Obama Administration Refused to Declare Public Health Emergency for Fentanyl

The Washington Post on Wednesday published a searing indictment of the Obama administration for disregarding a plea from health experts to declare a public health emergency for overdoses from fentanyl, the powerful synthetic opioid that was already racking up a body count in 2016 and would go on to kill thousands of people over the next three years.

The federal judge declined to offer his views on merits of the lawsuit, only saying that the plaintiffs technically have the right to sue. File Photo by Kamil Krzaczynski/UPI
