugs which can be deadly.

A Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) spokesperson said reports of overdoses are still coming in and the number of fatalities could increase, reported.

GBI spokesperson Nelly Miles told the news outlet that over the past 48 hours emergency workers in Macon, Centerville, Perry, Warner Robins and Albany responded to overdose calls and found people unconscious and not breathing. Some had to be placed on a ventilator, reported.

Whatever the substance is, it is “extremely potent and has required massive doses of naloxone (Narcan) to counteract its effects,” the Georgia Department of Public Health said in a statement Tuesday.

The victims reportedly ingested a “yellow pill,” which authorities have not yet definitely identified.  The Georgia Department of Public Health called the pills “extremely potent” and warned that while the overdoses are concentrated in the middle and southern areas of the state, the drugs may be sold elsewhere, reported.

Opioid overdoses, including prescription drugs and heroin, killed more than 33,000 people in 2015, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). More than half of the fatalities involved a prescription opioid, Fox News reported.

This is an epidemic unlike we have ever seen. Families are being destroyed. Parents are losing their children because of this nightmare. These pills are very expensive and many people are choosing to use heroin which costs much less and is easily available thanks to the open border policies of Obama and his liberal minions.
