The USPS deals with millions of packages a day, but does it know what’s in each package?

“There is so much mail coming in, they try to go after the different packages,” said Special Agent Brian Boyle. Brian Boyle is in charge of the New England area. He says in Massachusetts, people are able to buy fentanyl and carfentanyl on the dark web. “Fentanyl is very dangerous. It’s very cheap when you buy it through the dark web,” said Boyle. The drugs are being shipped unknowingly by USPS from China.
