September 7, 2023

According to WMUR, Manchester education officials are asking for more federal money to stop illegal drugs from spreading through the city’s schools.

The Drug Enforcement Administration said that in 2022 alone, it seized 16 billion pills, and a majority were laced with fentanyl.

Education officials in Manchester said they’re worried about how fast drugs are spreading throughout the city’s schools, something they said is largely fueled by social media.
