Interior Health has sent out a toxic drug alert for Cranbrook following increased reports of poisonings.

IH officials said the substances look like white powder or red/pink rock that is being sold as down, heroin or fentanyl.

The drug alert is in place until Saturday, Feb. 18th.

IH encourages people who use drugs to get their substances tested, a service offered locally by ANKORS.

“Only drug checking can tell you if there are contaminants in your drugs,” said IH officials.

The health authority emphasized the importance of carrying a naloxone kit and knowing how to use it, downloading the LifeGuard app, and avoiding using substances alone.
