On Senator Marshall’s Statewide Fentanyl Awareness Campaign: 

One pill can kill. One tablet of fentanyl can kill a person.”

“As our students are going back to school this week and next week, we want to make sure everyone across the state of Kansas, across the state of Missouri, in your listening area, understands that no one is immune to this.”

On Cooper Davis, a Young Kansas Teen Who Lost His Life to Fentanyl:

“Everyone thinks, ‘well it can’t be my child,’ and that’s what Cooper’s parents thought. It couldn’t be my child that would do this. But it is just so easy to get the fentanyl tablets.”

“It is easier in the state of Kansas, the state of Missouri, in the Kansas City metro area to get a fentanyl tablet, and cheaper than it is to order pizza online.”
