Lamar Alexander says Tightened Restrictions on Fentanyl Will Save Thousands of Tennesseans

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) released the following statement on legislation that passed in the Senate to designate all forms of illegal fentanyl as Schedule 1 narcotics. 

“Last year, more Tennesseans died from opioid overdoses than were killed in car crashes. And the leading cause of these opioid related deaths was fentanyl – a synthetic opioid that is 50 times more potent than heroin,” Senator Alexander said. “The opioid crisis is ravaging Tennessee communities, and by designating all forms of illegal fentanyl as Schedule I controlled substances, this bill will save thousands of Tennessee lives.”
