One Pill Can Kill – The Fentanyl Crisis and What Every Person in Hastings Must Know
Overdoses and drug poisonings are now the leading cause of deaths in Americans ages 18 – 45. Fentanyl is the cause of most of those deaths.
Fentanyl is in Hastings. It’s being added to all kinds of street drugs. Young people might buy a pill for the first time from social media…or take a pill at a party because a friend offers them one. Fentanyl can be deadly, even in tiny amounts.
On April 26, May 3, and May 10, join the United Way of Hastings, the Dakota County Drug Task Force, Hastings Police Dept, parents, recovery specialists, and others to learn more.
