    DEA says it is being sold as heroin and the users might not even know it is Fentanyl. DEA also says not to field test it, or test back at our station, but to take it straight to a lab. How are we to know it is Fentanyl if it looks like heroin, the user thinks it is heroin and we don’t field test it?

      That’s a good question. If opiates would normally go to the lab for testing anyway, I think the answer is to take all suspected heroin directly to the lab and skip presumptives or the PD. When lab results come back, then charge the bad guy accordingly.
