Powerful Synthetic Drugs Found At Prince's Home


(Classic Rock) Synthetic drugs 50 times stronger than heroin were found at Prince's home in the days after his death. It has been reported by the Guardian and others that a source close to the investigation told the Associated Press that pills falsely labeled as 'Watson 385' actually contained fentanyl, a synthetic opioid many times stronger than heroin.

Watson 385 is used to identify pills containing a mix of acetaminophen and hydrocodone. About 12 tablets were found in a dressing room at Prince's Paisley Park, with others found in bottles of Vitamin C and aspirin inside a suitcase and bags.

Autopsy results released in June showed that Prince died on April 21 of an accidental fentanyl overdose. How the musician got the drugs is still being investigated. Read more here.
