Запрет наркотиков здорового человека

Guardian -- Dark web dealers voluntarily ban deadly fentanyl. Vince O’Brien, one of the NCA’s leads on drugs, told the Observer that dark web marketplace operators appeared to have made a commercial decision, because selling a drug that could lead to fatalities was more likely to prompt attention from police. It is the first known instance of these types of operators moving to effectively ban a drug.
But fentanyl has higher therapeutic index than e.g. heroin (by an order of magnitude, I think), and yet apparently nobody's banning heroin.
As far as I understand, it is a lot easier to overdose with fentanyl -- not sure what the underlying mechanism is.
