National Fentanyl Awareness Day

(Sioux Falls, SD) — It’s National Fentanyl Awareness Day, and South Dakota leaders are raising awareness about the deadly drug. Minnehaha County Sheriff Mike Milstead says “the uncontrolled flow of fentanyl across our southwest border” is what’s impacting the city and the county. He says the results of a one-year DEA investigation, called “Operation Last Mile,” blamed two Mexican drug cartels for the “vast majority” of fentanyl in the U.S. Sioux Falls Police Chief Jon Thum says families, law enforcement, and nonprofits need to work together to tackle the overdose epidemic. He said, “You don’t get to make a second mistake with fentanyl.”
