    Bravo! Our citizens who are "hurting" do not need the false hope of those drugs--they need love, work, and safe places to live.

    Fentanyl is a poison. Any non-medical person who sells, gives or otherwise conveys fentanyl to another person should be charged with either murder or attempted murder, as appropriate. If the person who receives it takes it and dies then it is clearly murder.
