Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Chief says son nearly died from cocaine laced with fentanyl

The Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention revealed why he has a personal stake in fighting the current opioid epidemic: His son almost died from using cocaine laced with the synthetic opioid called fentanyl.

On average, in the United States, 115 people die every day from an opioid overdose, the CDC said … The CDC researchers attributed much of the increase to the rise in deaths from synthetic opioids not including methadone, which includes the illegally-manufactured fentanyl. Synthetic opioid deaths rose from 9,580 in 2015 to more than 19,000 in 2016, the report showed.
