(Helena, MT) — Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen says there are major concerns about the rise in fentanyl seizures across the state. Speaking to NBC Montana, Knudsen said they’ve encountered something new during those seizures, and that’s fentanyl in powder form. He explained it can be lethal if it gets into the air and is breathed in by those around it. His comments come after announcing last month an eleven-thousand percent increase in fentanyl seizures in Montana. Knudsen argued officials at the federal level need to get serious about drugs at the southern border and to make sure Montanans are educated about the impacts of fentanyl.
