Dangers Of Fentanyl Death By Design

Introduction: What’s The Hold Up

Here is my take on this situation, I posted over on twitter late last month prior to the holidays when I came across this news article showing that Fentanyl is flooding into the country, so much so that the quantities were enough to kill every single person in our country. The dangers of fentanyl are quite evident as it’s been ravaging our communities for for years now.

I am appalled at the lack of action and more over disgusted by the constant criminalization of kratom or any nootropic that is non-fatal that can give people a reasonably safer alternative.

The question I keep coming back to is why is there so little done to combat this, it’s not as if we are limited in resources or geo-political influence, the U.S. has many times before exerted it’s influence in many parts of the world to get it’s desired results. Why is it turning a blind eye to the dangers of fentanyl now.

Why are we seeing little or no action in this area. So I ask the following questions quite often relating to this topic

  • Where Does It Originate
  • Can We Slap Sanctions On That Country
  • Why Are We Pretending We Have No Recourse

The Greater Issue

If policy makers are so adamant to criminalize kratom for it’s potential for abuse then I say why, here is a non-fatal plant substance that has proven to work, why do we not want American’s to have something that won’t kill them.

I feel this is a logical question to ask, when we know people seek out all types of illicit and dangerous substances to seek comfort from. 

It’s quite evident the drug problem is never going away, just as we have done in the judicial system to rectify the wrongs of the past with cannabis criminalization and have recognized as a society that some substances do not warrant such excessive criminal action why is it that kratom is still looked at as a threat.

The Goal

We have the opportunity to help individuals choose better alternatives but instead it appears the powers that be rather have you using heroin, opioids or fentanyl instead. 

All of those substances eventually kill, how many people need to die before politicians acknowledge their participation of the perpetuation of illicit and dangerous drug use.

Often policy makers know little to nothing about the circumstances of any situation, they maybe briefed but a short briefing will never provide a full picture of the situation. Laws are passed everyday by those who care less about what’s in those laws and how it effects people.

It’s clear and it should be to all of you that you are not the most important constituent to your local leader in office.

The Solutions

I have thought in great depth what we may do to begin changing the course of this tide. In order to stop the inevitable death of so many from these fatal drugs we need to educate, share and inform the masses that there alternatives.

There many things people can turn to that may help with pain, stress and anxiety that are either a nootropic or all natural plant based solutions and they work.

Changing the perception of the masses can be difficult but it seems even harder to convince law makers to take serious action towards eliminating the means in which these fatal drugs enter the country.

I ask why is it so tough to put pressure on the supply chains of fentanyl trafficking when we have seen the big dick that is swung in the name of the United States Of America around the globe for other geo-political reasons. 

Dangers Of Fentanyl Explored


I concluded that the reason nothing is done is because no one wants to do anything, they seem to be ok with people dying all over the country.

They’ll only address it in the press when it serves them to do so but otherwise it’s ignored, all the while something like kratom is put on the list of dangerous for potential for abuse.

You have to be stupid or incompetent to make such a conclusion when seeing the amount of deaths from overdoses relating to fentanyl.


What is fentanyl, and why is it so dangerous?

Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid medication that is many times more potent than morphine or heroin. It is typically prescribed to manage severe pain, such as that experienced by cancer patients. The danger lies in its potency, which can lead to rapid overdose and death if not used correctly.

How is fentanyl used and abused?

Fentanyl is available in various forms, including patches, lozenges, injections, and pills. It is intended for medical use under strict supervision. However, it is often diverted to the black market, where it is sold illicitly. People may also misuse prescription fentanyl by taking it without a doctor’s guidance, or they may seek it out specifically to use recreationally.

What are the immediate risks of fentanyl use?

Immediate risks include respiratory depression, which can lead to overdose and death. Other side effects may include drowsiness, confusion, nausea, and constipation. Combining fentanyl with other substances, especially alcohol or other opioids, can significantly increase the risk of overdose.

What are the signs of a fentanyl overdose?

Symptoms of a fentanyl overdose include extreme drowsiness, slow or shallow breathing, pinpoint pupils, and loss of consciousness. If someone exhibits these signs after fentanyl use, it’s a medical emergency, and immediate attention is necessary.

How can one prevent a fentanyl overdose?

The best way to prevent an overdose is to avoid using fentanyl without a prescription and without direct medical supervision. If you have a legitimate fentanyl prescription, it’s essential to use it as directed and never take more than the prescribed amount. If you suspect someone is overdosing, call 911 immediately.

What are the long-term dangers of fentanyl use?

Long-term use of fentanyl can lead to physical dependence and addiction. It can also result in a host of health problems, such as respiratory issues, cardiovascular problems, and cognitive impairment. Additionally, individuals who misuse fentanyl may face legal consequences.

How is fentanyl addiction treated?

Treating fentanyl addiction typically involves a combination of behavioral therapy and medications. Medications like buprenorphine or methadone can help reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Behavioral therapies, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, can help individuals develop coping skills and address the underlying issues that contributed to their addiction.

Is fentanyl more dangerous than other opioids?

Fentanyl is more dangerous in terms of potency, which means a very small amount can lead to overdose. However, other opioids like heroin and prescription painkillers can also be deadly and addictive. All opioids come with risks and should be used only as directed by a healthcare professional.

Can fentanyl be detected in drug tests?

Yes, fentanyl can be detected in drug tests, including urine, blood, and hair tests. It’s important to note that many standard drug tests do not specifically screen for fentanyl, but it can be identified if labs specifically look for it.

Where can I get help for fentanyl addiction or abuse?

If you or someone you know is struggling with fentanyl addiction or abuse, seek help immediately. Contact a healthcare provider, addiction specialist, or a local treatment center. Support and resources are available to help individuals recover and regain control of their lives.
