Fentanyl is now officially the deadliest drug in America, CDC declares: The drug killed more than 18,000 in 2016 - with overdose rates rising 113% a year

Fentanyl is the deadliest drug in the US, a new CDC report revealed today.
A report last week showed drug overdoses climbed again last year, largely driven by fentanyl use.
But new data released today reveal just how quickly fentanyl has taken hold of (and decimated) America.
The drug - 100 times stronger than heroin - killed at least 18,335 Americans in 2016, the latest year for which we have data.
And that figure is set to climb. The report also revealed that between 2013 and 2016, overdoses from fentanyl rose 113 percent a year.
