Published:
September 29, 2021

Please see the following urgent press release and Counterfeit Pills Fact Sheet below from the DEA regarding fake prescription drugs. Several individuals have lost their kids to these fake pills. Kids are seeing these and buying them on social media, thinking they are like Zanax or ADHD medicine.  They arenā€™t trying to get high, they are just thinking this might help with anxiety, or help them with studying. Instead, they are fentanyl pills, and these kids end up dead.
