The opiate painkiller Fentanyl is so potent that touching it in powder form is an instant overdose. Heroin dealers have been lacing their product with the drug to intentionally kill customers via overdose because hardcore Heroin addicts will want their product because they believe that a deadly potency means a high quality product. We need to show the pharmaceutical companies that we will not tolerate the manufacturing and distribution of a substance that is widely used to intentionally kill people suffering from chemical dependency in order to make more money. This is a drug that needs to be banned and no longer manufactured, like Quaaludes were, because it isn't used as prescribed ever, and it's sole use in society is literally to murder people in hopes that others suffering from their illness will buy the "product" themselves and risk dying from an overdose themselves, which will only reinforce the belief among Heroin addicts that the substance's potency being deadly equates a high quality product, creating an unending cycle. Thousands of us have seen the effects this drug can have when used even for the first time. We have lost loved ones to the murderous greed of Heroin dealers only interested in making as much money as they can as quickly as they can at the cost of the lives of people who were suffering from an illness and trusted their dealer to not give them a drug intended to kill them.

My own brother, Robert Queiroz, was murdered in this fashion, taken from his daughter when both were far too young, and the people involved were never arrested.

Not one more death can be considered acceptable and any persons caught selling Fentanyl or Heroin laced with Fentanyl should be charged with either "Conspiracy to Commit Murder" or Attempted murder in the first degree as they sell the substance knowing full well that it is almost guaranteed to kill the majority of those who use it.

Please sign today and help make people struggling with addiction safer by eliminating the ability of dealers to ever get their hands on Fentanyl again. Because this is becoming a national epidemic and not a week goes by where you don't hear about someone in any given area being killed via an overdose given to them intentionally.

Our loved ones suffering from addiction don't deserve to die for their illness, they deserve to be given as many opportunities as necessary to be clean of whatever substance their personal demon takes form as, and to be given the chance to lead happy full lives without the crippling physical dependency a drug like Heroin imparts on the overwhelming majority of its users.
