Last year, we had the meth burrito, this year, some enterprising traveler found a way to make what comes in candy wrappers even more addictive. On October 19, just in time for Halloween, someone attempted to sneak in the powerful synthetic opiate Fentanyl through security in Sweetarts, Skittles, and Whoppers wrappers, according to NPR. The suspect fled, but his identity is known to law enforcement.

In an early contender for understatement of 2023, Fentanyl is seriously bad news. An incredible 110, 236 Americans died due to Fentanyl overdose in the U.S. during a 12-month period, according to the CDC. TSA spokesperson told NPR that this manner of sneaking in drugs has unfortunately become common among traffickers.
