BRATTLEBORO — Police say after warning the public back in November of potentially fentanyl-laced marijuana circulating in the area, none of it tested positive for the substance.

On November 21, Brattleboro police released a public safety message related to a potential overdose suffered by someone who had smoked marijuana.

In that message, police stated that some remaining marijuana had tested positively for fentanyl using a presumptive field test.

On November 30, BPD participated in a search warrant with the DEA where marijuana suspected of containing fentanyl was seized.

Today police say the seized marijuana in both incidents was submitted to a forensic laboratory where testing was conducted, and no fentanyl was found in the marijuana in either case.
