On Thursday, January 31, 2019, victims of counterfeit medicines and their families, local law enforcement, former DEA agents, and other experts in the fight against counterfeit medicines met for a discussion about the widespread impact fake drugs are having on communities and on the enormous burden the problem places on regulators who are responsible for our drug safety.

Since last year's briefing in April 2018, the number of states reporting fake counterfeit medicine laced with fentanyl or fentanyl analogues has risen from 43 to 46. 29 of those states have linked deaths to the drugs.
