Speaking at the U.S. District Court in Concord on Thursday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a surge in federal enforcement efforts around synthetic opioids.
Sessions said he's sending an additional prosecutor to ten districts across the country that've been hardest hit by the opioid crisis. New Hampshire is one of them.
"Our goal is to reduce crime, reduce fentanyl, reduce deaths in this country," Sessions said. "We are not going to stand by while deaths continue to go up."
