A police officer in East Liverpool, Ohio, collapsed and was rushed to the hospital after he brushed fentanyl residue off his uniform, allowing the drug to enter his system through his hands. The officer had apparently encountered the opioid earlier in the day while making a drug bust.
"This is scary. He could have walked out of the building and left and he could have passed out while he was driving. You don't even know it's there on his clothes," East Liverpool Police Chief John Lane told CNN.

Errr .5-1 mcg per kg. Usually delivered doses between 25-50 for initial sedating dose. Maybe he chewed on a fentanyl patch? Nurses have dropped dead doing that.

Watched too many Hollywood movies, arrested dealer, confiscated product, used knife to open bag to see what the white powder was...
The question is whether he took the powder on a dare, by curiosity, of just by cleaning his tool...
