Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is up to 50 times stronger than heroin and 100 times stronger than morphine. Fentanyl produced illegally is a major contributor to fatal and nonfatal overdoses in the United States. Since illegally made fentanyl is often mixed in with other illegal drugs including counterfeit pills, it is showing up in the drug supply and in communities, increasing the likelihood of an overdose. Our recent fentanyl campaign helps educate the public about fentanyl-driven overdoses through sharable resources developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The campaign resources include factsheets, videos, social media ads, and much more to explain the dangers of fentanyl and share ways to protect yourself, like using fentanyl test strips and carrying the lifesaving medication naloxone.


Most vapes, including JUUL, contain nicotine. Nicotine is highly addictive. As you vape more, your brain and body become accustomed to nicotine, making it harder to stop. The nicotine level in your bloodstream drops when you stop vaping, causing unpleasant feelings, physical symptoms, and strong cravings to vape.
