Capitol Crimes: A Lethal Dose of Reality

In the most recent episode of the Illinois House Republicans’ podcast, Capitol Crimes, lawmakers discuss their efforts to combat illicit fentanyl and protect children from its dangers.

House Minority Leader Tony McCombie has been advocating to curb the fentanyl epidemic and has backed a number of bills this term to fight the deadly drug which is being distributed across the country including here in Illinois. Sold on the illegal drug market, Fentanyl is often mixed with other illicit drugs to increase its potency. It is sold as powders and nasal sprays, and increasingly pressed into pills made to look like legitimate prescription opioids or rainbow colored tablets that look like candy.

Check out the recent episode, which includes Leader McCombie’s input on the tragic reality of fentanyl: A Lethal Dose of Reality.
