Attorney General Patrick Morrisey is renewing a request that Congress classify fentanyl as a “weapon of mass destruction” as part of his battle for tougher legislation against the opioid epidemic.
Morrisey made the announcement during a Monday conference calling for more federal action.
“This is a story worth paying attention to. Focus on the families of the victims, because that’s the way we’re going to turn this around,” Morrisey said.
He invited families of those who have died from fentanyl poisoning to speak about their experiences to drive his point home.
