Drug overdose deaths exceed 90,000 annually in the United States, due to abuse of prescription drug abuse and illegal drugs:

Nearly 92,000 persons in the U.S. died from drug-involved overdose in 2020, including illicit drugs and prescription opioids.[1]

Illegal fentanyl use -- most of it associated with a southern open border -- has become the single biggest cause of drug overdose deaths.

The lethality of the illicit drug supply appears to have driven an exponential rise in the overdose death rate among U.S. teens amid the COVID-19 pandemic – an increase that’s come without a parallel surge in drug use itself.[2]

Addiction is the cause of most drug overdoses.
