Tucker Charles Roe, poisoned by Fentanyl  (Mar. 11 2002 – Sep. 23, 2021), the son of TXAF.org Founder Stefanie Turner


We must move from a general awareness of fentanyl and its dangers to a knowledge. The only way to accomplish this is through education. Texas Against Fentanyl is a thought leader in driving this information and we will not back down. Human lives are on the line, many of them not even given the opportunity to grow into an adult.

Why this Matters

The Fentanyl epidemic is a growing public health crisis that is affecting communities across the U.S. In 2021 there were 70,601 deaths reported due to Fentanyl overdoses. Fentanyl is a powerful synthetic opioid that is made illegally and similar to morphine but is 50 to 100 times more potent.


“Today [May 9, 2023] the House passed out HB 3908, Tucker’s Law, to help ensure our kids are education about the dangers of fentanyl. This was brought to us by Tucker’s mother, Stefanie Turner, who was with us at the Capitol today. I want to thank her, and the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office, for all the work done so far on this issue and for what will be done in the future to protect children from illegal and dangerous drugs in our community.”

The Tucker Project Goals

Make a radical impact and save lives

By aligning a Fentanyl curriculum to state health education standards, teachers can more easily integrate it into their lesson plans and ensure that it meets the relevant learning objectives and criteria for effective health education.

Students will receive the knowledge and skills they need to bring awareness, prevent harm, and promote public health in the face of the Fentanyl epidemic.

The Tucker Project Will:

Educate students and communities about the dangers of Fentanyl

Help participants identify the risks and harms associated with Fentanyl use

Instruct how to respond in the event of an overdose

Point out signs of Fentanyl use
