"Dear colleagues, Fentanyl, this well-known analgesic drug was synthesized in early 50’s and used from then on. It is a synthetic opioid that is up to 50 times stronger than heroin and 100 times stronger than morphine. I wanted to bring to your attention the alarming issue surrounding the misuse and abuse of fentanyl globally. The rise in fentanyl-related incidents is deeply concerning and requires immediate attention. As we navigate these challenging times, it's crucial for us to collectively raise awareness about the dangers of fentanyl and work towards implementing preventive measures. Whether through educational programs, community outreach, or policy initiatives, it is our responsibility to tackle this problem head-on. By fostering open conversations and promoting understanding, we can contribute to a safer and healthier community. Together, we can make a meaningful impact and protect the well-being of our community. Dear colleagues, This is the last JMS issue that I will be the editor of that is why I wanted to mention about this danger once it is related to my area of expertise. As I bid farewell to this chapter of my journey, I want to express my deepest gratitude for the incredible experiences, shared moments, and valuable lessons learned during our time together with all my collaborators. Working alongside such talented and dedicated individuals has been an honor and a source of inspiration. I will undoubtedly miss the warmth and camaraderie of this amazing team. Thank you for being a part of my journey. Wishing continued success for our JMS Warm regards,
