For teens and children it is much, much less

 One grain can kill a baby

Devastating Results

 Policies have driven up fentanyl usage, death and devastation. Colorado ranks the highest in fentanyl death increases in the nation. 

 Five children and teens died of fentanyl overdoses in 2021, the youngest was 18 months old.

FENTANYL ROULETTE

 No way to know if street drugs are laced with fentanyl. 

Illicitly manufactured fentanyl (IMF) can come in a white powder, added to other drugs, made into liquid and pressed into fake medications such as oxycodone, hydrocodone.

 DEA lab testing reveals that four out of every ten fake pills with fentanyl contain a lethal dose.

Fentanyl is being produced in industrial-scale cartel labs in Mexico from Chinese-made materials before its smuggled into the United States.

 The southern border of the US is a frequent point of entry for 

smuggled IMF and the amounts are increasing every year.

The profit potential with  Illicitly manufactured fentanyl is a clear motivation for the Cartels, who can purchase a kilogram of illicit fentanyl from China for about $5,000 and convert it to products with a market value of upward of $1.5 million.

Colorado Politicians?

“Fentanyl  crisis? I don't have the jurisdiction to make this a fentanyl crisis.“

Ken Salazar
United States Ambassador to Mexico

Colorado Native

Former Colorado Attorney General

Former Colorado U.S. Senate

United States Secretary of the Interior

Salazar will not even talk with the Editorial Board of the Gazette, published in Denver, because he does not want to talk about the topic of illicit manufactured fentanyl coming in from Mexico.
Solutions
FENT_banners_solutions.png

The fentanyl crisis must be addressed from every angle. Including international pressure on the CCP from the Federal Government; Closing the borders; Classifying fentanyl as a WMD; to Criminalizing and harassing drug trafficking in every single state and locality.

 1.  Share information about fentanyl with your children, your family and your friends! Encourage them to do the same.

Part of us combating fentanyl is awareness

“We cannot do this alone. We’re reaching out to families to educate their children, educate their loved ones.” -El Paso County Undersheriff, Joe Roybal

Every single person in the community needs to know the threat that is happening.

Don't be afraid to ask for help and resources from schools, law enforcement and churches! 

 A current lifesaving medication.

 Discussion Questions about Fentanyl 

What is fentanyl? What is it made from? How is it used medically? Why is it so dangerous? How large is a lethal dose for a normal sized adult? How much will make an adult high? How much will kill a baby?

 

How does the strength of fentanyl compare to heroin? Morphine?

Is fentanyl easily detectable? What age group is being targeted with fentanyl? Can you name a street name for Fentanyl? What form is fentanyl manufactured?

 

What social status of society is being affected by Fentanyl? Can you name anyone who has died from a fentanyl overdose?

 

What state is experiencing fentanyl as the highest cause of death for ages 18-45? Can you name a DEA campaign against fentanyl? What medication can be given that will reverse an opioid overdose?

 

How would the media react to a plane crash every single day? What state made it a misdemeanor for 5,000-10,000 lives in their pocket and the same time made it a felony to have 16 bullets in a gun magazine?

 

What is the Colorado legislature response to the deadly information about fentanyl? Why is fentanyl so prevalent in Colorado? Why is Colorado rank virtually the highest in fentanyl death increases in the nation?

 

What does IMF stand for? Why are street drugs laced with fentanyl so deadly? How many FAKE pills (every 10 pills = xpills?) are laced with a deadly dose of fentanyl? Where does IMF come from? Who profits from IMF? How much does a kilogram of IFM cost and what is the market value of that kilogram? Can you name ways IFM is smuggled across the southern border? Which state is dealing with the problem of IMF?

Should IMF be classified as WMD? Is fentanyl warfare against the United States from China? If so, why?

What can we do about the fentanyl crisis?
