Over 100 bags of the lethal drug fentanyl that has been claiming the lives of thousands around the U.S. were found in a 13-year-old’s bedroom after he died from the substance. The boy collapsed while at school, the Sports and Medical Science Academy in Hartford, Connecticut.

The boy died two days later at the hospital due to a fentanyl overdose, police said. The school was shut down and searched after two more students reported dizziness and were taken to the hospital for evaluation.

CBS News reports “drug tests later confirmed that fentanyl – a synthetic opioid that’s up to 100 times stronger than morphine – was in a substance located near the students. Authorities believe all three came in contact with the substance at the same time.”

While the school was in lockdown, drug detecting canines found around 40 bags of fentanyl at the school. When the boys room was searched later after police obtained a search warrant, an astounding 100 bags of fentanyl were discovered.

The drugs were packaged the same and with the same identifying stamp as the bags found at the school. “There isn’t any evidence to suggest that anyone besides the teen, who has not been named, brought the bags of fentanyl to school, officials said.”

“They are confident that the same fentanyl found in his bedroom was what caused his overdose” reports CBS. The bags were collected and given to the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) for evaluation.

The DEA confirmed the drugs had an “extremely high purity level” at 58 to 60%. Hartford police sergeant Chris Mastroianni said at a town hall meeting earlier this week that the bags found were “about 50 times stronger than an already very strong bag of fentanyl.”

The bags will undergo further testing including fingerprint and DNA testing with the hopes of finding the individual(s) who gave the teen the deadly drug. CBS reports a person of interest who has a history with narcotics and the house where the drugs were found has been identified by police, but that person is not a suspect at this time. The boy’s mother has been fully cooperative with the investigation said police.

    The SMSA high school was closed for several days after the student’s death because there were sections of it that had to be decontaminated. It is thought that the two boys who became ill had merely come into contact with traces of the fentanyl. The boy who dies collapsed in a gym class.

    The Fentanyl was not given to the kid nor anyone else. He had to buy it or is distributing it. There is a big difference. When will people wake up? Since the President or his CO HORTS won’t shut down the border to keep this garbage from coming across we, The people The Citizens may have to hid out at the border and start playing target shooting with the moles. I am just sick of it. And the Layers that defend these POS, should get the same.

    I also would like to know why there is no way to share here? How are those that don’t care to look for things and only stumble on to something.

    This is so sad. Why and how would a 13 year old boy have access to 140 bags of this killer drug? We MUST close the southern border to Mexico. This should be a non-political commitment to save the lives of our citizens.

China

Chinese Communist Party gives funding and tax rebates to fentanyl producers

A 64-page report released Tuesday by the House Committee on the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) states China has been subsidizing the manufacturing and exporting of illicit fentanyl precursor chemicals and other synthetic narcotics through tax rebates and other means.

“Many of these substances are illegal under the PRC’s own laws and have no known legal use worldwide,” the 64-page report states. “Like its export tax rebates for legitimate goods, the CCP’s subsidizing of illegal drugs incentivizes international synthetic drug sales from the PRC. The CCP has never disclosed this program.”

The bipartisan investigation was led by Chairman Mike Gallagher (R., Wis.) and Ranking Member Raja Krishnamoorthi (D., Ill.). Additional details were uncovered as to the extent of China’s role in the U.S. fentanyl epidemic, including that the CCP-run government gives monetary grants and awards to companies that illegally traffic fentanyl and other drugs.

National Review summarizes the report which also found that the CCP holds ownership interest in several Chinese companies tied to drug trafficking, impedes U.S.-led investigations into manufacturers producing fentanyl and precursors, allows the open sale of drugs on the Chinese internet, and fails to censor online content on narcotics set to be exported. Notably, the Chinese government censors content about domestic drug sales but not exported ones.

“These actions and omissions are abhorrent, violate the laws of nations, and have led to profound human suffering in the United States and around the world,” the report reads. “They also, as a factual matter, further the PRC’s strategic and economic interests.”

In his prepared opening remarks Tuesday morning, former U.S. attorney general Bill Barr called the months-long investigation and subsequent report “groundbreaking” as he testified before the congressional panel. “The Committee’s work has uncovered persuasive evidence that the PRC and CCP are not just bystanders; they are the prime movers,” Barr said. “They are knee deep in actively sponsoring, encouraging, and facilitating the production and export of fentanyl and fentanyl precursors for distribution in the United States.”
