In the report, “Increases in Fentanyl-Related Overdose Deaths — Florida and Ohio, 2013–2015,” on page 845, in “FIGURE. Number of fentanyl-related law enforcement submissions* and overdose deaths, and rate of fentanyl prescriptions — Florida and Ohio, January 2013–June 2015,” in the Florida line chart, the second and third labels in the legend should be reversed. The second label should read “Fentanyl-related overdose deaths,” and the third label should read “Fentanyl-related law enforcement submissions.”
