ATLANTA (FOX Carolina) -

Investigators with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation are warning of dangerous and deadly counterfeit pills that can be absorbed through the skin.

GBI officials described the transdermal drugs Tuesday at a meeting of the Metro Atlanta Drug Enforcement Commanders.

The pills are called “Graveyard Dead.”

GBI Director Vernon Keenan said the drugs contain strong doses of fentanyl and other synthetic opioids.

The pills can cause inadvertent overdoses just by making skin contact, officials said.
