Fentanyl webinar planned
Casa Grande Alliance will host a Lunch and Learn webinar focused on the rise of fentanyl use in Arizona. Statewide there is a spike in overdoses and overdose deaths related to fentanyl. There is no sign of the new trend slowing down. Thousands of counterfeit pills have been confiscated by law enforcement — pills that contain potentially deadly amounts of fentanyl. Fentanyl and counterfeit pills can be found across the state and in every community. The webinar begins at noon Wednesday, July 21, and will help people better understand the drug and come together to take action for the youth of the community. To register email email@example.com.
