Family members whose relatives have died from pills containing fentanyl seek to raise awareness among parents, urge deeper law enforcement investigations, and change the language used to describe deaths away from terms such as overdose, which can place blame on victims rather than the illegal distributors and manufacturers of deadly counterfeit pills.
