Deaths caused by the toxic drug fentanyl have skyrocketed in California—particularly for teens and young adults. We must take immediate action to stop these tragic deaths.
Just two milligrams of fentanyl (that’s like two grains of salt!) can kill. Fentanyl poisoning has become a public health emergency, with deaths increasing by 541% in the past 3 years. Current California law treats fentanyl as less serious than cocaine or heroin—leading to this sharp increase in fentanyl imports and fentanyl deaths. It is time we treat fentanyl as seriously as its consequences.
That’s why I have authored Assembly Bill 2246 which will appropriately align penalties for fentanyl trafficking and cut this deadly drug off at its source.
