COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTRF) – Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost is leading a bipartisan coalition to reclassify fentanyl-related substances.
The attorneys general of every U.S. state and territory are asking Congress to make the synthetic opioid a ‘Schedule 1’ drug.
That category is for drugs with no currently known medical use and that have a high potential to be abused.
Officials hope it will allow law enforcement to stop the trafficking of the deadly and highly addictive substance.
