Research conducted recently has named the United Kingdom as having the highest fentanyl sales throughout all of Europe. It has been discovered, due to the aforementioned research, more than one thousand sales of the synthetic opioid have taken place in just a few months.
The National Crime Agency has been quite vigilant in warning the public about this dangerous drug and the majority is aware of the dangers. However, addicts care nothing about the warnings and continue to use the drug. While most people are buying fentanyl on the street, the dealers of the drug have taken to the Dark Web for purchasing in bulk.

While other countries have seen a much larger rise in fentanyl related crimes such as Australia, Canada and the United States taking the lead, the UK accounts for the most in Europe.
Opioid addiction is a serious problem and law enforcement everywhere have stopped at nothing to combat the issue. Targeting illegal drug dealing Dark Web marketplaces seems to be helping at a tremendous rate, the methods for which these criminals are buying and selling the drugs are constantly evolving. In order to alleviate this rise in drug trafficking, authorities have taken to forming numerous task forces and performing covert operations to take down illegal distributors.

It is a matter of public safety that this sort of drug trafficking is fought against and there is absolutely no sign of law enforcement backing down any time soon.
