Fentanyl seizure had enough doses to poison all of NYC and New Jersey

Two men have been sentenced to prison for possessing nearly 100 pounds of the drug fentanyl — enough to kill the entire population of New Jersey and New York City, officials said.
Fentanyl is a powerful opioid that is 50 to 100 times more potent than morphineand 30 to 50 times more potent than heroin, and a dose as small as a quarter of a milligram can be fatal.
New Jersey authorities said that the 45 kilos of fentanyl, seized in June 2017, contained more than 18 million lethal doses. It was the largest seizure ever in the state.
