THE OPIOID CRISIS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(A)  Did you know…There are 3 MAJOR FACTS to the opioid epidemic crisis? 

  1. Prescription drugs
  2. Heroin
  3.  CarFentanil

(B)  Did you know or are you aware that the drugs on the street such as marijuana and cocaine and other drugs; are being laced(intertwine) with Carfentanil, meaning that people are receiving and smoking drugs that are causing so many people to be affected and or die.

Google; CarFentanil and see the reports how this drug is so powerful that it is used to sedate elephants. CarFentanil, with only  a few granules the size of grains of table salt, can be lethal.

If you think I am just putting that out there–YOU ARE WRONG!

On November 1, 2017, I went to a  forum entitled:
 Opioid Use: An Epidemic of Addiction not Abuse, at George Washington, University that the opioid deaths in Washington, DC, has double since last year and that the 3 facts of the opioid drugs listed above may be the cause.

What is heartbreaking for me as a native Washingtonian,  is the fact that  I have lived through the crack-cocaine  epidemic era and to hear DC opioid deaths have doubled–the question to ponder:
IS my city Washington, DC, preparing to become the murder capital of the world again? Or will your city or state take that title because of the MUST HAVE  for the opioid drug and the withdrawal?

The panel of distinctive guest Opioid Use: An Epidemic of Addiction not Abuse, included:

Dr. Lynn Goldman
Michael and Lori Milken Dean Milken Institute School of Public Health, The George Washington University

Dr. Grant Baldman,
Director Division of Unintentional injury Prevention at the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

Captain Jennifer Fan,
Pharmacist, Center for Substance Abuse Prevention, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)

Gary Mendell, Chairman and CEO, Shatterproof

Another fact that is  heartbreaking to see and read is what the opioid crisis is doing to people. The Sackler dynasty’s ruthless marketing of painkillers has generated billions of dollars—and millions of addicts. 

What the hell is wrong with this picture. The time has arrived for EDUCATION. HOPE. SOLUTIONS. for the opioid crisis, and  the affects  as well as the  social and emotional effects, that our children and families are facing.

Or is this a  Plague or a  form of genocide.


I encourage you to watch this youtube video by Dr. Gabor Mate’ to gain insight on the opioids crisis and answers concerning the  ACE study, as well as  drugs and slavery.
