Lamar Alexander says Congress Would Save Lives of Thousands of Tennesseans by Controlling All Forms of Fentanyl

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) cosponsored bipartisan legislation that would designate all types of fentanyl as Schedule 1 narcotics.

Fentanyl – a synthetic opioid that can be 50 times stronger than heroin – was the leading cause of these opioid related deaths.” Alexander said. “The opioid crisis is ravaging Tennessee communities, and permanently designating all forms of fentanyl as controlled substances, which the bill I cosponsored does, will save thousands of lives.”
