Fentanyl is a very potent opiate that is used to treat severe pain, thus, the FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth.

Ref: Medline Plus Fentanyl

This is the first I've heard of this policy, Has this happened to anyone else? If so, please chime in.

As to why, it could be due to the damages to the respiratory system that smoking causes, coupling that with the respiratory depression pain medications induce can be risky, in some situations.
