Texas Governor Greg Abbott is signing a bill establishing a ten year mandatory minimum for those caught with at least four grams of fentanyl. Abbott told reporters in Houston today state troopers have seized enough fentanyl this year to kill everyone in Texas and California combined.

The governor says drug dealers are adding fentanyl to other drugs like ecstasy before selling it to others. Those caught with more than 200 grams of fentanyl will get 15 years while those with more than 400 will get 20 years behind bars.
