Some of the state's top law enforcement and health officials will come together to discuss the dangers of fentanyl.

A news conference is planned for Thursday at 11am at the headquarters of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

Fentanyl and fentanyl derivatives are powerful synthetic opioid drugs often imported and used by criminals to create counterfeit pills or to mix with other illegal drugs such as heroin and marijuana.
