It can be used in the form of powder, granules, or fumes. If swallowed, it causes nausea, vomiting, and internal bleeding in the stomach and intestines. It then damages the liver, spleen, and kidneys and impairs blood circulation, leading to death.

According to the news, a woman suspected of sending a toxic parcel has been arrested at the border while entering the United States from Canada. Law enforcement says the woman also had a pistol. The woman is being detained and further interrogated.
