“Yes, I can confirm Adam died from a fentanyl overdose,” Rick Harrison told The New York Post.“The fentanyl crisis in this country must be taken more seriously,” Harrison continued when speaking to the Post’s reporter. “It seems it is just flowing over the borders and nothing is being done about it. We must do better.”
