Studying fentanyl-related substances could be the key to addressing the ongoing overdose crisis. It would allow lifesaving medical research into these substances that may have potential to reverse overdoses and address the harsh criminal penalties that have unfairly impacted Black and brown people due to targeted policing.
Unfortunately, a Trump-era policy has stood in the way which created severe criminal penalties for all fentanyl-related substances based on fear instead of health or evidence.
Politicians are trying to make this policy permanent. Congress must decide the fate by the end of the year and now we need your help to fight back.
The TEST Act is the first step toward putting science and facts first. It would require testing of fentanyl-related substances and allow research of potentially lifesaving medications to curb the overdose crisis. Tell your Senators to support this new bill to find new solutions that will save lives!
