Fentanyl's Lethal Grip

“Fentanyl is everywhere – from large metropolitan areas to rural America; no community is safe from this poison. We must take every opportunity to spread the word to prevent Fentanyl-related overdose deaths and poisonings from claiming scores of American lives every day.”

– Anne Milgram
DEA Administrator
