Sara Carter has been a leading force in reporting on the dangerous levels of fentanyl that are crossing our borders and making its way into common street drugs, killing our citizens at an alarming rate.

The tragic story of a 13-year-old Hartford, Connecticut student is becoming all too familiar. The young boy, whose name is not being released at this time, overdosed on fentanyl while at school last week.

According to law enforcement officials, the seventh-grader was listed in “grave condition” at the hospital after he collapsed in the gymnasium at the Sports and Medical Science Academy on Thursday.

The New York Post reports:

After he collapsed, a school nurse performed CPR on the unconscious boy until EMTs arrived and rushed him to Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. Police said they found evidence of the opiate — which is fatal if taken even in tiny doses — near the teenager.

Two other potential victims, who never lost consciousness, were identified by school staff and admitted to the hospital for observation after complaining of dizziness. Police believed all three had come into contact with the deadly drug at the same time. Those two students had been released from the hospital and were at home by Saturday, officials said.

The school was evacuated and drug-sniffing dogs were brought in to help with a thorough search of the building, officials said. During the search, police found 40 small bags containing what was determined to be powdered fentanyl, Hartford Police Lt. Aaron Boisvert told reporters at a press conference. The bags were found in two classrooms and the gymnasium.

The school was closed on Friday and will be closed for Martin Luther King Day on Monday while the building is wiped clean. The state Department of Public Health will notify school officials when it is deemed safe to return.

Police said they believe the students brought the drugs to school and no arrests have been made. An investigation is ongoing.

    Children have very little critical thought. All that is overwhelmed by the promise of drug induced freeing of the body-mind from the weight of today’s constant drumbeat of negativity. So, unable to process that climate of ‘negative’ emotions the snake oil that drugs offer is too good, for many kids, to pass on. The programs for kids to shape good character are largely gone from society. When is the last time anybody saw Boy or Girl Scouts around town, in uniform? Frankly, our moral compass, especially for kids, has been flushed down a dark hole.

      Kids today are taught what to think not how to think. Ct cities continue to close all outlets for children to learn and adapt to critical thinking. It’s sad I worked for New Haven starting in ’85 and have seen the decline in all activities that offered an education and free thinking

    This death rests squarely on Joe Biden’s head along with all Democrats that are for open borders. They would be accusing us if the tables were turned here so why are we not accusing them of this death? The Democrats have so much blood on their hands with all of their policies.

    I cannot understand why there isn’t any curiosity or investigation in to how much drug cartel money is funneled to Democrats to keep our border wide open. Democrats are losing the Hispanic vote, bigly, because a whole lot of my Hispanic friends tell me the Democrats are in the pocket of the cartels, and their community knows it. But no one seems to care.

    Drug dealers need to be caught, tried and executed on the spot.
    It’s the ONLY way to an end to this blight on our society.

TN Republican introduces legislation to fight opioid shipments into U.S.

Published

Fentanyl 1031234188 scaled

Tennessee Republican Representative Diana Harshbarger is attempting to fight the opioid crisis and epidemic through new legislation. Introduced Friday, Harshbarger told the Daily Caller:

The Daily Caller first obtained a copy of the legislation, which addresses what Harshbarger calls a “loophole.” The legislation amends the Controlled Substances Act to specifically require registrants to investigate reports of suspicious orders of controlled substances and halt them if necessary. Under the version of the act currently in force, drug manufacturers and distributors are only required to report suspicious orders of opioids and other controlled substances to the DEA.

“Breaking the opioid epidemic’s stranglehold on our nation is one of my foremost priorities. In an effort to do so, my colleagues and I have identified a loophole that allows distributors to continue order fulfillment, even under suspicious circumstances.”

“My bill closes that loophole with the requirements and guardrails needed to ensure these addictive and potentially dangerous drugs do not fall into the wrong hands while the DEA investigates. The future of our nation depends on us solving the addiction crisis, and this is a step towards that outcome” Harshbarger continued.

The Daily Caller reports:

According to a congressional report released in September, the opioid crisis cost the U.S. $1.5 trillion during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The CDC says 93,331 people died from overdoses in the U.S. in 2020, the highest in 50 years. Opioid-related deaths made up nearly three-quarters of the total.

Pharmaceutical companies have been blamed for contributing to the opioid epidemic. The Department of Justice is currently suing the pharmaceutical company AmerisourceBergen over allegations the company failed to report suspicious orders of opioids to federal law enforcement.
