Jelly Roll delivers impassioned testimony before Congress as lawmakers push for new anti-fentanyl legislation

Grammy-nominated singer Jason DeFord, known to fans as Jelly Roll, urged lawmakers on Thursday to pass anti-fentanyl legislation and invoked his own past with substance abuse in an effort to help save lives.

DeFord testified in front of the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs as ranking member Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) continued to push for the passage of his bill, the Fentanyl Eradication and Narcotics Deterrence (FEND) Off Fentanyl Act. “I was a part of the problem. I am here now, standing as a man that wants to be a part of the solution,” DeFord said during his opening remarks.
