I think that the supply will always be there and it futile to try and limit it. Just a big farce and hocus pocus show. What the government needs to do is work on reducing demand just like they did with smoking.
Thanks to the US govt., almost nothing is being done to stop this scourge. Instead, huge companies are profiting off of rehabilitation services, and dealers on all levels grow richer. It's a giant circle-jerk that _many people_ don't want to see the end of. Meanwhile taxpayers, cops, and junkies all get to foot the bill.
You're not going to stop the import of drugs. You're certainly not going to stop the use of drugs. Give people options to use safe drugs (or use dangerous drugs safely), and you'll see a huge reduction in purchasing this bullshit. The popularity of fentanyl and its analogues is a product of drug prohibition.
Long range drones are the future of fentanyl transportation. Because of its weight:cost ratio it can be very cost effective to program an LR drone to transport to a specific location and drop a significant amount.
That Chinese official is obviously corrupt. He is very quick to put up an invalid strawman - as if legalization of hemp has ANYTHING to do with the export from China of Fentanyl. He is just trying to direct attention away from the subject.
3:53. The fact that he is trying to say that cannabis is just as bad as herion, fentanyl, and other opium based products shows the true ignorance of him. Cannabis takes zero life's a day in the United States. Opium on the other hand kills about 175 people a day from ODs.
In the last 5 years, Customs has tripled the rate of fentanyl seizures. But the quantity coming into the country has likely increased many times that. Only a government employee would celebrate getting further behind, just because they've been busier.
The DEA guys get paid regarless of how many of these drugs land in the USA. No matter what new drugs and addictions come down the pipeline, etc... Drugs are more accessible than ever. they are basically legal. I'd say it's time to try a new approach. My taxes are high enough
They are not stopping every last drug addict in the U.S. from still doing their heroin and fentanyl and cocaine they arent even putting a dent in it. Why not just legalize it and let people use what they want to use. Its actually against our constitutional rights to use whatever drugs we want. I dont know who the federal government think they are making it illegal to have and use drugs, just a hoax to lock people up, tax citizens more money, and create hundreds of thousands of jobs across The U.S. such as cops, jail workers, government workers, DEA, rehabs, counselors, doctors border patrol agents, d.o.c., D.o.j, immigration lawyers, parole officers etc. the list can go way further than that. Just think what would all these corrupt people do for a job if these drugs were legalised? They would be worthless bums so they conspired to make it illegal thanks to the government to scam the country out of money. because of making it illegal its all one big scam thats not stopping one person from selling or using if thats what they want to do. Just creating millions of jobs for people to tell you, you cant have or use drugs they get paid billions, all while the people still sell and buy drugs almost unaffected by the illegalization of drugs. How much bigger of a scam could they pull off? Has to be the most wrong scam in the history of the world.
It seems to me a man could get some coca cola or Dr pepper and boil it down to stiff syrup then blend in illicit fentanyl and have no problems selling it as black tar heroin, running the numbers on it with the local market where I live you can easily quadruple your profit
After watching this I'm positive that this is a Chinese Government Operation. They call this a slow kill. It's probably payback for the opium wars long ago. So to rule out what im saying and think it's stupid read about the opium wars first. Then you can see how doing this is more cost affective then a real war. Thus is a form of demoralization.
Trust me when i say this, one person just looking to make a few grand a month...can order fentanyl from a out of country source they can put enough of fentanyl in a manilla envelope to make that money...even in a couple regular envelopes ..and they never get found..they are seizing boxes of the stuff...the stuff in envelopes are coming in the country untouched
Fentanyl? That's kids play. Vice needs to cover more serious issues such as the illegal production, distribution and consumption of memes throughout the European Union. Memes are much more rampant, widespread and influential.
I know where that Chinese guy is coming from because I'm a well educated Chinese. First, China has minimum drug problems compared to the United States. I would say 99% of the young people never touch drug it feels like a remote issue. This is because most drug dealers in China get straight death panelty. Second, marijuana is considered a drug in China, which is not considered too far from heroin, fentanyl and meths. They all belong to the same term in Chinese which is 毒品, which directly translates to "toxic substance", so that people immediatly considered them very harmful. Any celebrity who uses drug including marijuana is despised by the general public and banned. I know that marijuana is not deadly and very different from opiods like fentanyl, but all drugs falls into the same "very wrong stuff to do" category in China, and marijuana is not really considered "a better option" like it is in the United States. Surely the use of marijuana will not directly lead to fentanyl but there are a lot of cases where people find marijuana to be not strong enough and go for harder drugs, who knows.
the issue with fentanyl wouldn't be around if the government would hold the pharmaceutical companies in the FDA accountable for allowing Dr to prescribe Fentanyl and other opiates instead of just blaming others the American and Canadian governments should take full responsibility for allowing this crisis to happen in the first place.
Sigh This is yet another one of the endless reasons to end the war on drugs if all these new drugs of today are more tightly controlled try and imagine what kind of deadly f*cked up sh*t people will be getting high on in 20 years so first there was coke and speed and then y'all think this new stuff like bath salts or shake n bake meth is bad just wait just wait enough to kill the entire city you say? that's lovely well add it to the list and let's see what comes next why don't we SIGH
2017 here in Florida and my daughter whom had an addiction od and i found her in my bathroom and i thought she shot up heroin .
