China Adding Fentanyl-Related Compounds to its List of Controlled Substances

U.S. President Donald Trump said last year, if China placed controls on fentanyl, the move would be a "game changer"

China said Monday it is adding all fentanyl-related compounds to its list of controlled substances, beginning May 1.

U.S. officials have long campaigned for the move. Fentanyl, and compounds that mimic its effects, are blamed for tens of thousands of opioid overdose deaths in the U.S. each year.
