Is the fentanyl overdose epidemic being blown out of proportion?

Not No! But hell NO!

I personally know of four deaths of young people under age 25 from fentanyl laced Percocet pills in the past 8 months.

One young man was an acquaintance of my daughter’s and three others are friends of a coworker’s step daughter who also happened to die of an overdose last Wednesday. Technically she wasn’t his step daughter but my coworker has lived with this young girl’s mother for over 10 years so he was pretty much a father figure.

Biden doesn’t get all the blame for the fentanyl carnage killing tens of thousands of Americans but he certainly is not without blame along with the 81 million fools who voted for this incompetent regime.

No, the epidemic is not being blown out of proportion. When someone can OD from merely handlined a pill laced with fentanyl, something has to be done.

The vast, VAST majority of this drug is coming up through the southern border. Biden's reversing course on Trump's work to shut down that illegal immigration is doing nothing but helping this drug make it into our country.

Sadly, I think we're at the point where people in the US will have to start dropping dead by the hundreds or even thousands per day before it (and the opioid epidemic it's a part of) will start being handled with something heavier and harsher than political rhetoric.

I know 6 people who have died off Fentanyl

1 was a guy i know who had major back issues and would run out of pain pills from the doctor so he went to the street to get pain pills and it was actually Fentanyl pills which killed him

the other ones just liked to get fricked up and the roulette trigger got the best of them (thinking it was cocaine and it was fent)

He didn't????? Why the frick do you think he was trying to build a fricking wall and not allow illegals into our country?

Then the fricking democrats stopped the wall and are letting millions of undicumented people enter who are bringing this shite over

50 illegal immigrants being dropped off in Martha's Vineyard is a bigger story than 100,000 people dying from fentanyl every year. We're fricked.

The majority of these deaths are not overdoses...they are poisonings. Most of the folks dying do not realize that they are taking fentanyl.

I'm still trying to wrap my head around why dealers are using fentanyl so much now to cut other drugs. It just seems bad for business to do things that kill their clientele. What happened to them using things like baking soda that are cheap and harmless?

Considering it’s one of, if not the, leading cause of death among young people, I’d say it’s serious. Also, considering it’s killed enough young people to impact the average life expectancy in the US for two years running, I’d say is damn serious.

I've been a part of a faith-based recovery group at a local church for over 2 years. One of our members died this morning of a heroin/fentanyl overdose. He'd been clean for a long time and was set to get married in 2 weeks. And yet we're giving billions to the clown in Kiev while this shite happens here.

The people who are doing the cutting aren't worried about 'clientele' in general the dealer on the street or around the corner isn't doing the cutting. He's distributing the product.



To the people doing the cutting, it actually benefits them to kill as many young Americans as possible.

It is not just fentanyl....drug abuse is a MAJOR PROBLEM in this country and our government does nothing.

They avoid the issue because it is tied to the border, and they know the border is 100% their fault!

Because it's China doing it. They aren't in it for money.

It’s an opiate so makes sense to lace heroin with it and make fake pills. Real pharmaceutical pills are hard to come by for many after Trump cracked down on it. So they started making counterfeit ones to sell but they either don’t measure it correctly or don’t tell the customer so customer may take too many pills at once thinking it’s just oxy.

They don’t lace cocaine with it intentionally. Most of that comes from idiotic street dealers cutting the coke on the same surfaces they cut heroin on without cleaning the surface and it gets laced by accident.

China isn’t doing the cutting. They just send fentanyl powder.

Dealers here use it to make pills and lace heroin. Cartels who move coke, H, etc aren’t using fentanyl. It’s 100% being done here by street dealers or middlemen suppliers in order to make their stuff more powerful and supply go further
