AG Knudsen is stepping up the fight against illegal fentanyl in Montana. He has now increased the number of Montana Department of Justice narcotic and major case agents, added a statewide drug intelligence officer who assists local law enforcement and public health agencies, and spearheaded a grant program that helped deploy two dozen drug detecting K9s around the state.

“Fentanyl is being produced in industrial-scale cartel labs in Mexico from Chinese-made materials before its smuggled into the United States. Mexican cartels have also started targeting young people with rainbow fentanyl that is made to look like candy,” AG Knudsen said. “One pill can kill.”
