Illicit distribution of Fentanyl, a synthetic opioid, is plaguing the country and killing children and young adults who unknowingly consume the drug after buying counterfeit prescription pills or street drugs, like cocaine and marijuana.

“This is a mass poisoning killing our kids at record levels,” Maltz says.
 
“Our teens and our young adults are being deceived to death,” Webb adds. “It is terrifying, and we can prevent this.”
