ST. MARY'S PARISH, LA — Louisiana officials are reporting a dangerous drug in the area.

The St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office said that they made a couple arrests after finding a drug called "gray death" in the area.

Gray death is a lethal combination of some of the most deadly opioids including heroin, fentanyl, and various fentanyl analogues. It is reported to have a potency 10,000 times greater than morphine.

The unidentified super drug began to surface in the south in Alabama and Georgia. A minuscule amount of this drug, which has the appearance of small chunks of concrete, can kill.

The sample in the photos was recovered from suspects that were traveling across St. Mary Parish from the Lake Charles area.

The public is advised to never pick up or touch this drug if you ever encounter it and to call and report it to law enforcement.

Officials say the drug is so powerful, just touching it could kill you.
