Lawmakers say the fentanyl that has killed many Americans is from China

News

Lawmakers say most of the illegal synthetic drug fentanyl that has killed so many Americans was manufactured and smuggled into the US from China.  

Looking to crack down on it, Republican Senator Patrick Toomey of Pennsylvania, the Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, and others have joined together to sponsor the Fentanyl Sanctions Act. 

Reports say it would put pressure on the Chinese government to follow-through and stop the deadly flow of Fentanyl into the US at its source.
