(CBS) — There’s an overwhelming effort to educate Americans about the dangers of fentanyl.
The federal government’s High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area program is partnering with local communities to screen a documentary on the topic. Also, bringing in experts to answer questions.
Monday night’s event took place at Texas Woman’s University in Denton.
At the free event, Retired DEA Special Agent in Charge Keith Brown told attendees pills laced with fentanyl are being seized by law enforcement daily.
“It’s incredible how many millions of pills flow across the Southwest border every day,” he said.
“Do not, do not, do not take anything that you don’t know — you personally do not know came from your doctor and your pharmacy. If you don’t do that, fentanyl can’t kill you.”Retired DEA Special Agent in Charge Keith Brown
