Fentanyl and Drug Overdose Deaths

To date, 13 of 33 death inquests ruled accidental have involved a drug overdose. That’s roughly 40% of all accidental deaths that I alone have handled as JP this year. In 2021, 26 of 61, or 42%, of accidental deaths were drug-related. The other JPs no doubt have similar numbers. The primary drugs of choice are fentanyl, methamphetamine, and alcohol, either alone or in combination. In fact, most overdose deaths I see are from multiple drug toxicity.
