House Dems Block GOP Bill to Make Fentanyl-Related Substances Schedule I Drugs
Why do you suppose the demoRATs oppose this bill ? How many more deaths do they want ? Dems can stop Mexico from bringing drugs into the US at anytime but they allow dangerous drug smugglers to breach our border by the thousands . Hell they put them up in plush hotel rooms at taxpayer expense !!!
Maybe liberal jokester Aaron has a stupid answer LOL
A bill that would permanently put fentanyl-related substances in schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act was blocked on Wednesday by 220 House Democrats who voted against considering the legislation that would have given the government more power to crack down on the criminal enterprises profiting off of lethal fentanyl-related drugs.
The legislation, embedded below, is fairly straightforward in its goal of classifying drugs that are similar to fentanyl — but have been chemically modified to avoid being identical — in the same schedule as the deadly drug that is the basis of any those analogues.
According to the Drug Enforcement Administration’s info sheet on such drugs, “Synthetic opioids, especially those substances related in chemical structure to fentanyl, a potent opioid analgesic with approved medical use, have resulted in an unprecedented number of overdoses in the United States.”
Fentanyl without a doubt a national crisis, as dopeyBiden’s own DEA commissioner has warned the drugs are killing Americans “at rates never seen before.” Even worse, recent reworking of fentanyl and such drugs’ appearance — so-called “rainbow fentanyl” — has taken place to make them appear similar to candy for targeting to children. Ahead of Halloween, new warnings are being issued that the rainbow fentanyl or other lethal variants of the drug may find their way into trick-or-treater’s candy hauls.
