Youngkin Launches Comprehensive Plan To Battle Fentanyl Epidemic
Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin is launching a comprehensive plan to fight Virginia’s Fentanyl epidemic. According to the DEA, the Fentanyl epidemic is both a national security concern as well as a serious public health emergency. Youngkin’s Executive Order 26 directs the launch of a new comprehensive fentanyl-fighting strategy across public safety, prevention, education and treatment. Youngkin says Fentanyl poisoning has devastated families and communities across the Commonwealth and Virginia cannot stand by as Virginian’s lose their lives when there are steps that can be taken to combat the crisis.
