We are being lied to, transformed culturally and politically, and while all this goes on – drugged. In fact, San Francisco’s latest is to legalize psychedelic psilocybin mushrooms fro people age 21. Those are better known as Magic Mushrooms.
Seattle goes one better. They have ‘safe spaces’ for heroine and cocaine addicts to shoot up. They get the ‘good’ heroine and cocaine. They are awash with overdoses and this is the solution for the leftists. Police can’t do anything about it because they’ve basically legalized heroine and cocaine and taxpayers fund it.
Fentanyl, the leading cause of deaths, is a synthetic opioid 50 times more potent than heroine. It is being reported that marijuana and cocaine are being laced with it. People who doubt that is true should understand that people selling drugs are very capable of doing this. Don’t doubt that. The marijuana today is not your grandfather’s marijuana — in the least it’s laced with nicotine and the sellers lie and produce fake studies to hide the facts.

Keep in mind that because of delays in drug death reporting, the data is mostly but not entirely complete. The final numbers, released in December, could be even higher.
We have been saying for years the real data will be shocking. So here we have a staggering increase in the deaths of Americans from Fentanyl in 2016. The NYT deserves credit for reporting this.
The graphs are sickening but the public needs to know that the situation is out of control. Notice that the numbers are even higher than the Times estimated in June.
Also notice “Leading cause of death for Americans under 50”. <
But it is very disappointing that the NYT will not inform its readers of where the poison comes from [Mexico and China]. Typical for the MSM. The LEO Community on the Front Lines has every right to be angry.
Drug overdoses killed roughly 64,000 people in the United States last year, according to the first governmental account of nationwide drug deaths to cover all of 2016. It’s a staggering rise of more than 22 percent over the 52,404 drug deaths recorded the previous year — and even higher than The New York Times’s estimate in June, which was based on earlier preliminary data.<
Drug overdoses are expected to remain the leading cause of death for Americans under 50, as synthetic opioids — primarily fentanyl and its analogues — continue to push the death count higher. Drug deaths involving fentanyl more than doubled from 2015 to 2016, accompanied by an upturn in deaths involving cocaine and methamphetamines. Together they add up to an epidemic of drug overdoses that is killing people at a faster rate than the H.I.V. epidemic at its peak.
It’s too early to know what 2017 will hold, but anecdotal reports from state health departments and county coroners and medical examiners suggest that the overdose epidemic has continued to worsen. In March, President Trump created a commission to study the crisis. The commission’s interim report made a number of recommendations.
No action yet.
The explosion in fentanyl deaths and the persistence of widespread opioid addiction have swamped local and state resources. Communities say their budgets are being strained by the additional needs — for increased police and medical care, for widespread naloxone>distribution and for a stronger foster care system that can handle the swelling number of neglected or orphaned children.
