Police in Canada are cracking down on a growing drug trend among teens that could be making its way into the U.S.

Officials said teens are using a new drug called desmethyl fentanyl. 

The pills tend to be colorful and small but they contain a dangerous mixture of chemicals.

The drug is 80 times more potent than morphine and 40 times the strength of heroin. 

In fact, officials said the pills are so strong a few officers suffered mild injuries just by coming in contact with the drugs.

Experts said they are still trying to figure out what makes the pills so dangerous.
