Government Drops Bombshell News About America’s Greatest Threat – NOT COVID!
(FeaturedNews.com) – Overdose deaths due to fentanyl have become a major plague in the US in recent years. The issue has touched every state. On May 9, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) issued a press release announcing the nation’s first National Fentanyl Awareness Day for May 10 to bring attention to the problem.
The DEA noted that it wishes to reduce the demand for fentanyl by making people more aware of its dangers. Administrator Anne Milgram explained it is the “single deadliest drug threat” the country has ever experienced. She went on to say nobody is safe. There are no areas left unaffected in the country.

Milgram also stated that “drug traffickers are increasingly mixing it with other types of drugs.” They do so to help keep people addicted, so users will continue to buy more substances.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the nation saw over 100,000 deaths from drug overdoses from April 2020 to April 2021. Opioids were the leading cause in most cases, with the main culprit being fentanyl.
Fox News reported the drug is 50 times more potent than heroin and 100 times stronger than morphine. Most people are unaware they are taking it, which often leads to overdoses.
The DEA also announced it released a video in honor of National Fentanyl Awareness Day. The agency also has an exhibit, “The Faces of Fentanyl,” in its museum to observe the lives lost to the drug. It also encourages the public to submit the names and photos of their loved ones who died due to fentanyl overdoses.
Do you know anyone who has been adversely impacted by Fentanyl use?
