The opiod epidemic is now taking more young lives (20- and 30-year-olds, primarily) than automobile accidents; why is the president not even talking about this issue? Hundreds of thousands of beautiful lives have been lost to opiod addiction disease; this spans all socio-economic classes, all occupations; it affects all races, republican and democrats and everyone in between.
My story: My 33-year-old son, Christopher--a budding entrepreneur, technocrat wiz, college educated, animal-lover, beloved son and brother-- battled Opiod Substance Use Disorder for over a decade before his death on June 5, 2016. He struggled, but cleaned up and was doing great for the past 3 years, then on June 4, 2016 he ran out of his medication early, made the bad choice, went to the streets to buy one dose of heroin because he could no longer tolerate the withdrawals; he was to see his doctor in two days. Well, some person gave him 100% pure Chinese furanyl fentanyl instead of heroin (had no heroin in it); he, sadly, ingested and died instantly. This fentanyl was most-likely mailed to someone in the United States directly from a Chinese "Pharmaceutical Company" (it didn't pass through Mexico; thus, no border wall is going to keep these drugs out). These killer fentanylsl, have no smell (even to dogs), is easy to ship, and is dirt CHEAP; in fact cheaper than heroin. Chinese pharmaceutical companies are also sending us fake OxyContins, narcos, Xanax, etc, some laced with fentanyl. The Chinese government knows what is going on, but refuses to do anything about it. MONEY OVER HUMAN LIVES ATTITUDE!
PLEASE, STOP ALLOWING DEADLY PHARMACEUTICAL DRUGS TO BE IMPORTED FROM CHINA, and ADD HARSH PENALTIES TO INDIVIDUALS AND COMPANIES THAT DO NOT ABIDE.
Thank you for your support in saving young lives!
