SOMEONE DIES FROM FENTANYL POISONING EVERY 9 MINUTES
Hundreds of people die daily in the United States from illicit fentanyl poisoning. Fentanyl-related deaths occur approximately every nine minutes. Tracking of deaths and poisonings has been insufficient and we believe the available data falls short of the actuality of the current crisis. States like Colorado have experienced a 1008% increase in a six-year time span since 2015.We need to approach this fentanyl emergency different that drugs of the past. As the drug landscape changes, we must change with it. We need to be stronger in our efforts to attack the devastation that is impacting Americans.
