    More people died last year from opioid deaths in America , More than the twenty years of the Viet -Nam  war !        And we are wondering what is wrong in the American culture scene , high schools ,colleges , Holly-Wood . 

    Seriously , Isn't the altered minds  of your youth culture the real problem today ?

      The opioids are the modern day MK-ultra mind control drugs. (LSD was in the 60's and 70's) 

      It is expected that 75,000 people will die this year because of opioids. We need to put the people responsible for this in the grave instead.

    Governor Christie: "The opioid crisis didn’t start on January 20th, 2017. I want you to tell me one thing Barack Obama did to deal with this crisis. I want you to tell me whether he declared a public health emergency. I want you to tell me whether or not he appointed a commission with no strings attached to come forward with recommendations. I want you to tell me whether Barack Obama instructed his CMS Director to grant waivers to allow treatment to be more available. You know, the fact of the matter is the President has already done more in the 10 months that he’s been in office than Barack Obama did on this problem in eight years, and if you don’t believe me read the two GAO reports that evaluated the efforts of the Obama administration regarding the drug addiction crisis in this country. And I’ve read both of them, and they’re available online and you should read them, because what they’ll say is that their efforts were a complete failure. So I’m tired of people being critical of the President in this area because he hasn’t fixed this problem in 10 months that’s been a problem that’s been a decade or more in the making. He’s done more in this 10 months than any President has before him, and he deserves great credit for that. Am I saying he has defeated the problem? Absolutely not. In fact, the problem is going to get worse before it gets better. I believe that and you know who else believes it? The President who, when he gave his speech declaring the public emergency said so. We all know that 2017 will be a worse year than 2016 was, and I suspect that 2018 will be even worse. One other thing the President has done, and he’s told me this directly, he has elevated the issue of fentanyl and carfentanil to the Presidential level in his conversations with the Chinese. And he has made very clear to President Xi, that what we will take responsibility for demand we have for fentanyl and carfentanil, in this country, that President Xi has to take responsibility for the supply that’s flooding this country. President Obama never elevated the issue of fentanyl of carfentanil to the Presidential level in direct conversations with the Chinese President. So I think when people realty examine the record that the President’s put forward already—he deserves great credit. Whether or not people’s particular point of view will permit them to give that credit is another issue to discuss. But, the facts are there to give this President credit on this issue. And he’s got more to do, and I said yesterday at the Congressional Hearings in Baltimore—they asked who, why isn’t there a czar in the White House? I said the czar is the President, and he’s going to hold people like Seema and Secretary Designate Azar of H.H.S. and Attorney General Sessions, and others responsible for implementing this report."

    I baffles me to no end that the American public sat back and watched the disintegration of the Justice System in America for  the last forty years or so  and did as they do nothing now , at the same time watching certain elements like violent crime and opioid , crack cocaine , heroin addictions rise through the roof ?
    To the point where it actually alters our cultural make up .

    Almost every crime committed today is directly related to these addictions .

      Baltimore cops served a warrant on Corner Discount Store, found enough Fentanyl to paralyze the City.

      Lowell man accused of human sex trafficking with fentanyl, setting 'quota for encounters' each night.

      Crazy stuff!
