It looks like a chunk of concrete, can kill with one dose, and it’s got an ominous name — Gray Death.

And it’s the latest killer drug cocktail making headlines in the ongoing war against the national opioid crisis.

So far, it’s been limited to the Gulf Coast and states like Georgia and Ohio and “we are monitoring the potential spread of this deadly combination of drugs,” Russ Baer of the federal Drug Enforcement Agency told NBC News.

“We’ve not yet seen a national proliferation of the ‘gray death’ substance,” the DEA spokesman wrote.

But even as law enforcement is focusing on Gray Death, drug dealers are hard at work on even more lethal drug cocktails made from opioids that are smuggled into the country from Mexico or shipped in by mail from China.
