On Senator Marshall’s Statewide #OnePillCanKill Fentanyl Awareness Campaign: 

“One fake pill laced with fentanyl can kill. Across the state of Kansas, we’re seeing young adults, students order online a Xanax tablet, Adderall, Percocet. It’s laced with fentanyl, even marijuana now, is laced with fentanyl. It’s across the country. We’re getting real poisoning. We’re using Narcan 10 or 15 times every day across the state. Otherwise we’d be losing dozens more.”

“I’ve been to the border four times. And every time I’ve just seen the situation worsen there. And I knew that we were going to be in this crisis epidemic. So four or five years ago, we started launching this fentanyl awareness issue.”

“It’s so bad across the nation that everybody is understanding the impact of it is now. It’s easier and cheaper in the state of Kansas to order a fentanyl tablet than it is a slice of pizza. Your student, your child, your grandchild can get online on Snapchat and order a fentanyl tablet. It’ll be delivered to their house.”
