TALLAHASSEE (FLV) – Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody told President Joe Biden that he must address the fentanyl crisis at his meeting with Mexico President López Obrador. 

Moody made her remarks on Twitter Tuesday, hours before Biden meets with the Mexican president at the White House. 

“At your meeting with Mexico President López Obrador today, YOU MUST address: Fentanyl. Fentanyl. Fentanyl. Fentanyl. Fentanyl. Fentanyl. Fentanyl. Fentanyl. Fentanyl. Fentanyl. Fentanyl. Fentanyl. Fentanyl. Fentanyl. Fentanyl. Fentanyl. Fentanyl. Fentanyl. Fentanyl,” Moody said. 

Fentanyl is the leading cause of death in the United States for people 18 to 45. Just two milligrams of fentanyl can be a fatal dose. 

Gadsden County reportedly saw a wave of fentanyl overdose deaths over the July 4th holiday weekend. The shocking spike led First Lady Casey DeSantis to visit the county and launch a statewide public messaging advisory warning people about the dangers of fentanyl. 

“It is primarily being manufactured in China and pouring across our southern border. It is imperative that Floridians know the risks and understand that just two milligrams can be lethal,” Casey DeSantis said. 

The DeSantis Administration recently applauded the Supreme Court for  granting its petition for a statewide grand jury to examine international human smuggling networks. The grand jury will allow the state to gather critical information on the harmful effects of illegal immigration and the flow of illicit drugs like fentanyl. 

Gov. Ron DeSantis has slammed the Biden Administration for “disastrous” policies leading to an influx of people and crime over the border. 

The Administration created a task force in Northwest Florida to crack down on human smuggling and drug possession. Just in the first three days, law enforcement found enough fentanyl on smugglers, 4 grams, to kill 2,000 Floridians. 

“We do not want this in our state. And so we are going to react very strongly against that,” DeSantis said. 

The Governor also signed legislation that will increase penalties for those dealing and distributing fentanyl in Florida. The law goes into effect in October. 

“If you are dealing fentanyl, you are killing people and you are going to be put in jail,” DeSantis said. 

In May, several law enforcement officials shared stories during the press conference of how fentanyl has killed Florida residents. Officials said they have found medications with fentanyl, like Oxycodone, that consumers are not aware are there.
