October is Fentanyl Poison Awareness
House Bill (HB) 3144 (88th Texas Legislature, Regular Session, 2023) establishes the month of October as Fentanyl Poisoning Awareness Month to increase awareness of the dangers of fentanyl and potential overdoses.
New fentanyl-related legislation was passed during the 88th Texas Legislature to raise awareness of fentanyl poisonings and to promote prevention efforts. Specifically, students and families need to know that other drugs may contain a deadly level of fentanyl. It is almost impossible to see, taste, or smell fentanyl which makes it difficult to detect without proper testing. “One Pill Kills” is set up across the State to educate Texans on how to prevent, recognize, and reverse fentanyl poisoning. Links for communication and education are below.
