Over the past few years the number of overdose deaths in America has risen at an alarming rate. More than 107,000 people died last year alone from overdoses, a record-high. Fentanyl, in particular, is largely responsible for the rapid increase.

She talked about how the drug problem has changed since her years as the New Jersey Attorney General, and what the DEA is doing to combat it.
