*Synopsis | High Alert: Update (2024)*
Two weeks ago, 60 MINUTES reported on the emerging threat of nitazenes, highly potent synthetic opioids which can be up to a thousand times stronger than morphine. The day after our story was broadcast, her warning about these illicit drugs, many of which are manufactured in Chinese labs, was validated in the worst possible way. Four people inside a home in Melbourne, including a 17-year-old boy, died after taking cocaine, not knowing it was laced with nitazenes. It’s a tragic and senseless waste of life, but as Clancey reports, the Australian Federal Police, as well as other law enforcement agencies, are now determined to stop the influx of nitazenes into the country.
