New Ohio bill would decriminalize fentanyl drug testing strips


Thousands of Ohioans die every year from overdosing on drugs, and a new bill in the House is trying to save some of those lives.

House Bill 456 would decriminalize fentanyl drug testing strips.

Ohio has been referred to as “ground zero” for the opioid epidemic. For at least the past decade, Ohio ranks in the top five in the country for drug overdose death rate, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
