Sherrod’s FEND Off Fentanyl Act Will “Make a Difference,” Protect Ohioans from Dangerous Fentanyl

COLUMBUS, OH – This week, the Intelligencer editorial board praised Sherrod for  passing the FEND Off Fentanyl Act and “mak[ing] a difference” to keep Ohioans safe from dangerous fentanyl by cracking down on the chemical suppliers in China and drug traffickers in Mexico. Sherrod worked with Republicans for months to get his legislation over the “finish line” to protect Ohioans, which stands in “bright contrast” to Bernie Moreno, who said he “reject[s]” bipartisanship and opposed the FEND Off Fentanyl Act.

Ohio law enforcement and medical professionals have applauded Sherrod for his “year-long” fight against the fentanyl crisis.

The Intelligencer: ‘FEND’ Off Fentanyl in Ohio

Editorial Board – June 14, 2024

  • Battling the substance abuse epidemic that has crippled Appalachia is a multi-faceted fight. Among the tools requested by law enforcement has been a way to help stop the flood of fentanyl at its source. U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, has finally managed to get something done about that.
  • With the FEND Off Fentanyl Act, the president will now have the ability to sanction drug traffickers and gangs.
  • “The FEND Off Fentanyl Act is a sanctions and anti-money laundering bill to help combat the country’s fentanyl crisis by targeting opioid traffickers devastating America’s communities,” reads the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs one-pager on the act. “The bill will enhance current law so U.S. government agencies can more effectively disrupt illicit opioid supply chains and penalize those facilitating the trafficking of fentanyl. The bill also ensures that sanctions are imposed not only on the illicit drug trade, but also on the money laundering that makes it profitable.”
  • Brown worked with U.S. Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., to bring the bill to the finish line.
  • FEND should make a difference for the Buckeye State and other states battling this monster
