Giving Compass’ Take:
• Bryce Pardo explains how the illicit supply of fentanyl flows into the United States and what it means for overdoes deaths.
• How can funders use this information to guide efforts to curb overdose deaths?
• Learn about tackling drug-related deaths.
The drivers behind U.S. overdose deaths have changed in the last ten years. Today’s problem largely comes from illicitly manufactured synthetic opioid powders, particularly fentanyl, much of which comes from China. Congress and executive agencies will need to look beyond available drug policy tools when considering responses.
