Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid developed as a strong pain killer of anesthesia-class of power. Fentanyl is approximately100 times more potent than morphine and 50 times more potent than heroin. It is the most powerful pain killer available in medicine today. It is easy to manufacture and very inexpensive as a street drug.
Carfentanil (monocarboxylic acid amide) is a synthetic opioid approximately 10,000 times more potent than morphine and 100 times more potent than fentanyl. It was originally intended as an anesthetic for large animals such as elephants, the largest land animal on the planet, and now your child might pop a few ‘salt grains’ of it during lunch hour at school because of peer pressure.
What a glorious day this is — I’m no longer afraid of heroin where my children and the children of other good people are concerned, cause here comes the newcomer fentanyl and its gargantuan evil big sister Carfentanil.
I’m a man with children that I dearly love. A man like me is scared of things that can hurt their children… like pieces of broken glass in the grass on a summer day; a bone in a piece of dinner fish that isn’t supposed to be there; a car wreck, a bully at school or an eye-poke by an errant stick.
All those things seem pretty benign and innocuous by comparison to what afflicts our children in the most lethal fashion in the world today — opioid drugs. Sick of hearing about it? I know I sure am. Yeah, yeah… I get it: drugs are the scourge of the universe and we need to educate our kids and to just say “no” and fight the peer pressure… bleah, bleah, bleah. Consider it done and crisis resolved.
A possible detriment to us as a people is that the scourge is just a rumor until it sucker punch us right square in the face. A boulder doesn’t really exist until we haul off and kick it as hard as we can with a bare foot. Injuries and diseases will never afflict us because we are young and tough and sling our pistols low… we are invincible.

And fentanyl is incredibly addictive.
Suddenly, the buffer of just one curious experiment with a drug is gone, and a child is butt-up against an event that takes them from zero to addiction in nothing flat. Even prank-slipping a dose is a joke gone ghoulishly awry. There are no trial runs with fentanyl; no test-fires… no “This one doesn’t count because I just wanted to see what it tasted like… how it felt.” Now you know both of those things and you will likely know them for the rest of your life.
Fentanyl is its own capital punishment for all offenses fentanyl, from J-walking to murder one; all offenses get no trial and result in death by injection. No false starts, no balks, no alibis, interference, technicalities, guilt by insanity temporary or otherwise… no mercy, quarter, armistice, ceasefire, nor free trials for 30 days or your money back. Fentanyl is the end. This is the end; this is fentanyl.
We are blessed with acetyl fentanyl, furanyl fentanyl, methylfentanyl, and norfentanyl… so many Fentanlys but why? Enter Chinese. China is the major illicit provider of fentanyl to the American opioid drug habit today. All the types of fentanyl above are the result of America’s cat-and-mouse game with China in an attempt to keep Fentanly away from our children: When one flavor of fentanyl is finally outlawed for import by the U.S., China develops a new flavor to keep the import of this American child-killing service up and running.

According to the Heritage Foundation, a think-tank, America suffered more than 49,000 deaths due to overdose of fentanyl in 2017. The Chinese equivalent to the American DEA takes zero responsibility for the export of fentanyl from its country and admits it has no plan to do anything about it. It’s apparently not time yet to take any action about it with China because, well… none of my kids have died yet from an overdose of it. But when that happens you mark my words I’ll be rallying in full force; by God, the outrage will be palpable!
The next-door neighbor’s kid overdosed on that stuff some nights ago. Thank God it wasn’t my kids. Now I still have time to kick back and veg out before the big rally. My kids would never touch that stuff. My kids would never ever lie to me or touch fentanyl, or at least that’s what they said last time I spent time with them. I know my kids because I’m a good parent. If nobody else will say it about me then I’ll say it about myself: I’z a GOOD parent!
Oh, darn it finally happened… my kid overdosed on fentanyl and died. I just feel so awful for him the poor little dear! So, it’s time then, right; time to rally around the fentanyl battle flag? TO ARMS THEN, FELLOWS! It’s time now to rally the masses and finally do something about those reprehensible fentanyl-mongering Chinese. Yeah, but… I’m the only one rallying right now because the others’ kids are still alive and they still have time left before enough is enough. But when that time does come you can bet it will be a blaze of glory! If I’m telling the truth, then I ask you: “Are we kidding ourselves?
This is fentanyl; this is the end.
By Almighty God and with honor,
(Feature photo shows a representative dose of fentanyl strong enough to kill a human who is not accustomed to the drug. A dose is equal to approximately seven grains of salt.)

Yep! Let’s keep that border WIDE open, so as to increase the flow of this crap. Heads should roll. Excellent article George.
I watched a video of a cartel “cook” who had been taught by a Chinese “cook” on how to make Fentanyl. The cartel hired the Chinese cook and flew him to Mexico to teach their cooks. The amount produced daily is shocking. That their is so much demand is disturbing. What better way to keep us weak but to keep us hooked on their drugs.
These pictures of parents passed out with kids looking on are horrifying. I can’t even imagine what these poor kids are going through now because CPS is involved. And we know how that can turn out. Not always good. God knows what their future looks like. For that matter, no telling what our future is like. As far as I know the US and Canada are the only two countries that allow Fentanyl’s use. Why that can’t change obviously has to do with money.
China and Mexico definitely have a large part to blame but they are not solely responsible for this large addiction crisis. We have to accept part of this blame. We’ve created a place where adult -children have to have safe places to go when they hear a different opinion that doesn’t mesh with their own. They have zero conflict management skills other than to retreat and hide or scream obscenities at the person who doesn’t have same pov. So what happens when they have to deal with real life? They can’t deal so they revert to abuses of drugs to help them “cope”. That’s just my pov for all the two cents it’s worth.
Thanks, Geo. You have a unique perspective and you’ve seen some of the affects up close and personal through your camera lenses.
The only thing big Pharma and Chinah care about is $$$$ as we see happening at the moment worldwide. How many deaths will it take for people to finally stand up and say enough is enough?

How did Scarface say it?
“First you get the drugs, then you get the women, then you get the power. Interesting trifecta model differing no much from my own; women, drugs, money… with any combo of two you will automatically get the third.
Cheers, Ms. Irene
Excellent read, Geo. Why our government hasn’t done more to stop fentanyl flow at the border is beyond me. Sadly, the deaths multiple.
I remember when I was in my early 20’s in the 90’s and dumba$$ suburban kids were dying from fentanyl laced heroin that they got from inner city dealers. At least back then your kid needed to be willing and able to drive to the inner city. Now the dealers are on call like DoorDash. All they need is a smartphone and a credit card or other account with money in it. Of course chiner is happy to send us all the deadly drugs.

Isn’t that a riot, Ms. Joie? What a disgusting model of efficiency we have created here. The suppliers will have to be accredited by the Narcotics Door Dash company. There will be background investigations to see if the supplier has (too many) arrests/convictions, whereby they may be turned down. They must have a valid ensured and registered auto.
Might as well be legal.

Love hearing from you. The grawlix is always welcome here where the beer is served.

In Vietnam…during the decades of “unpleasantness”… the Chinese pumped money into the drug market in South Vietnam to keep a large amount a bargain for GI’s…
george E. Hand IV says
And we thank them for that too — don’t we, YP? I vote we lace all our Big Macs in China with Fentanyl
Chiner. @#$%&! (I trust using a grawlix is permissible.)
Great read as always, Geo. (As was your book.) Hope all is well!
