OKLAHOMA CITY -

The Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics (OBN) is warning against a new, potentially deadly drug on the streets.

Its black market fentanyl called "pink" and addicts unable to score prescription pills are being exposed to it in other ways.

"We are seeing more and more heroin cut with something that boost the strength," said OBN spokesman Mark Woodward.

"Pink" is actually not banned in Oklahoma.

"Its so new, it's just not on the books yet," said Woodward.

"Pink" can be compressed into pills that make it look like other forms of prescription pain medication.

At least two Oklahomans have overdosed specifically on "pink."

OBN said it will work with lawmakers this legislative session to ban "pink"

Earlier this year, three people found dead inside an Oklahoma City home had overdosed on fentanyl.

Woodward said cases like that don't scare users but have the opposite effect.

"If it's strong enough to kill them, it's strong enough to get back to that point they are chasing," said Woodward.
