Report: Children Under 14 Dying from Fentanyl Poisoning at Faster Rate than Any Other Age Group


Children under age 14 are dying from fentanyl poisoning at a faster rate than any other age

group, according to a new analysis from Families Against Fentanyl. In the past two years, synthetic opioid (fentanyl) deaths among children surged.
