Today, I introduced the STOP Act in the House, the same bill @senrobportman introduced in the Senate, to close loopholes and stop dangerous synthetic drugs from being shipped across our borders. 
Recently, a dangerous spike in overdoses hit our own communities in Cincinnati, Columbus and across #Ohio because of the extreme potency of synthetic drugs mixed with heroin. The STOP Act would enhance the U.S. Postal Service’s process of tracking shipments from foreign countries to detect illicit and counterfeit goods, like synthetic drugs such as fentanyl and carfentanil, and stop them from crossing our borders into the United States. 
In Ohio, we must stand on a united front to fight the opioid epidemic and save more lives. I’m thankful for Sen. Portman’s leadership & I look forward to building support for this important legislation in the House.
