(Spectrum News) — Texas will be recognizing Fentanyl Poisoning Awareness Month in October in an effort to bring more attention to the dangers of the lethal drug. The new designation is part of one of four fentanyl-related bills passed during the 88th regular legislative session.
That includes HB 3908, which will require public schools educate students in grade 6 through 12 on fentanyl abuse prevention and drug poisoning awareness.
Turner’s mission to enhance awareness didn’t stop there. The nonprofit is now taking on the task of creating researched-based instruction to provide to Texas schools.
