“It appears to me that illegally manufactured fentanyl is being lumped in with legal prescription opioids, accounting for the apparently huge one-year increase in opioid-related overdose deaths. I’m very concerned that this inappropriate lumping could result in even greater pressure on opioid prescribing, further increasing the access problems we’ve been hearing so much about.” – Bob Twillman, Executive Director of the American Academy of Pain Management
