Most of the fentanyl coming into the U.S. is no longer being sent through the mail from China. Instead, China is shipping it to Mexico, where it's manufactured in labs and smuggled over the border, according to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).    

Law enforcement officers point to the amount of it funneling across the border as the nation's single deadliest drug threat.    

"Chinese criminals are exporting these chemicals into Mexico so Mexican cartels can distribute this poison as counterfeit pills. The whole point is to drive addiction and make a profit," said Lt. Chris Olivarez of the Texas Department of Safety.    

Sold as powder or pill, fentanyl is 100 times stronger than morphine, 50 times more potent than heroin, and cheaper to mass produce.  Even a tiny amount of it can be lethal.
