Killer drug  
The American media love to panic over drugs. Being somewhat old, I have lost count of the number of substances that are reported to give superhuman strength to their users. Fentanyl is a really nasty drug, like heroin only stronger (and, like Oxycontin, produced by corporate rather than officially criminal users), and the media have risen to the occasion by making it sound even worse. No, touching it won’t kill you. [Reason; CW: libertarian cooties]

Thanx to RAW Illumination.

I remember the story about the Ohio officer; there's been a few in my state as well. Seems extremely suspect that these stories would have been pushed when the scientific community finds it preposterous - unless of course there was a motive for pushing them. Can't fathom what it might be, but why else?
